Making Peace With Lines
I had gotten Botox twice in my 30s, after which the third time I did it — I feel I used to be round 40 — I bought this horrible response. I feel it’s as a result of I didn’t know then that Lyme was on board, and my physique couldn’t deal with it. I’ve accepted the undeniable fact that if you happen to’re an expressive particular person, you’re going to have traces and flaws. I have a good time all of it at this level. I’m not going to jeopardize my well being simply so I can freeze some traces.

And I do a complete lot of strolling with my canines.

I used to be addicted to that super-sore, I-can’t-walk-the-next-day feeling. It did me lots of injury. I’m a more-is-more sort of particular person, however my physique is, like, “Sorry, you have to learn moderation.”
I feel everyone has a journey — all of us have edges we’re attempting to comprise — however I feel one in every of the largest classes I’ve discovered is that I’m not people-pleasing anymore. I’ve no downside saying I would like to take a self-care day.
