What do you see when you look in the mirror?
I was just on Facebook and someone posted, “Wait a second? Who replaced me with the old lady in the mirror?” In my opinion, the friend who posted this looks amazing. She is 54, vibrant, funny, smart, attractive and looks great. This brings up a big question. How do you deal with your changing looks? We are all aging. Facts everyone. Sorry. It sure beats the alternative! We are all our own worst critics. I can promise you that no one looks at your wrinkles. They are looking at your smile, your eyes, your energy. Having said that and I am trying to embrace aging (I’m 53), I get some help. Full disclosure, I get botox. I’m saying this because if anyone over the age of 50 who barely has any wrinkles on their forehead or around their eyes tells you they haven’t then they are flat out lying! I like it. I like the way it looks (especially because the person I go to keeps your face moving) and it makes me feel a little better.
I haven’t had any surgery and at this moment in time am terrified of getting cut open and hope that I can “age gracefully” but it is so confusing. Should we all just stop this nonsense and age or is a little help okay as long as we don’t have deeper problems? For the time being, I want to look good FOR MY AGE, not trying to look younger. What do you see when you look in the mirror and what do you do about it?
