Today’s Reflection

I had always loved to play with my dolls as a little girl. The dolls I had all looked like me because I had a caring mother that fostered my self image when I was just a little girl. All my dolls looked like me. I understand now as I age my life gets better even though I ain’t no celebrity. Hollywood is not for me. The things I most value don’t cost as much and I always think of the people who supported me along the way. I remember my humble beginnings in Brooklyn the place I am from and I take every chance I get to help my mom and my grandma and also my closer relatives out. I friended some of my family on Facebook. I have a budget I have to stick to that I have to be more  consciously aware mostly of what I can and cannot afford. I will focus on getting things that are cute and more affordable or at least on sale.
