Older women

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I have a serious crush on some older women...

emoticon but I do!

I have always looked to the future saying "who inspires me of how I want to look like in the future..." and totally on a superficial level too...

So here are my top two: Reba McEntire and Helen Mirren.

I see them on tv and I just think: boy, these ladies are rockin' it! I wanna be that way when I am older. Reba is really pretty fit for her age (look at her arms - they are nice) and Helen, well, she is just so poised and just "wow." I look forward to seeing how they are dressed at award shows more than the tabloid A-listers!

I don't think I have EVER said anything of "What I wanna look like" on Spark before! LOL I don't post pics of hardbodies as "inspiration"...(good god, if you only know what damage has been wrought on my abdomen from being heavy.. I think I'd be depressed pretty fast if I was putting those hard bodies on a pedestal! I'm just glad to be me!! ... But that is me, and it works for more power to ya!)

And over the last few months....there are some pretty rockin' older ladies here on Spark (and when I say older..I just mean older than me...I am approaching 40 fast, so "older" is just older than me. - please do not take offense) that I have some into contact with and they are pretty darned awesome!!!!

Maybe it's a part of me looking into the future ... assessing where I want to be.. I don't really know if I have done that before or at least not in a long time for me to remember thinking about it, but it is exciting and thrilling and awesome when you really think about it. All that possibility... all that potential!

    I am one of the older women. The funny thing is that it hits you fast and you find that you are older. Yet I am happier than I have been when I was younger and overweight.

    I loved this post! Helen rocks, and I really like seeing her and other actresses that are not 25 get juicy parts!

    Helen Mirren in my hero! When I am the age she is, I hope I am rockin' it like she does!

    Even on my best day 20 years ago I wouldn't have been able to keep up with the activities of some of the 70 yr olds on here!

    Helen Mirren's one of my favorites too! She was gorgeous as a younger woman and is a real role model for growing older gracefully and with tons of style. If I look half as good as she does when I'm her age, I'll be thrilled!

    I admire the previous generations too. I especially don't want to see my decades adding up with medical issues, so it's a good reminder (try) to stay healthy now.

    Know what you mean! At 56, I look at my almost-80 MIL and think, "I wanna be like her when I grow up!"

    Older is definitely a relative term. On Friday I told a woman in my aerobics/weights class that I wanted to be her in 23 years. She's 88! She can't do all the moves and she uses light weights, but she's still at the gym.

    I can so relate. I am approaching 40 too (oh man did I just say that out loud?) and I am trying like heck to age gracefully. Being an overweight old person does not appeal to me. Hmmm I wonder why. P.s. i love Reba. Talk about aging nicely.

    I remember when we weren't supposed to trust anyone over 30, which made us Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 1966. Now that I'm over 60 it's pretty funny. I used to imagine being 60 as 25 with gray hair. Hardly.
