I will admit it: I did not identify most with Ginger Spice. (Who can guess who my spirit Spice Girl was?)
That said, I loved – and really related to – a quote that Geri Horner, mom of two, gave Hello Canada about contentment, and getting over worrying about what others think.
The word I’d use to describe where I am in my life is ‘content’. Before, I was always looking for perfection: an ultimate state of floaty happiness, but that’s not reality. With age has come a gratitude for what I have and a better perspective on what’s important. I used to care so much about what people thought of me, but now I have the confidence to say what I think and feel and if that doesn’t make me everyone’s cup of tea, that’s fine.
