“What prize is earned from having youthful, balanced hormones, a clean-machine body, expanded emotions and a conscious connection to one’s “true self”? It is having a special form of radiance permeate and expand you. This radiance exudes an energy that is magnetic. You shine, sizzle, entice and seduce. Regardless of your weight, body type, profession or marital status, people will be drawn to you, court you and vie for your attention. I call this integrated state ‘Feminine Radiance.'” – Dr. Prudence Hall
As a member of the Facebook group, Forever Fierce: The Midlife Revolution, I recently traveled to New York City to meet fellow bloggers at a style event hosted by Chico’s. Each of us received a goody bag from our host, containing the following products: a Luna Stretch Reversible Bracelet from Chico’s, a charcoal masque by Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven, day and night cream by Simply Venom, and the book Radiant Again & Forever by Prudence Hall, M.D.
I have just finished the book, and feel that it is important to let you know about the holistic ways that Dr. Hall has found to reverse the aging process at a cellular level. She treats the whole person — body, mind and spirit. Once you achieve that, age doesn’t matter; it’s just a number. Life only gets better.
Yesterday, I was wishing my cousin a happy birthday despite the fact that her mother had just died. She replied, “I’m glad we’re still having them.” We want to still have them for a long time to come, and we want them to be healthy and happy too.
In a “Natural Awakenings” magazine article entitled Ageless Being: Staying Vibrant in Mind, Body and Spirit by Kathleen Barnes, the author begins with quotes by Christiane Northrup, M.D. She is a leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness, which includes the unity of mind, body, emotions and spirit. Dr. Northrup often says, “Don’t tell anyone how old you are. Another birthday means nothing.” As I always say, age doesn’t matter! So I’d like to explore here what we can do to live a long, fulfilling life.
A brilliant article in appreciation of aging appears in the September 2017 issue of Allure magazine written by Editor-in-Chief Michelle Lee. It’s a must-read! Lee has already said it all, but as I always say “Age Doesn’t Matter!” Get an issue today and add her article to your inspiration board. Everything she says is important, but I will try to give you some key ideas here:
When we use the term “anti-aging,” whether we know it or not, we’re subtly reinforcing the message that aging is a condition we need to battle.
If there’s one inevitability in life, it’s that we’re getting older. Allure produced a video recently that featured 64-year-old gray-haired Jo Johnson, who declared that aging should be appreciated because “some of us don’t get an opportunity to age.” Growing older is a wonderful thing because it means that we get a chance, every day, to live a full and happy life.
Together we can start to change the conversation and celebrate the beauty in all ages.
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. Continue reading “How Your True Self Will Make You Free and Beautiful”→
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.
“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 ClubContinue reading “Link Love: The Secrets of How to Age Gracefully”→
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.
