How Your True Self Will Make You Free and Beautiful

This is all about why I chose the name “Your True Self” for my blog.  And why age doesn’t matter to your true self within.

I am captivated when I see bohemian styles in fashion, decor, parts of the world, and in ourselves.  By that, I mean our inner selves.

One day, I was reading an introduction to boho fashion.  It explained that the bohemian personality not only dressed in a freely creative way, but also was connected to nature and was a free spirit who expressed her true self in words, deeds and surroundings.  Not all bohemians are alike.  They each express their unique personality, tastes and opinions.

I don’t know about you, but I want to have lifelong health for at least 100 years or beyond!  There are plenty of role models in this world letting us know that age doesn’t matter; it doesn’t have to stop movement, exploration, learning, beauty, self-expression.  Your true self is love, it’s wisdom, and it doesn’t stop.

With that in mind, I am presenting links to articles and videos on centenarians and how they made it to age 100 or more. Continue reading “The Secrets of How to Live to 100”

The Freedom of Expressing Your True Self

“It’s this freedom that’s the key to becoming visible again. Not caring what others think is freeing. Expressing yourself any way you want is freeing. Having opinions, emotional wisdom, spiritual understanding…these things free you. And in freedom, we find power.” — quote by Jane Tara from her book The Happy Endings Book Club Continue reading “Link Love: The Secrets of How to Age Gracefully”

Sexy at 60: Your True Self is Ageless

 

Vibrations
Raise your vibration to discover your true self.

The usual advice for women once they hit 40 is all about what not to wear, as if they are suddenly over the hill.  My advice would be to wear whatever you like, that looks good on you, because you don’t lose ‘it’ just because you turned 40 (or 50, 60, 70, etc.).  We don’t all have the same type of body that ages into one that can’t wear short skirts or long hair or one that has to cover up the same parts as everyone else does at the same age.
