I hear so many women complain about getting older. Wrinkles, metabolism slowing down, “losing beauty,” etc. I was always scared of this, like once I lose my young spirit/face, my life will be over. I recently had an epiphany about all of this.
Getting older is one of the most under-valued, incredible blessings in life. How many people die a day? Hundreds of thousands probably. Wrinkles mean you’ve smiled, weight gain means you’ve had so much amazing, delicious food, and losing beauty is not even possible if you’re beautiful inside. I believe we radiate our beauty through our soul.
Every day we get the chance to change the world and make it a better place for when we leave. Some people get a year of life, some 15, some 60, and the lucky few 100 or more. Being able to experience a long life filled with giving joy and getting joy sounds like the best present a person could receive.
Even if I don’t live to be a 100, I thank the universe every day for giving me the opportunity to not only live, but thrive and make a difference. I strongly recommend sending up a pray every day for your chance to do the same. Treasure your wrinkles!
