I am now in my 40’s and every day I find myself looking in the mirror and discovering an additional line, age spot or blemish.
At some point I am going to need to stop trying to cheat old age and embrace the fact that it’s OK to look older and actually you can be old and beautiful. But is that time now?
At the clinic I can have botox anytime I like. And believe me I have had more than my share over the years to my mirrors delight. But the battle is getting harder to win.
Take my grey hair. I used to be able to go weeks between hair dye’s. Now it feels like days. So when is it OK to say enough is enough and embrace the fact that I can’t look 30 again?
Here’s my biggest barrier to old age acceptance. My husband. He doesn’t have a grey hair on his head, and when he does he’s just going to look distinguished. It’s really just not fair.
Please god, one day soon I will be grey, wrinkled and hopefully happy. However today is not that day. Sorry.
