It was a sunny spring morning and I decided to go
As I was walking looking at the shops, I could not avoid
noticing how exciting the latest fashion trends were — then
suddenly there it was!
The most interesting skinny trousers I had ever seen together
with a matching lacy top.
“I must try them”, I thought eagerly and I walked into
the shop floor.
After choosing my size I went into the changing room.
I had been humming in the mirror when I heard the
lady next door saying “you really look great; like the
mannequin in the shop window”.
“Thank you” I replied and took the clothes to the till to pay.
As I was walking past the window I looked at the mannequin,
and suddenly it hit me!
I was a middle aged woman dressed like a 25 year old girl.
For a few years now I have been fooling myself like most
modern women do. But although chronologically I am
a middle aged woman, at heart I am still 25; and I refuse
to accept this deceptive artificial term.
According to a study, middle age starts at 55.
But according to a poll among middle-agers it starts at
70 with old age starting at 80.
It is tough and requires change.
Today’s middle aged people are svelte and radiant,
and try to achieve everything they put in their minds
even if it is difficult and persist from beginning to end.
It is most important to remember that age in years is
only a number.
Giovane Per Sempre
In order to influence our physical body to better ageing
we require a holistic approach.
Adopting the following will certainly help.
1) Always try to do what you love.
2) Accept your face and body as they are developing.
3) Recognise your strengths and act accordingly.
4) Have the right mental attitude.
5) Be positive and have humour.
6) Feel liberated and keep moving.
7) Always try to look your best.
8) Continue learning and seek out new experiences.
9) Do not waste time worrying.
10) Eat smart and take vitamins.
11) Sleep and sleep more.
12) Have a younger partner and friends.
Invecchiare Con Grazia
There are times when my body puts a stop on my
youthful enthusiasm; but in general, I still think like
I am in my prime.
We are as old as we feel!!!
