I remember when I turned 30 years old, and my then husband, gave me 29 red roses and one black rose. That shows you what people program you to think the future will be when you reach a certain age. I think it should have been a gold rose instead, or at least white or blue. But black? Everyone should look upon their birthday as a celebration...........not because they were born that day. But they have survived and lived one more year. Look at all the people you know who did not make it to the age you are right now. Or the ones you don't know! There are even more of them.
No matter what age you are, the sky is the limit!
Nowadays, 60 can look good! We have many products that can hold the aging process off, sometimes indefinitely. Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Moisturizing Treatment is only one of many, many products that are available to help us keep our skin looking young and moist. No, you will not look like a twenty year old, but it will make your skin look fresh and moist. I find dryness is one aging process I have had to deal with. After many years of beautiful skin, it is a never ending battle for me.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
I loved the 60 & Fabulous line of tee shirts and cards I found recently. I may get myself a few of these items to reinforce this way of over powering the thinking that being over a certain age is old. Shoot, you can be old at 25, if you think you are. If I think positive, then good things will happen. If I think negative than it is my own fault. Besides I love the idea of being 60 & Fabulous!
