If you’re a Baby Boomer, aging is probably on your mind.
Aging gracefully is a horse of a different color.
Literally. Because it means something different for everyone.
Some people believe that aging well requires cosmetic enhancements or surgery.
Women’s magazines are filled with ads and articles about fillers, procedures
and surgeries that make women look like identical cyborgs.
That scares me.
I’ve blogged about this before, HERE
And then there are women who go natural all the way.
Aging gracefully means aging naturally, at least in their lives.
I’ve written about them, too, HERE
And of course, some of the more famous women
who are beautiful in old age,
whose naturally aging looks are models for the rest of us—
and I’ve blogged about them HERE.
But when I thought about aging gracefully
and what it means to me,
it had nothing to do with how I looked
and everything to do with how I accept the changes in my life that
and will continue to come
as I age.
To accept with grace limitations
that I can not do anything about.
Rather than rewrite that and because I feel so strongly about it,
click on my post from two months ago, HERE
and let me know what you think about this definition of aging gracefully
–which departs from the norm.
And blessings to you as you age.
In fact, blessings to us all.
