So I was washing my face this evening and was thinking about the creams and moisturizers that I use to help keep my skin clean and healthy. And I was also thinking about the products that I use on occasion that claim to help me keep my skin looking younger.
Then I thought, 'What's wrong with aging?!' Yes, I am aging! I'm not young anymore, although I'm not really, really old yet either. But why do I really care to look younger when I'm not?! So here's my answer, I want to look young because I'm told that I SHOULD want to look young, but the reality is that I'm not.
And somehow I've learned somewhere that it's not really okay to grow older then the age of 29. Why is it not really that okay to age? Does aging, growing old, and wrinkling mean that I'm getting less attractive? Apparently it does to me. Here I am, an aging woman, believing that younger is better and older is to be covered up with creams.
Poor me, things can only go downhill from here! : ( I'm only going to get older. All those products that claim that they'll make me look younger, are just going to keep adding up because I'll need more and more of them to hold back the years!
Here I am with this problem. I'm stuck aging, but I don't want to feel bad about it. I guess I'll have to think differently about my own aging process. So here's my solution to my problem; with aging comes wrinkles, greying, etc. but so too does WISDOM! From now on I'm going to say to myself as many times as it takes, 'Aging is beautiful!!!'
Now that I'm wise...tee hee....I've realized it's better to be happy than being younger, slimmer, or richer. Happiness is the key to living a fulfilled life.
I'm going to start taking my power back baby!
