This isn’t meant to be a depressing topic, honestly! I just wanted to create some inspiration to the ladies out there to embrace the beauty that comes later in life, as opposed to fighting against it.
There seems to be such a trend out there to put on a show in regards to our presentation. And as the years set in, that show gets harder and harder to put on! But I can’t help but feel such a sadness when I see a woman working so desperately to change (on the outside, at least) what is happening to her physically.
I’ve recently seen two different ladies at local grocery stores who have chosen the cosmetic surgery path, and it clearly didn’t go well. And it’s terribly sad on my heart, because you can’t help but see straight through to their heart. It’s painfully obvious that the idea of their body moving on ahead was too much for them to bear, and they decided to fight against it. Which makes me conclude that they are very driven by their outward beauty, and how others are judging that beauty. It can become such a sad, frantic circle.
And even if it’s not taken to the level of surgery, there are other age-defying methods we ladies may undertake. Like working ourselves to death in the gym, or even something as simple as wearing clothing styles that are clearly meant for a much younger generation. I’m not saying we can’t buy anything from the Juniors department, but be sure to look upon those clothing selections with clear eyes. Those clothes are designed and meant for the teen/college age, and can just look plain weird when worn on the more, shall we say, seasoned.
We are meant to age… our hair changes, our skin gets tired, and gravity has a field day with our body. It’s a fact. Although we can’t stop it, we can at least embrace it and stay classy in the process. It is perfectly ok to look your age, and it makes the most sense to everyone else when you do. There are scores of beautiful, smart, elegant ladies out there that embrace their golden beauty with pride. They are sensible, classy, and loaded with wisdom. It is these women we want to look to for inspiration, rather than the ones wearing the “Hot Girls Drink Beer” t-shirt at the age of 50.
