Loving myself at 39

Hello my Beautiful friends! Today is a special post. Today I turned 39 and I couldn’t be more proud of my age. I was born April 6 ,1979 to my Mother Guadalupe. And she’s very much important to this post as I am.  My parents divorced when I was pretty young so my reason of being who I am is because of my mom. Growing up in a single parent home was not always easy, But I have to say it was the best thing for my family. It was a house full of girls. My mom and my 2 sisters. My mom’s priority were her daughters. Nothing else mattered. My mom till this day is single. At times I feel bad for her decision to not date. But I’m also thankful for her decision. My mom is the sweetest person you can meet. I remember as kids we would be in a grocery store and she would smile and wave at someone, My sisters and I would say “do you know them?” her response ” No, but they smiled at me” As a kid I was like how embarrassing. But now I think how wonderful that was. I can go on and on about my mom. I love her more than words can say.

The #1 thing that makes me feel blessed at 39 is, I finally know who I am. I love that I finally feel good with who I am and what I have. I focus on my family and I’m enjoying every minute I have with them. I know from experience and age that once you find happiness with yourself everything else in your life will be just as great. We all have struggles in life, But the most important thing to remember is that we only have one life to live. So make it a good one.

The #2 reason is I finally love all of me. Even my flaws. Our flaws are what make us unique. I don’t walk around with the perfect body, but damn this body gave birth to 2 wonderful kids. So for that I love my body. This body gets things done everyday. I have legs that can get me around, I have arms that allow me to hug my family tight. I have eyes that can see everyday so clear. This body is what makes me me! The importance of self-love is way further than just the outside it’s what’s inside that counts more.

Reason #3 is Confidence. I leave this last because without the other 2 you won’t find it. I didn’t always have the confidence I have now. Growing up I was as shy as they come. I didn’t like to speak up, I didn’t like attention on me. My confidence was pretty low. I was happy with just blending in. Now, I mean I’m not shouting at the roof tops , but if I need to speak up for myself I do. Becoming a mom really boosted up my confidence. I am their protector. I think about my mom she did it alone for 3 girls. I’m lucky I have my fiancé that is so supportive. That gives me the confidence I need. Confidence is not about being better than anyone. It’s about being a strong, kind and loving person. I have the confidence to give a stranger a smile rather than looking down. I have the confidence to stand up for something I don’t think is right. And with that I’m grateful for my age because without the journey to get to 39 I wouldn’t be who I am today.

I hope you all liked this post. I enjoyed writing it very much. Cheers to another year of life! Till next post.

XO Lisa

  1. What a beautiful post, especially the part about finding confidence! I’m 24 and still struggling with that honestly. It’s hard for me to speak up at times and I can be a shy person. Hopefully, it’ll get better as I grow. Thank you for sharing, Lisa! 🙂 ❤
