Here I am on the eve of another birthday, a year away from Medicare and certainly ready for Weight Watchers. It's been a hard year but nothing's been nipped and tucked.
In the meantime, Jenn and her 35-something mommy bloggers are playing the self-portrait truthiness game and I took a peek. Here's how the game works: you dare a fellow blogger to take a candid photo, no make-up, let it all hang out, and post online. What I saw were a lot of beautiful faces who don't have a thing to hide. These are cute patooties but somehow they need to be reassured. Ah, youth. Not only are these women cute, they are bright and witty too.
I've decided to play their silly game and give some advice ...
Don't worry about middle age: you'll outgrow it.
I have everything now that I had twenty years ago, except now it's all lower.
--Gypsy Rose Lee
Let me share a few more ...
Just remember, once you're over the hill, you begin to pick up speed.
When it comes to staying young, a mind-lift beats a face-lift any day.
The trick is growing up without growing old.
If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older.
Everyone is the age of their heart.
