Who Else Can I Still Be?
For Sunday Scribblings assignment #20.
Gosh, I think about this all the time. Sometimes I think I'm out of time, and I've missed my window of opportunity to do something great. Sometimes I just think that I could be so much MORE than I am. But, mostly I am where I want to be. Well, except for my image issues.
What I really hope I can still be is a good role model for my beautiful daughter. She is 9 1/2 months old. And she is beautiful. And she is petite. (And, God how I hope she stays that way.)
However, what I want to be is the kind of mother, no - the kind of woman, that she can look up to. A woman who does not have the perfect body, but has the perfect spirit. A woman who knows that she is worth way more than what the beauty magazines would have her believe. A woman who is confidant enough in her abilities to not worry about what anyone else thinks. A woman who can say "fat" and "beautiful" in the same sentence. And mean it.
This is what I want for me. This is what I want for my daughter. This is what I want for ALL of our daughters. We ARE more.
