AGE HOWEVER YOU LIKE

AGE HOWEVER YOU LIKE
I mean, you do you.
If you want to pull and tweak and tighten and brighten.
Go for it.
Why not?
Is it making you happy?
Good, life is short.
Take the happiness wherever it appears.

But…

If that doesn’t make you happy and you seek another way.
You could just age my friend.

Find a role model, be inspired and let it all go – the way it wants to.
Assuming that if you are on this pathway, you realise, looking after yourself is pretty vital for a great life.

But as for the aesthetics?

Ageing looks good on anyone who believes that it does.
It’s an inner light kind of deal.
It shines through skin, bone, muscle and sinew – bathing everything you see in a luminous glow of peace, acceptance and utter loveliness.

It’s some sort of chemical reaction when self-love (at last) meets Mother Nature. Then wisdom and hindsight all join together too and cast their magic until what you see is a woman who has evolved, grown, learned and risen many many times.

And it’s a beautiful sight to behold.

So, age however you like because if something is not making you happy, that will show. And you owe nothing, NOTHING, to the eyes who judge.

Time can’t erase your beauty my friend, only negativity can do that.
