How to age smartly with Strength, Style, Grace


Hi, Sharon Danley here with another
Two Minute Tip. This week it’s about HELP ! I’m looking and feeling older and I just
don’t want to. Everytime I pass a mirror or window lately I don’t recognize that
older woman in the reflection. Yes we all experience this transition as we age, when we color our hair, when we’re pregnant, have got a bad haircut, and so on and so on and so on. It was ever thus. And when we decide to embrace our gray hair often the transition stage can be difficult if we don’t have an action
plan to refer to. Let’s face it – we’re all getting older – it’s just a fact of life
and it’s the end of the story. Nothing any of us can do will change that. The secret
that many seem to miss however is how you redesign your makeup hairstyle and
ensembles to suit where you are now. Think about it. We don’t keep having babies because they are so adorable. We don’t chase after the
elusive love or hunky men because of magical thinking. We can’t run the 440
and under whatever because our bodies aren’t the same. However, hopefully we are wiser kinder, more compassionate experienced, loving and so
on and so on. My advice from my experience? Package yourself for where
you are now and going forward trying not to look or feel older is a huge waste of
time and energy and you will never succeed at it. Spend this time learning
new hairstyles and redesign your makeup for where your face is now. Practice,
practice, practice, till your new skills are honed and by the time your glorious
gray is fully emerged you’ll have a whole new wonderful you to go with it. Remember that any new skill or refreshed one must
be practiced in order to be well honed and useful and a good skill often looks
easy when in fact it’s just diligent till you get there. Here’s three simple tips that I’d like to share with you from my experience.
#1 – Journal your feelings including both positive and negative
feedback from friends and family and make it a special journal that doesn’t
combine other life experiences. #2 – Resist being hoodwinked by Pinterest prics, products and filtered images and videos that promise the moon and the plethora
of spa and and surgeries that are available with instructions on how to
get the look and to achieve the look this is all magical thinking and it’s
from the beauty industry to sell, sell, sell because it’s money driven that’s the bottom line. #3 – The biggest recommendation of all is while
it’s important to look your best on the outside for a whole host of reasons it
is equally important to make over the internal self to where you are now. While makeup and hairstyling are important I assume most of us certainly
don’t want to spend our day preparing to meet the world with all the issues there
are to be addressed spending our time primping, primping, primping. I want to look great and stay fresh with minimal attention for the entire day. So on this channel – this is what I’m dedicated to. Bottom line? Getting older? Oh you betcha and I
am going to look my best until that last nail goes in the coffin – with or
without makeup. You can still put a good, fresh, vibrant, healthy, compassionate,
likable person forward. Anyway that it for this week ladies.
We’ll see you next time.
