SOL Day 29: Reflecting on childhood to adulthood to middle age

Today’s slice is rough.  I have enjoyed writing everyday of this challenge. I have written EVERY DAY of this challenge.   Today is the first day it has been hard to produce.  Partly because of limited time. But I must complete every day of the challenge.  Trying to use today’s inspiration to write. 

Anxious as a child:

Don’t look at me.  Don’t be late. Do I look ok? Am I ok? Do they like me?

Confidence?

This dress is pretty, but can I be?  My hair is stylish, but can I be?

Aging:

Am I still considered attractive at this age?  Are 40 and 50 the new 30/40?  Really?  What’s really important? Youth? Anti-wrinkle? Feeling good?  Looking good? Being satisfied?

Confident!

What is really important? Do I really care what others think?

I am alive!  I am healthy! I laugh and often!  I have a wonderful family and friends!

  1. Real tests each day until you reach “senior hood” . Then things, appearance, other people’s opinion don’t matter much in my opinion😉 I know what you are but what am I?
