So this newly 60 year old, (That be me! And omg I’m really this age?!) Had an amazing photo shoot with a very talented ‘female’ photographer yesterday... and we talked.
We talked about women and aging.
I’m now officially past this weird number that I am...
I suffered for a year before my actual 60th Bday.😩total waste of time.
I’m now seeing, all around me, that older woman, like my age, are not anything that society depicts us as...
We’re supposed to be; Not sexy and worn out, used up, tired and desperate...
Scared, reliant, dependent,
in denial, and most of all,
Latched on to what we were in our youth and that we are not that anymore.
Well, I say FK that S**T.
For me, yes I look into my magnifying mirror and watch my Evolution of aging... Sometimes I just turn off the light. Gotta Walk away from the past! I think, if
more older women talk about how our ‘older’ is just as fine and sexy as our ‘younger’ we might just make some headway in this youthful minded world we live in.
And with that said, our worn treads, menopausal wreckage, lines on our faces, veins that pop on our forehand’s, and skin that falls relentlessly all over our bodies, needs to be lovely too! because we have worn it well. Didn’t Rod Stewart write a song called ‘Maggie May’ and ‘You Wear it Well’?
The package we live in at this age has been tossed around and been down the belt a few times...
60 is the new 40 with Relevance!
