My experience is that women sometimes are their own worst enemies. We are harder on ourselves than anyone around us. If you think you can't do it, you probably can't. Believe in yourself. You will succeed.
I am not fashion conscious. I can honestly say that I've never spent a cent on Vogue, Allure, Cosmopolitan, or any fashion magazine, for that matter. If you ask me the brand name of the blouse or slacks I'm wearing, I would have no idea.
I (Jane) have had 74 years of good, and then good-enough-when-amplified hearing... I feel very grateful for that. But suddenly everything is changing.
