THE ART OF AGEING GRACEFULLY

Advertisements

Think about it, you have EARNED this face.

Every line, a laugh shared.
Every wrinkle, a year survived.
Every age spot, a day that the sun shone on you.

Some women believe that as they age, they LOSE their looks. Oh my friends how wrong this is.
A beautiful young women is a happy accident of nature but a beautiful older woman?
She is a work of art.

The Japanese have a practice whereby they fill any broken objects with gold, believing that something which is broken has earned its beauty and should be celebrated and decorated rather than discarded.

I feel this way about women.

THE ART OF AGEING GRACEFULLYIt took a long time to find out who you really truly are. A long time. The acceptance that old age brings is freeing. It brings with it peace and happiness.
Everyone knows, happiness looks good on us all.

Your body has been changing since the day you were born and will continue till the day you depart. Ride with it, accept it, embrace it. Be amazed by it.

Allow your face to represent your life, your stories, your joys.

Why choose to look like an older woman with a facelift chasing youth, when you could look like an older women who knows what she is worth and has earned every minute of her kick-ass self-acceptance.

THE TRICK WITH AGEING SUCCESSFULLY, IS TO PAY AS LITTLE ATTENTION TO IT AS POSSIBLE.

Ladies, pass it on…
