I was not born with blue eyes. I got blue eyes when I was age 30 or age 31.

Sometimes I think that the blue eyes I got at thirty can be put over my past including my childhood but that’s difficult because I was not born with blue eyes. I just somehow got blue eyes when I turned age 30. In my 30s it’s so easy to talk about things like blue eyes because I have become myself. I am so comfortable in my own shoes at age 36. I recently turned thirty-six years old. I have four more years before my 40th birthday. My 30s are awesome because of self acceptance and self love. I don’t treat myself the way other people treat me. I think of myself as just as good and just as important as anyone else. I believe God created me with my skin color, my eye color, my body and my brain. I don’t want to be anyone else. I love being Ayesha! I want to be Miss Ayesha and become a teacher at an Early Childhood school like Kiddie Academy where I am observing a regular developing 5 year old girl that I call Aliyah. Her real name begins with an A too like mine.
