Letting Life Lead

Feature #4: It Is Never Too Late To Feel Beautiful, or To Be Courageous (Q and A)

Only a few weeks left to vote for my cousin Tracey who is 51 and is participating in the EM Online Mag Spring Cover shoot on  You can catch up with previous posts in this series:   guest blog, interview, and the very first feature in this series .    Tracey is currently in position five and we are so excited, but there is not a lot of vote distance between the contestants after her!   The contest ends this month and we want to be sure she’s got a shot at the top ten opportunity to model even if she can’t get the popular vote.    She needs your vote to stay in good standing!   Every visitor has twenty votes a day, every day.

Question and Answer

For this special feature, I turn this page over to you readers!   Post a question you would like to ask Tracey in the comments and in a follow up post I will have her answer your inquiries.

Here are a few more beautiful photos to inspire you.

Feeling inspired and want to lend your support?  Vote!

Visit her profile and you can choose to  like, share, and to vote for her and give the other contestants a good race.  You can vote up to twenty times every day until the end of the contest in March.   There are some captcha ads for each vote, but the process is simple.

It takes a lot of courage to try something you've always wanted, but were scared to try for so long.

Be inspired!

Tracey’s personal statement:   I am a 51 year old floral designer. For most of my life I’ve been someone’s daughter, wife, mother, employee. A few years ago, an unexpected, very welcome infusion of confidence and courage led me to modeling for several area photographers, and I’m having a wonderful time! I want to be chosen for the cover of EM because I want everyone to see that a mature, ordinary working woman can be extraordinary with the right attitude and a little confidence.


You are never too old to try something daring; you are never too young to be inspired to take those steps you’ve been afraid to take.  Be inspired; I am.
