I Want to be a Woman of a Certain Age

I want to be a woman of a certain age.
I want to earn my laugh lines. I want to cackle like a madwoman who doesn’t care who’s watching. I want to laugh until I cry or maybe even pee my pants, just a little. I want to find humor in things that only someone who’s seen some things come and go, can find. I want to giggle with children because I’ve learned what they already know; nothing is ever that serious.
I want to be wise. I want to see everything as a lesson. I want to mine every single experience for what they teach me. I want to see the things I couldn’t have seen when I was younger and so focused on myself. I want to settle into the unknown with a childlike excitement because knowing the endings ruins the surprise.
I want to be wild and steady all in the same step. I want to saunter like I know where I’m going, especially when I’ve never been there before. I want to swagger like I’m being watched by every man or woman in the room and own that like a queen. I want to dance and inspire anyone who sees me to dance with me.
I want to be a woman who knows herself and loves what she sees when she looks in the mirror. I want to own my sexiness because I’ve grown out of my insecurities. I want to be grateful for the body that carries my soul. I want to be grateful for my body because she brings me pleasure. I want to share that juiciness as a gift because I’ve had more than enough to share generously.
I want to be a woman who says fuck it often, and hell yes even more often. I want to know life is short and live each moment like it matters. I want to dig for and fight for my desires. I want to be the woman who’s willing to go to the mat for a single moment of joy. I want to know in my bones I’m passed the age of asking for permission.
I want to earn the privilege of growing older by living on purpose and with abandon. I want to savor the sunsets. I want to right, wrongs. I want to fight the good fight and then take a nap. I don’t want to be wise beyond my years. I want be a brilliant star soul that carries the wisdom of many lifetimes.
I want to be a woman of a certain age, and I want to be her now.
