Over the summer I had the privilege of attending a workshop led by the most elegant, feminine and authentically powerful woman named Nancy Kline. Being in her presence was a highlight of my life. I mean that sincerely.
Nancy (below in green) has built a career supporting people in thinking for themselves. Her work is profound and meaningful—and something I am deepening in within my life.
In our time together she shared about her latest book called, Living with Time to Think: The Goddaughter Letters. This book is a series of letters she wrote in response to three important questions her goddaughters asked her.
One of the letters touched my heart so deeply (I had tears streaming down my face), I wrote Nancy to see if I could share that letter with YOU. I’m grateful she said yes. Below you’ll find the chapter titled Every Wrinkle.
Here’s a short excerpt:
“I wonder whether you have decided to love every wrinkle, to see each one as a sign of increased beauty. I wonder whether you actually love each one…And I wonder what it would take for the whole world to love them, too.
We need old women to show us how to be beautiful.
I tried out that idea at Cosmopolitan once…”
Slow down. Take in her words and see if they don’t affect your relationship with your body for the better.
