Friday Frills

Real women have lines, wrinkles, and flaws.

Each one earned with experience, perseverance and determination.

There’s no computer to airbrush your mistakes.

Let them make you who you are.

Love every mark, every scar and every extra curve you wished to go away.
What you deem as an imperfection is what adds to your unique beauty.

Accept what you can’t learn to love,
Then let go of what you can’t accept.

Treasure them for their memories.

Like a worn love letter or an old family heirloom from generations ago.

Each line and blemish comes with the wisdom only years of life can give.

And life is not to be hidden or covered up.

For life is how a girl grows into a woman
And real women don't conceal their flaws, they proudly embrace it.

It's still Thursday here but couldn't wait to be the first to comment rather than right at the bottom as I usually am ;-)
Lovely post Sam. I love the line "let go of what you can't accept"-something I am having a problem with right now; this line really resonated with me.
TYSM for sharing some food for thought, and also for your lovely comments over at mine for Valentines.
Have a lovely weekend Sweetpea xx

Katie Q. said...

Whoa, I love how her dress in the photo looks almost like wings! :)

This one was so sweet, I love the part about loving yourself and other for their scars and wrinkles. One girl I worked with long ago had large scars all over her face from a car accident as a child and rather than hide then, she was very bold and open about it. (She was one of the sweetest people I've ever known, really outgoing and so caring.)

Lilli said...

Hi Sam! Thanks for your words dear, hope your V-Day went fine! I just have only one wish, that the cold stop soon here, is very freezing!:)) Btw, nice thought you shared here. This friday I feel so well what you wrote:) When I was a teen I was so worried about wrinkles and flaws and I scared to grow and get old:) At my age now is still a problem lol but with the time I've learned to accept the fact we cant do anything for not having them, you just have to accept cause, beyond the fact they say you are "old", they prove that you arent anymore a little girl but a woman with more wisdom and experience! At least always if you live your life everyday and every moment with no regrets! I really dont like old woman who still think to be teen and fear their age, it cause maybe they have some regrets..this is just my wish:) Hope you have a nice day my dearest! Kisses!:*
