Aging JoyfullyMay 18, 2023
Aging, there's no escape! Might as well LOVE it!!
In a couple of months, I'm going to be 52. It's astounding to me that I've been here on this planet for half a century.
I really love aging emotionally and spiritually. There's something about looking at your arsenal of experiences, and making empowered decisions because of them.
The one thing that has been quite jolting is the SAG of things.
Aging physically, has been quite an experience so far 😵. I honestly can't believe what's happened to my boobs. And, without Botox I am constantly hearing how tired I look. I would much rather look rested than tired when I look in the mirror.
I also started to notice that my lips were thinning and so I got lip injections, and I freaking love them. I'm all about using beauty technologies to enjoy along the way.
To me, my body is a canvas that I get to create on.
It's a very fun experience for me.
As I walk through life, I'm learning the art of acceptance, easier now.
It's difficult to be a woman in a world that focuses solely on physical beauty. I have had to overcome a lot of bullshit thinking.
Do you know what amazes me though? I feel more sexy now than I ever have.
I'm pretty sure it's because I've overcome and accomplished many things. I'm really proud of myself.
I feel confident showing up in the world as my authentic self, lash extensions and all!
At this point I really don't care if people like me or not and that right there, is pretty damn freeing.
I believe that all comes with age.
I have also noticed how settled I feel. I have a sense of peace now that I did not have in my 20s 30s and 40s.
I've gotten really good at the art of letting go, which affords me a much more peaceful life.
I believe this also comes with age.
Another thing that I'm loving is how comfortable I am being married.
Jack and I have worked through some pretty tumultuous experiences together, the last one being my brain injury. That really did something amazing to our connection. Jack is my very best friend and my partner in everything. Let's just say I'm very satisfied in this place. There's not a greater gift I could ask for.
Yep...it came with age!
One of the great things about this life, is that we get to do things the way we want to do them. Isn't that awesome?
You get to do it your way.
So my butt cheeks and boobs might be more saggy than they used to be. Even still, I have to say this aging thing is pretty cool!
And thank God for plastic surgeons that can make this transition a little bit easier. Bahahaha
To me, life is like a really good dessert, it's a celebration of flavor and an explosion of delight. So all I have left to say is, "bon appétit!"
Oh, and for those of you that want to lecture me on, just loving myself without beauty enhancements, save it.
