The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

Katherine Ann Moss is an English model and businesswoman who took over the industry when she was just 14 years old. Her 31 years in the limelight have been as scandalous as she is beautiful. Take a look at the Kate Moss you won’t read about in the magazines.

Kate never takes a selfie! She even has a private Instagram account she keeps secret. Her motto has always been: “Never complain, never explain.”

What’s On The Menu?

Ever wondered what a supermodel eats to keep herself looking nothing less than flawless? Kate’s thoughts on eating healthy: “Food is really important…I do good breakfasts- eggs are my forte.” But it wasn’t always that way for Kate. “When I was young I was so low maintenance I didn’t have to worry.”



Golden Rules

Kate revealed in an interview her makeup rituals and rules. “I haven’t got the time or the inclination to sit there for ages, putting creams on my face…I’ve been to bed in my makeup on occasions but I wouldn’t make a habit of it…It’s not a good look.” Straight from the queen’s mouth to our ears!


Jelly & The Telly

Queen Kate talked openly in an interview about what she does while watching television. “I’ll sometimes do those gorgeous sheet masks while watching telly…Like a good girl, in bed, with my face mask on for work.” Quite the professional multi-tasker! Just a day in the life for a model. 



Little Lila

The passion for fashion most definitely runs in the Moss family. Kate’s daughter Lila Grace at just age 7 expressed her love for the film “The Devil Wears Prada.” 


Poor Taste

Take it from the top model herself: never mix silver and gold. Kate thinks that it’s a sign of poor taste to wear both silver and gold. And in the fashion world, what Kate Moss says is the golden rule.



Wide-Eyed Waif

Kate broke into the modeling scene during a time when it was dominated by curvy supermodels. She created a niche for herself with her delicate beauty, small frame, and size zero figure that the world hadn’t seen before on the cover of magazines. It’s a testament to feminine beauty in all its shapes and sizes.


Childhood Years

So I sent him a video…I don’t know if he got it.”

Aging With Grace

Not that the petite, size zero model needs to worry about her weight, as she got older Kate learned to take care of her health and body. “I’ve never been a gym bunny…I was always, like, ‘UGH,’…but now I’m really quite into it….I honestly lost an inch off my waist in about 10 days.”



Words of Wisdom

Cara Delevingne has become a worldwide success similarly to the way Kate Moss did when she first broke into the fashion world. In the early days of her career, Cara revealed that she faced really difficult challenges. Cara said, “I never felt like I was good enough, that I deserved success…Kate Moss saved me- stepped in and picked me up off the floor at a stressful time.”


Living By Her Own Rules


via imgur


From the time she was little Kate has always lived by her own rules. In an interview, she revealed why she doesn’t do social media. “I’ve never really liked it- that whole thing of ‘look at me!’. For me, the more privacy the better, not telling people where I am and what I’m doing. All that is the opposite of what I want to do.”



Controversial Comment


via imgur


Kate’s bold statement that ‘nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,’ has caused quite the controversy even a decade later. Since then, however, she has retracted the quote. Now at 44 years old, she admitted in an interview with NBC that she regrets saying it and doesn’t believe in it. She is happy to see the fashion industry embracing diversity.


Fairy Godmother

Kate is godmother to Jude Law and Sadie Frost’s daughter, Iris Law. When asked in an interview with W Magazine if Kate gives Iris modeling advice, she said, “I don’t really chat with Kate about modeling. When I see her, it’s just nice to see her and chat. I tell her what’s going on.”

Who Is She?

Kate’s low-key, carefree, wild-child attitude only adds to her mysterious charm. The world loves Kate partly because they feel they don’t know her. It is a surprise in this day and age with the world knowing every little thing about celebrities that Kate has kept herself aloof. As a very private person, Kate has remained an enigmatic figure for the world to try to figure out.
