“Aging is not lost youth, but a new stage of opportunity and strength!”
I remember being a teenager and feeling frustrated that I couldn’t do things that adults could and that I had rules that I felt were unnecessary! It’s so weird, that I was wishing my life away and wanting to grow up so quickly. Now that I am well into my forties my only regret is that I hadn’t spent my time wishing my years away. Now I value my time, every minute, and I love who I am today.
I no longer focus too much on things that are going to happen, but rather I like to enjoy exactly what is going on in the here and now. I realize how valuable time is and that every wrinkle and smile line is there because of the many experiences and the journey I have been on.
Aging is not for the faint of heart though – it is definitely something that is hard as a woman. I still feel like I am 20 years old, and I want to be able to do all the things I used to be able to do. That’s why staying healthy, staying in shape, taking care of my skin, my body and my mind are vital to me so that on the day that my kids decide to make me a Grandma, I can be the active, cool Grandma 🙂
I look in the mirror sometimes and don’t recognize the person I see. Sometimes I notice more of my flaws and the signs of aging and other times, I truly see what is underneath and recognize my value. As I already said, this getting older thing is something that needs quite a bit of faith and self love.
There are definitely some things about aging that we can’t control, but there are still some things we can do to ensure that we look the best as we’re doing it! I am all in favor of doing things that make you feel good – whether that is great skin care, eating healthy, exercising, relaxation or anything else that tickles your fancy!
Above everything else, no matter what, I know that feeling good about myself makes my inner light shine and that is the best anti-aging thing anyone can do!
Have a blessed Sunday!
