Last week together with a couple of old friends
I went to my favourite café for a chat.
Since we were all at similar ages and had same
interests, I decided to put the question:
“ What do you like most about the ageing process? ”
Not only they really welcomed my question but
they responded immediately and full of enthusiasm.
“ I feel much more comfortable with myself now
and I don’t care what other people think or say “.
“ I am definitely wiser, more experienced, certainly
better financially now, and I can do anything I want
whenever I want it “.
“ I really do feel absolutely free to do as I please,
including letting my hair go grey — after all,
my hair is not who I am “ .
“ Undeniably, I’m much more understanding and
patient with things and people around me “.
They kept on and on and on ………
Ageing is a continuing lifetime process;
it is a very challenging time and it starts at the
point of our birth.
Some people live in constant fear and apprehension
of this deteriorating development, while others
refuse to accept its frightening existence
by camouflaging themselves.
On the positive side, we must recognise that
very important things happen with age like,
financial security, self-confidence and
inner strength, knowledge and experience,
patience, wisdom and self-control.
Also according to surveys, it seems that
the older we grow the happier, more settled
and more peaceful we become.
These days midlife women are reconsidering
their whole approach to life at this stage,
and feeling completely different than all
They now decide to take more risks and be
bold, they desire more knowledge about all
new things, and they really feel joyous and
enthusiastic about experiencing this new and
big chapter in their life.
The secret to intelligent ageing is positive
mental attitude; to always remember
that life is not perfect and understand
that ageing is a blessing.
Here is a list of how many midlife women feel today:
because being sensual and seductive does not
have expiration date.
because they eat healthy, exercise, look after
their skins and follow fashion.
because of all the hard work and experiences
they have been accumulating during the years.
because they are creative, and they love and play
as they wish without caring about anything or
because they appreciate that they live only
once and for a very short time, so life should
be valued and cherished every moment.
because they want to try new things they never
did before and live their own chosen way.
because they realise how important this
is to enable them to stay enthusiastic and
passionate going through the next stages
Tour De Force
It is prejudicial and very damaging to
keep concealing the truth regarding the
real facts about ageing.
We all have to recognise that life is only
temporary and at a cost;
so we should be grateful for our luck to
have been born.
We are very fortunate to be living longer
than ever before and be more healthy.
Older women now want to be noticed, and
they aim for the way they present themselves
to express their confidence, passion and
enthusiasm for life.
They dare to take chances with their whole
They want to feel and look feminine, glamorous,
daring, intelligent, dynamic and fun-loving.
