These are not nouns used to describe myself as I sit in front of my computer on a Tuesday night overweight but still snarfing cheese balls while wearing a caftan and fuzzy slippers!
But they are they words to describe two of my heroines. That’s probably not the word I want to use for them, but they have the elusive something I’ve always wanted. I have elan. I also have (on occasion) poise, sophistication and wit. I don’t know that I have ever been truly graceful or elegant, and certainly not a combination thereof for any length of time.
So my new weightloss (and cheese puff free) plan is to simply think about these two whenever I plan to stuff some fattening and/or unhealthy thing into my mouth because I’m bored, tired, lazy or depressed. Or heaven forfend all four at once.
So here’s to Grace and Audrey the personification of ladies I esteem and to what I aspire (with my own twist on things of course).
