When it comes to stating my age, I'm in the "name it and claim it" camp. However, I do have friends that don't hold with that practice. That's fine. We each get to choose where we fall on that question. What do you think?
Here's my thing: I am grateful for every day, every year. I am thankful for all the experiences I have had—and those yet to come. More and more, I want to celebrate every moment. I want to live gracefully, gratefully and agelessly. So far anyway, each birthday beats the alternative!
Life is not all about youth and beauty. I know it seems that way when we see TV ads or read the cover lines on magazines as we stand at grocery check-out counters. We're given dozens of way to lose weight and look sexy, a myriad of suggestions for creams and lotions to make us look younger and rid ourselves of wrinkles and brown spots, and ideas for makeovers so we don't look old. Mind you, I do want to look as good as is possible—while also being comfortable. No more high heels. No more shoes that pinch. No more short skirts. But still I definitely enjoy stylish clothes and jewelry. It's so much more than that outside package, though, isn't it? It's also about who you and I are on the inside. It's about what we value and how we live and love. It's about our attitudes. And those things have nothing to do with age.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Please share them in the Comments box below. Thank you.
