How Many Do You Remember? Start Counting

  • Age 8: Looks at herself and sees herself as Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty.
  • Age 15: Looks at herself and sees herself as Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty/Cheerleader or if she is PMS’ing, sees Fat/Pimples/UGLY. (“Mom, I can’t go to school looking like this!”)
  • Age 20: Looks at herself and sees too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly. Finds an excuse for not going out at all, misses out on a lot of fun.
  • Age 30: Looks at herself and sees too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly, decides she doesn’t have time to fix it but she’s going out anyway. Has fun.
  • Age 40: Looks at herself and sees too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly but says, “At least I’m clean” and goes anyway. Has a ball.
  • Age 50: Looks at herself and sees “I am” and goes wherever she wants to. Has a blast.
  • Age 60: Looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can’t even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers world.
  • Age 70: Looks at herself, sees wisdom, laughter and ability. Goes out, enjoys life.
  • Age 80: Doesn’t bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with the world.
