Reflection by Yasiris Torres

When I was a teenager, I saw 40 as REALLY old.  I wondered as it approached if I would find it hard to accept a number that is traditionally considered a dreaded milestone, but I found myself delighted with it.

When I reflect on the years that I’ve been blessed with, I fully acknowledge that not all have been easy. Some have brought heartbreak and pain.

But every single one of those 40 years have been filled with love. They’ve been brimming over with laughter and happiness.

In the last year I found these amazing group of women from the REB3L community who have shaped my life. I see things differently and now I am starting to take more care of myself. It is so wonderful to surround yourself with positive people who motivate you to be the best you can be and to remember that you have the power to change things. I want to thank those of you who have come into my life and brought nothing but amazing energy to my life. I am feeling that this decade will be the best one  yet!
