The aging demons are no longer just haunting women over 40. I am finding that more and more women in their 20's and 30's are equally as worried about aging. And, when you really think about it, it's understandable. We are constantly bombarded with the media's obsession with flawless youth and very few can measure up to the airbrushed beauties we see on magazine covers.
How exactly are you supposed to look at any particular age? I don't know about you but I am so tired of hearing back-handed compliments. It doesn't matter how old you are, people say,"you look good for your age"? How are we supposed to interpret that?
Last week Demi Moore who just happens to be 47, but that doesn't matter, said she is finally happy with her body. Isn't that sad? Why hasn't this gorgeous woman, who has always been a knockout, loved the way she looks throughout the years?
It seems the #1 fear of aging is believing that we will lose our sexiness. That we will be less attractive to men. We have been programmed to believe that the male population only loves young women. I am happy to say the Real Cougars have blown that belief sky high. Women in their 40 & 50's are attracting younger men by the truckload these days.
We all know this – aging is inevitable but – how you age is always your choice. Choose wisely.
