Having recently celebrated a birthday, I realised I am in the later part of the 50’s… and heading towards 60.
Know what, I like the shape of me !
Society, via ads and other mediums dictates how we should or could look. I am of the generation of abnormally thin models and the frenzy was to possibly fit into a size 0. The fact that a size 0 even exists is actually worrisome. I do see a shift and models look healthier where their weight is concerned. I do see that some fashion creators have also broken the mould in terms of diversifying, they will have all ethnicities, heights, shapes and genders represented, thumbs up to them.
Then comes the topic of what should a 60 year look like. Well, like somebody that is comfortable in their skin, and does exactly as they wish regardless of what others think ! you no longer want to dye your hair, then don’t, that is actually my next step.
Should also let you know that wrinkles are beautiful, they tell a story. Those stories enrich you.
Last but not least, your Mind ! at 60 you know BETTER ! you trust your Gut, the same one that was there all along but that we sometimes chose to defy.
Hopefully this will inspire anyone that sometimes has doubts and please pass on the message to all the beautiful women in your lives
