Weeping and Wailing over Wrinkles...Never! A re-think on aging!

The beautiful words below and image crossed my path today, they touched me and I felt I wanted to share.

In a world that worships youth, disdains the aged...especially women and is horrified at is easy to allow our inner and outer confidence and beauty to be hidden, sometimes so deeply that it can't re-surface.

We often hide our fabulousness, compare ourselves to others, forget to seek role models, regret the passing of our youth, forget to dream and weep and wail over our wrinkles... and forget the value of our wisdom, insights and understandings.  

There has never been a better time to be 50+, for you to fire up your confidence, to recognise that confidence can be a slippery little devil that flows and grows... and look at your ever changing energy with excitement and anticipation.

If you feel yourself wavering in life right now...these beautiful words may add pleasure to your day. The image accompanying portrays pure grace, beauty and quiet confidence. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

10 Commandments for being a Beautiful Ageless Woman

Thou shalt dare to be fabulous.

Thou shalt know that comparing thyself to other women is like comparing a lotus to a rose.

Thou shalt seek out and find those role models of women who accept their aging as their ally!

Thou shalt know that an addiction to youth can only lead to disappointment. Detaching from it opens the pathway to self-acceptance.

Thou shalt know that opening to thy dreams is the way to discover what the universe has in store for thee.

Thou shalt rise above society’s youthful ideal and know that wrinkles and lines add softness and depth of character.

Thou shalt protect thy beauty by allowing purpose and intimacy to be central in thy life.

Thou shalt know that looking great is wonderful, but a rich inner life manifests outwardly as true grace and beauty.

Thou shalt rejoice in uniting with nature, allowing her to season thee with wisdom, insight & understanding. She teaches to accept a design far grander than any of thy dreams.

Thou shalt keep going, going, & going with lightness of being.
