Valentine's Day is this weekend and the love is in the air, as well as in my heart! It is time to start looking again.
In the free tabloid, In Your Prime, a February 2009 publication for Pennsylvania/New Jersey 55+ community, two articles regarding finding love after fifty have given me the strength to look beyond my past and towards my future. "A Love Letter to Yourself", by Edie Weinstien-Moser, reminds me that I am to treat myself with the same kind of affection and compassion I would towards another human being. With that, I went through a makeover. I lost a lot of weight, fixed up my hair and makeup, and renewed my spirit.
The other article, "Never Say Never", by Scott Edwards, tells of a woman who has lived a life similar to mine. Her latest breakup was particularly painful because she thought that he was The One. He wasn't, and it caused her to second guess her instincts and question her identity. Well, knock me over with a feather! Those words could have been mine. The heart warming tale takes us through her journey that ends in meeting her "soul mate" at the young age of 64.
Now if that isn't encourgement enough, I have my daughter cheering me on!
And I like who I see in the mirror these days.
So help me out, Friends. I am entering the internet world of senior dating and need a picture that will attract the right man. Which one shall it be? #1 which was taken a week ago, or #2 which was taken a year ago. Of course, you can also choose #3 which is the one yet to be taken.
I'm counting on you...
Picture #3 Yet to be taken
Your vote is important to me.
