Someone told me recently that I had changed.
He said that I was no longer the “charming girl” I used to be.
I let that bullshit sink in.
I let it get to me. I did!
Quite deflated, I went home thinking “charm? I thought I had lots of charm?!”
That evening, I got into bed feeling off centre. I looked at the wrinkles around my eyes, my sagging chest, the greys around my temple.
But, sure as the morning sun, I woke up feeling none of the crap from the day before. You see, for me, mornings bring magic. I am focussed and centered at 5am and I take no bullshit.
I walked up to the same mirror that showed me the not-so-charming girl the night before and thought to myself, that person was damn right. I am damn right no longer a “charming girl”. I am now a phenomenal, strong, centered, opinionated, WOMAN. A woman with a vision. A woman with a purpose. A woman with children. A woman with God at the centre. And gosh, if that ain’t “charming”, then who the hell cares?
The girl who had no grey hair, no lines around her eyes was awesome and “charming” for sure, but God sure knows that she was not on fire. The woman in the mirror was on fire!
So, I did my meditation in gratitude, as I always do, and wrote “Today, I am grateful for my continued growth, evolution and powerful centre as a WOMAN on fire”.
Besides, charm is in the eye of the beholder and if the fire is too hot, then a step to the left may not be the worst idea.
