The trials and tribulations of being 48....

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I don't hide from my is what it is ~ I've earned all of my grey hair, laugh lines and character!
What I'm struggling with is this yo-yo roller coaster ride of my body going through changes. Good grief!
Enough already!!!
You would think that raising 3 children would have provided me with the patience to go through this stage with grace..... hmmmmm.
(apparently not today....) LOL!
Really think I need to go for a good long hike today out in the fresh air to give myself a positive to end the day with.... perfect goal for after work (now I just need to make it through work and the staff meeting!)
This is the perfect day where I would love to play back tape recordings of my friends and colleagues commenting on the progress that I've made to date! A little ego boost to help balance the frumpy mood I'm in!

    If you have your health, you have everything! Be thankful for your health no matter the age...........age is only numerical years, that is it! I liked JohnMartinMiles' remarks about the facelift! So true! emoticon

    I really love what JOHNMARTINMILES posted because it reflects what I feel. I'm 58. Each phase of our life bring changes, some of which we wish it didn't and some of which are amazing. At this stage of my life I have the wrinkles, get tired easier, fight more with the weight but I also feel more free all the time to be myself and not feel I have to conform to what everyone else thinks I should be. I go for comfort instead of style much more and who cares? (although that doesn't mean I want to be a slob!). I have more wisdom and more compassion and understanding. I go after my dreams more than when younger and my life was wrapped up in raising kids. So embrace each phase of your life, the good with the not so good. Celebrate who you are at this stage!

    Accepting your age is the best approach. It fact it is the only one that works. people who don't accept their age end up looking like Hollywood stars with their faces lifted so many times that what you think is a dimple in their chin is actually their navel!

    There is an e-mail and FaceBook post circulating that says "I am proud of my wrinkles. This body has traveled a long road and it hasn't always been paved. We have been over some rough terrain and the wrinkles are reminders of the events on our lives."

    Make Today a Great Day.
