Aging elegantly! Like a delicate vintage tea cup.

Hi, have been thinking about this off and for days. Thought this morning as I left for my doctor’s appointment., at least I have on a different outfit for today’s appointment. Last week I realized every time I have been to this physician’s office, I end up wearing the same outfit. It is a nice outfit and clean, but always the same top and pants. Pretty pathetic and I intend to change that one of these days soon.

Watching TV in an office this morning I thought,why do women who are aging want to wear their hair long. I don’t mean shoulder length, but long long? If you have an attractive hair style that pulls the hair away from your face and hands which are pushing the hair away from your face every few minutes, then good for you. Watch some of the ladies on TV, even series and note how often they touch their hair. Enough said about that. My opinion only! Someone who keeps her hair short and in a style that causes me the least amount of work.

Rarely do I put on make up any more. Another thing that can be remedied by me. Make up as you age needs to be artfully done. Define! I don’t know that i can but will try. Just thought artfully sounded good. Kidding, kidding. Make up as you age should be tastefully done, not too much. You don’t want the double take look because the makeup is too much. You want the double take look from someone ( man or woman) who says or thinks, now there is very attractive older women.

Tips from an older woman, who has some work to do herself:

  • Dress appropriately. I myself have bought outfits from thrift stores I have received so many compliments on. Don’t put yourself in debt by buying something so expensive you really can’t afford it.
  • Hair hanging down your back. Find a flattering style that does not draw attention to your age. You want to downplay your age.
  • Make up! Moisturizer, a light base, a little color and a draw it altogether lipstick.

My words of wisdom for today! Enjoy yourself. We played Mexican Dominoes here over the weekend. Such a fun game. Plan something fun for each day.

Don’t forget to try an essential oil. There are really some great oils out there.

Aging Gracefully, a life style challenge

Not too long ago I decided to start a tribe on Tailwind, (which I love) and see what would happen. The name of my tribe is -Aging Gracefully, a life style challenge. So far, nothing, but then I am optimistic things will turn around. They always do, maybe not in the time frame I would like. Waiting is hard to do for all of us That brings to mind a gentleman waiting for the elevator, which was not very speedy, so he was banging on the elevator button. Now that was really going to help matters. Patience. Aging is like a kaleidoscope, ever changing.

Just going to talk briefly about when you are in your 20’s and 30’s.

When we are young, we look at the world with a different mirror, believing we would not grow old for a long time. We have lots and lots of time to pattern our lives and maybe we do/did some very foolish things. Think about what needs changing, or what you would like to do differently.

In our 20’s we are trying hard to find a profession, job that will bring us lots of satisfaction and make money. A difficult time, just got out of those teen years, that made you want to tear your hair out at times, now your world is changing. People you thought were friends you do not even see anymore.

In our 30’s we really would like to get married and start our family. Bringing children into the world is an awesome responsibility. It means your focus in life in life changes. Now you are about to become a parent . Another phase of life and all of a sudden a really different world appears. You learn what it means to be pregnant, how to prepare for the new life you are responsible for. What being healthy means. How important it is to work as a team surviving the first 5-6 months of being a parent. Just the start of things to come.

We will continue this discussion later. For right now determine what phase of your life you are at in your 20’s and 30’s. What is not working in your plan of life and how can you change it Your thoughts, your partners thoughts and what needs to change.

Will always find me talking a bit about Young Living Essential Oils and how great they are. Interested in learning more, add a comment and I will get in touch.
