This article caught my attention on the site Elephant Journal. It was written by Margaret Aguirre as she shared her thoughts on things every woman should do by the time they’re 40.
It’s a lovely read and I personally feel that the list pertains to us all, even beyond the age of 40. Have a look by clicking the link below.
The quoted paragraph below is one of my favourites on the list that I happen to be a firm believer of. If anyone has read my book Words We Carry, you will know I write about conquering low self-esteem, as told through my own experiences. We don’t have to throw in the towel on looking and feeling good. There is an appropriate attire for any age for us all to feel beautiful. Looking beautiful shouldn’t have to mean we’re trying to look twenty years younger, but making the most of our attributes we’ve earned through the years.
Just because we aren’t 23 anymore doesn’t mean we aren’t beautiful, vivacious and amazing. Glamor changes slightly as we get older. We don’t need to wear the tight spandex mini dress to go out dancing. A sleek, elegant LBD is far sexier and mysterious. With the right amount of makeup and attitude, we can all be glamorous.”
