My mother says life just begins a forty. I am finally starting to understand what she means. Since my 40th birthday I have cut off all my hair, let go of someone that I love, started writing on my book and developed a new outlook on life. Each day I feel like I am going through a re-birthing process.
I looked at myself in the mirror last night and thought to myself, ” I am finally a grown A woman.”
Below is my short list of how you know when you finally become a grown woman.
You know you're a grown woman ....When you rather buy a quality $250 purse than 10 purses for $25 in different colors.
You know you're a grown woman ... When the bartender asks you for an I.D. and you are no longer flattered by the request.... but instead offended.*
You know you're a grown woman ... When you look in the mirror and you look like a well taken care of and put together 40 year old and NOT a hanging on the thread middle aged woman trying to hold-on to her style and same look as in her 20's.
You know you're a grown woman ...When during intimacy you no longer "fake the funk" with your partner but instead you give instructions and sometimes.... hands-on lessons.
You know you're a grown woman ...When your bra is the most important item in your wardrobe.
You know you're a grown woman ...When at any given moment you can find a comb, bottle of lotion, safety pin, asprin, hand sanitizer, perfume and bible (or journal) in your purse.
You know you're a grown woman ...When someone doesn't pay you back the $20 they owe you and instead of being angry you feel relieved.. because you know that was a very cheap price to "cut them off" for future asks.
You know you're a grown woman ...When you finally like your Ex's wife more than you actually like your Ex.
You know you're a grown woman ...When you actually say NO to things that you don't want to do.
This is my simple list. Please share your “You know when you are a grown woman!” Enjoy life!
