My mother says life just begins a forty.  I am finally starting to understand what she means.  Since my 40th birthday I have cut off all my hair, let go of someone that I love, started writing on my book and developed a new outlook on life.  Each day I feel like I am going through a re-birthing process.  

I looked at myself in the mirror last night and thought to myself, ” I am finally a grown A woman.”  

Below is my short list of how you know when you finally become a grown woman.

You know you're a grown woman ....When you rather buy a quality $250 purse than 10 purses for $25 in different colors.

You know you're a grown woman ... When the bartender asks you for an I.D. and you are no longer flattered by the request.... but instead offended.* happy  

You know you're a grown woman ... When you look in the mirror and you look like a well taken care of and put together 40 year old and NOT a hanging on the thread middle aged woman trying to hold-on to her style and same look as in her 20's.

You know you're a grown woman ...When during intimacy you no longer "fake the funk" with your partner but instead you give instructions and sometimes.... hands-on lessons.

You know you're a grown woman ...When your bra is the most important item in your wardrobe.

You know you're a grown woman ...When at any given moment you can find a comb, bottle of lotion, safety pin, asprin, hand sanitizer, perfume and bible (or journal) in your purse.

You know you're a grown woman ...When someone doesn't pay you back the $20 they owe you and instead of being angry you feel relieved.. because you know that was a very cheap price to "cut them off" for future asks.

You know you're a grown woman ...When you finally like your Ex's wife more than you actually like your Ex.

You know you're a grown woman ...When you actually say NO to things that you don't want to do.

This is my simple list.  Please share your “You know when you are a grown woman!”  Enjoy life!  heartheartheart

      You know you're a grown woman when: Those so called friends who stabbed you in the back, try to resurface and you abilige them.

      You know you're a grown woman when:  you you can pay your own bills and not rely on daddy to do so.

      You know you're a grown woman when: You're ex tries to call you late night for a booty-call but you refuse to accept the call.

      You know you're a grown woman when: You don't have to try to impress others on what you have and how you got it!

    • You know you‘re a grown woman when you can take a deep breath and calmly accept the fact that one of the bimbos your son is dating will eventually become your daughter in law.

      Yeah, I might not be totally grown up yet.

    • You know your a growin woman when your not afraid to admit fault.

      You know your a grown woman when you can ask for help and appreciate the honesty of the answer.

      You know your a grown woman when you stop feeling threaded by your husbands mother and can respectfully tell her ” I got this”

      You know your a grown woman when you finally realize it’s NOT all about you.

      You know your truly a grown woman when you finally LOVE yourself , faults and all.

      Hugs

    • You know you‘re a grown woman when you:

      1. Don’t tolerate nonsense from anyone, especially a man.

      2. Realize you don’t need ‘stroking’ at work. When the boss says “good job,” you say, “naturally.”

      3. Stop buying cheap shoes that hurt because it’s the style and opt for expensive shoes that are comfortable that last.

      4. Learn how to fix anything that breaks in your home than wait for a man to get around to it.

      5. Understand that the only opinion that really means something to you -- is your own.

    • Wow these are all good! And I can relate to them all..... Except Tuliplady’s since I’m not there yet estatic

      I will add:

      You know you are a grown woman when
      You look in the mirror and rejoice in the reflection
      You are confident, know it and show it

    • You know you‘re a grown woman when ...

      You realize there isn’t a need to be right on topics of conversation or win an argument.

      You can have compassion (empathy) with others.  

      You can own your choices without beating yourself up and move on.  

      You can get/be adventurous.  

      The past is the past.
