A wrinkle in time

My life is moving at breakneck speed. I look in the mirror and I see a face I barely recognise. Where did the young, pretty face of my twenty-year-old self go? Now I see a wrinkle here and there, baggy jowls and saggy chin.

However, I am not complaining. This is a better set of circumstances than the alternative, which is obviously death. I breathe, I love, I laugh, I cry, I write, and I talk. I strive, encourage, remonstrate, jump, leap, teach, learn. I make mistakes and I make excellent choices. Every wrinkle on my face tells my life story.

And I wouldn’t want it any other way.

  1. I thank you for saying and feeling the way you do! As many women (and probably men too) must come to terms with what time does to us the best reaction we can have is to accept and appreciate; fighting is a losing battle and a waste of time and energy. Good for you for focusing on the positives! 🌟
