I came across this browsing through the world wide web and I had to chuckle… isn’t this the truth!
We all spend our twenties and thirties trying so hard to be perfect, because we’re so worried about what people will think of us. Then we get into our forties and fifties, and we finally start to be free, because we decide that we don’t give a damn what anyone thinks of us. But you won’t be completely free until you reach your sixties and seventies, when you finally realize this liberating truth—nobody was ever thinking about you anyhow.
I have been thinning out old printed pictures and I was amazed at the photos of me… as long as I can remember after high school I wanted to lose weight… BUT I WAS SKINNY!
Now in my 60’s my goals have absolutely changed. I don’t even own a scale. I just want to feel healthy and for my clothes to fit. I’s sad that I spent so many years worrying about my flaws.
