Short Thought 210 (women aging)

I find it interesting and sometimes perplexing how other women view their own aging. Some years back I was talking to an older woman, who was missing a front tooth. She said the only reason she would get it fixed was so as not to scare children. She acted resigned about her appearance. She said, “If you can’t be the best, why bother at all.” I was too surprised to respond but thinking about it, I know I appreciate it when other women (and men) take care of their appearance, no matter their age.

    While you may not look like Brooke Shields in The Blue Lagoon when you are older, many older women look wonderful and are very attractive. Silly to let yourself go.

    Colette, do your best with what you’ve got is the answer to aging and appearance! I’m “old as dirt” so know all about natural changes (wrinkles & such) over the years! Keep smiling through it! 📚 Christine
