Aging gracefully

Beauty, they say, is in the eyes of the beholder, but sometimes our eyes have ways of lying to us. My mom once told me “we only get physically old, but the heart, soul, and mind stay young.” Yes, we could condition our mind and body to maintain a semblance of what we once were,but we need to tell our eyes to be honest.

For the only way to resolve a problem is to know what the problem is. If not, then we would forever remain in a wonderland of lies.  When people ask me what my beauty secret is–truth is there is no secret–it’s just that I am aware that certain changes do come with age. It’s a fact that people hate change, I did and so does everyone I know. However, change is inevitable. If you kept fighting change to maintain who you were 20 years ago, then you will eventually discover that the girl you were 20 years ago has already disappeared. You cannot bring that person back,but you can always recreate the person you are now–into someone better.

You don’t need to undergo a lot of invasive procedures to achieve that, but then again-why not if you have the means. However, why spend a lot of money if you could do it the natural way or better put, the most cost-effective way. I may not be the best person to consult when it comes to love and relationship, but I guess I don’t need to prove that I could be an authority on how to maintain a woman’s beauty.

So, let me start by saying this–one Imageof the things I’ve noticed with women especially those who are already married and have a kid or two is that they tend to forget that beyond the different roles we have in our lives is the core of who we are–a woman. So, we tend to forsake that person who needs to be pampered every now and then. You might say you don’t have enough money to spend on that. Well, money is not an issue because I can tell you one thing, you don’t need to go to the salon to make yourself beautiful. I, for one, don’t go to there except when I need a hair cut. Of course, you will still need to spend some–for nothing in this world comes free anymore.

In my upcoming blogs, I will be discussing ways and means on how to age gracefully. For now, let me end this by saying to all those women out there, “We are NOT commodities, but if we are–then we should learn to take better care of ourselves the moment we get sold–for you’ll never know when your “owner” will go for someone better. Spending a little amount of money beats the hundred of thousands you’ll spend when it’s way too late. Do it now– I know you can! Just bear in mind that advises would only work and be useful if you see the need to apply them in your life. Ciao! ~~
