I think there’s a big double standard for young women.

I know I don’t like to be compared to anyone else. I like to be myself and just kind of do the things I do. I feel like as women we get compared to each other a lot. I know I feel uncomfortable being compared to other women younger than I am. When I am compared to a woman my age I will most often welcome the comparison because the woman is my age. I am going to be 38 years old in six days on January 28, 2019. I am looking forward to going out and getting a manicure and a pedicure on my 38th birthday. Younger women have a lot to learn but need to be given the space and the time to learn it. I have things to learn too but I’m open to learning from older women who have things to teach me. There is a lot to be said here. I enjoy cooking and I am going to experiment in the kitchen at home with a variety of recipes to share with my family.
