Refuse becoming old – embrace aging

As a women, specially in the western part of the world we are constantly bombarded with tips on how to stay young. I feel a bit sad, as there is nothing wrong with aging. It´s actually a gift, with age comes a matureness, an deeper understanding for others, a love for life and general happier view on life. We should be grateful for every morning we wake up, as it is a true miracle. With that said, you do not have to become old just because you are getting older.

I meet people all the time who are saying – I am to old for that, that is not for me, I am an old woman , old man and so on! If you limit yourself to those thoughts – you are old. It´s all in your mind. If you limit your life and loose your sense of curiosity as well as your willingness to try new things – you will become old.

We are seeing a trend in aging women on the catwalk, grey ambassadors (stop coloring their hair) and much more. All of a sudden it´s actually cool to embrace your aging- I love it! Saying this, you still need to keep your self healthy and even more relevant keep active and care for your body and mind in a different way then you did when you were younger. Learn to love yourself in a new way, give your self the respect you deserve and why not try something different?

Refuse getting old – but embrace aging.

  1. Boo old. There are days I feel old (like 80) and days I feel like I’m 30. In the meantime I’m deep in the teen parenting trenches at 50 and I take one step at a time. Sometimes I fail, sometimes not. But I’m trying to embrace it too, this aging thing. Like we all are. 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing, I am a bit confused myself. One day I feel great and the next I do not. But most of all I try to love the good parts of it and try not to focus on the bad parts.
