Welcome to Age of Surprise.
This blog is designed for women who are not looking for ways to look younger, feel younger or be younger simply to be, look and feel better.
When I hit menopause I found little information about aging gracefully. I wanted to just find things that made me appreciate the aging process versus fearing it. I wanted the truth and to be able to laugh at some of the unexpected results of getting older. (Am I really the only woman who keeps tissue between her boobs to soak up sweat in between hot flashes?)
I don’t recall my mother ever discussing the neck hairs that appear seemingly overnight. Had that been part of my birds and bees discussion, perhaps I would have appreciated my teenage years a bit more. When my 20 something daughter complains about her body I tell her to, “Zip it and enjoy your working relationship with gravity!”
I hope you’ll join in on the discussion about the beauty of aging in all of it’s perfect imperfections. What we tend to forget is that one of the gifts of aging is that when the body starts to shift, so do our priorities and you just don’t sweat the small stuff.
Let’s engage in great conversation and share poignant stories. Let’s toast to embracing our age, dismissing media (who seems to dismiss this age group) and laugh….a lot!
Invite your friends to join along, the more the merrier!
I look forward to hearing from you.
