At fifty

I am the woman I always dreamed of becoming.

Strong.  Confident.  Serene.

Sometimes, yes, external circumstances can shake me, throw me off balance, upset me.  I am still human.  I feel deeply.  I am connected to life, to the world.

Yet in my core I remain stable and secure.  I know who I am.  I know my value.  I cannot be truly, fundamentally shaken.  I am stable.  I am secure.

Yes, fifty is a pretty good place to be.
