As a woman in her 50’s, and a grandmother, people find it hard to believe my age. I’m a social butterfly, and every now and then, you can find me out and about socialising until the wee hours of the morning. Aging is not something I do well. For me personally, mindset has a lot to do with it. Changing your mindset is lot easier said than done. How do you change your mindset so you have a healthier approach to aging? Every time I looked in the mirror, I could see the ravages of time on my face. This didn’t help my mindset. Cosmetic enhancements became the catalyst I needed. When I saw myself more youthful, it naturally gave me a boost, which started to shift my somber mood on aging. That radiated through my interactions with people, my perspective of the world and gave me the motivation to embark on a healthy diet and exercise regime.
Take a look at my before (left) photo below. That photo was taken in 2009. I wasn’t having a great time in my life and it was showing up all over my face. I was aging rapidly. Stress, working long hours, poor diet and health was weighing heavily on all aspects of my life. I was hardly feeling good about myself.
Fast forward to now, and I have more energy and look younger than I did 8 years ago. I started seeing age as something to look forward to. I have more confidence, wisdom and empowerment than ever before. As women in our 50’s, I strongly feel we should be embracing age. I’m not ready to crawl under a rock just yet. Frankly, I don’t think I’ll ever be. I think women in their later years have a lot to share and offer each other and collectively. It’s tough. Physical appearance plays a huge part in our society.

Saving Face – laser genesis and IPL for collagen renewal
It used to be a social faux pas to admit to anything so extravagant as Botox or hair removal to anyone other than the professional wielding the laser, but in an age of Kardashians with ever-changing faces, it’s inevitable that women (and men, to a lesser extent) are coming clean on how they retain their youthful appearance.
