10 things I love about ageing

The message I receive the most is from women about to turn 50. They are scared, sad, depressed, stressed and confused as to what they should wear and how they should change their appearance. They are lost and don’t want to age.

In answer to those lovely ladies, here are 10 things I love about ageing.

I am not dead. Seems obvious, but lets celebrate every day our hearts beat and our lungs fill easily with air to keep our bodies saturated with the invisible wonder that is oxygen.
Laughter. The longer I live, the more laughter lines I gain to remember each shared giggle and smile.
Silver hair. Having spent 35 years hiding my sparkles, I am thrilled to set them free. Jeez, what was I thinking colouring this head of perfection?
High heels – goodbye! Gone are the days of burning feet and noisy heels. Embracing flats & sneakers, has made my old feet incredibly happy.
Underwired bras – Farewell! My boobs are no longer constrained in a metal cage which restricts my breathing. My boobs are happy in a stretchy lace bra and girl…they feel free! Wear your boobs as high or as low as you like, whatever makes them happy.
Just relax. I have learned that stressing does not make anything better. If you are still alive and nobody else died, you are good to go and ready for the day.
Feeling funky. Wear what the heck you like. Who cares what anyone else thinks..? Not me!
How much makeup? Wear makeup, don’t wear makeup. Do what makes you feel confident and happy. It’s your face!!! Do what you want with it.
Self care. Having always put others first, I now understand why it’s important to take time to look after your body and soul. Nobody cares about your body as much as you should.
Self love. I now truly love my stretch marks, cellulite, peach fuzz face, wobbly bits and (most of all) each and every one of my scars, which is a memory of when my body battled to defend and preserve my precious life.

To summarise: Ageing rocks. Dying sucks.
Living a kind, happy life, empowering and helping others each and every day will bring you joy.
