When I was younger I constantly compared myself with other women it drastically affected my confidence. Now that I am older and wiser (LOL!), I realize comparison is a thief and it’s important for all women to understand that we are all unique and special in our own way.
My greatest life motivations are my children. “My children have taught me never to give up and to always feel young and beautiful”.
Some major life changes I went through enabled me to see how awesome I am, as an immigrant regardless of how difficult things were I was able to accomplish my goals.
Menopause was another challenging phase but I am grateful for the plot twist as I get to be in my first photo shoot that could get me on the front page of a magazine.
This opportunity has given me a whole lot of confidence about my age and made me comfortable in my skin. When I was younger I constantly compared myself with other women it drastically affected my confidence. Now that I am older and wiser (LOL!), I realize comparison is a thief and it’s important for all women to understand that we are all unique and special in our own way. Embrace who you are, you are beautiful in your own way.
This phase is an exciting one as I get to enjoy life with my husband as a couple again. Since becoming empty nesters, my husband and I have decided to enjoy ourselves by travelling the world together.
“Beauty is not in the face or how your body looks, beauty is the light that is inside your heart”
Overall it’s important to note that everyone has imperfections, it’s how we embrace them that makes us confident.
This is my first experience with professional photography, of course I was nervous at first as I was worried on how to pose and what to expect but the photographer made me feel confident and taught me to have fun with the shoot.
At the end of the shoot, I really enjoyed being photographed it was a very uplifting moment in my life and I hope that women see my photos and feel that it is never too late to feel beautiful.
When I look at those photos I see a strong beautiful woman I think that every women in their 50+ years needs to experience this. Not only does it lift your spirit but it also lifts your self esteem. Women need to be reminded to show their beauty and understand that age does not define you.
