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.
