how do we hold on to beauty?
As I round 40 I realize it is nearly impossible. It seems to me that 40 is a weird in between stage. I remember Oprah talking about how great 40 was...how much even better 50 was...but where does that leave me? The 30's slipped by so fast and unnoticed. I can't figure this age out. I feel like I'm in the wrong spot, wanting to age gracefully, yet not caring for how it is happening. Ageism is a real thing and I am guilty of it myself...to myself. I often feel like I am in the prime of my life. I enjoy my body and the way it looks, as far as 40 goes...then I think of how I can help it age more gracefully. Do we do this by just allowing things to happen? or do we help it along.
I will ponder this...hopefully for not too much longer, because I need an answer quick
