When Less Becomes More

Over the years it's become less about conforming and more about discovering what makes me original.

It's become less about seeking approval from people I respect and more about setting my own goals.

It's become less about the outward appearance of success and more about that inner security with which I'm finally growing comfortable.

It's become less about how I look and more about how I feel.

It's become less about glamorous destinations and more about holding hands with the man I love while we walk through a parking lot.

It's become less about projecting outward confidence and more about understanding those who are in that spot.

I don't need a purple hat or a red hat or even a white hat. I just need some friends who love to laugh and aren't afraid to be silly.

What about you? How have you changed?

It's all better with friends.


  1. My friends and I call it "girl power." I have close friends from as far back as High School and we live in different parts of the globe and we've done different things. Put us together in a room, on the phone, on Skype, etc. it's as if we talked yesterday. It's wonderful.

    1. In addition to friendships like yours, there's something about the power of women, individually and as a group. As a group, the power can come from long-forged friendships—or from a common cause.

      Individually, I think the power lies in one word. Love. We can do whatever we have to do, whenever we have to do it, because we love someone.
