Beautiful Women's Month.

Age 3: She looks at herself and sees a Queen.
Age 8: She looks at herself and sees Cinderella.
Age 15: She looks at herself and sees an Ugly Sister.
Age 20: She looks at herself and sees, 'too fat, too thin ,too short, too tall, too straight, too curly'- but decides she's going out anyway.
Age 40: She looks at herself and sees 'clean' and goes out anyway.
Age 50: She looks at herself and sees 'I am' and goes wherever she wants to go.
Age 60: She looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers the world.
Age 70: She looks at herself and sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.
Age 80: Doesn't bother to look.


Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun in the world.
