I was scrolling through something the other day on the internet and ran across some pictures of actresses of shall we say 'an older age'.
I said to myself... "Man, they are really wearing their age well".
Isn't that want we women want to do? Age well.
But not everyone, I have discovered.
There are those who spend tons of money on all sorts of creams, lotions and potions that promise to get rid of their wrinkles. And, there are those who go the botox route or resort to face lifts.
It's sad when people can't accept who they really are. As we age, we get wrinkles. We sag (in more than one place). Our bones creaks, our bladder leaks. That is simply LIFE. Get over the 'Youth' thing. We are not young anymore. With age comes wisdom, inner beauty and peace.
I have lived a long, long time. My life has been filled with joy, love, children's laughter, and their tears and my own, as well. I've lost those I loved dearly. I've gained an awareness of ME. And, yes, I have wrinkles!
You know what! Those wrinkles represent my life, my struggles, my accomplishments. They say who I am and I will not begrudge one single one of them.
Are you with me, Ladies?
