Have you ever noticed that there seems to be a constant battle between getting older vs looking old? Then comes the next issue of growing old gracefully vs wanting to be forever young. I have noticed that there is such a fine line that distinguishes the women who wants to maintain some essence of her youthful self and crossing over to the women who wants to be in her late 30's rocking an overly botoxed face.
Then you have society that has a love hate relationship with the young teens trying to look older and the 40 year old's like Jennifer Lopez and so forth who seem to never age. (Anyone who hates on JLo is just jealous in my opinion)
I have always felt that I want to age gracefully, I never picture myself in mom jeans, designer bags under my eyes, teaching my future kids that once they came into my life, so my life ended. But does that mean I am the epitome of shallow? Bart and I seemed to bump heads when the topic came up. But, here's something I don't think guys seem to understand...
A women has to work a tiny bit harder at looking after herself, not only is it her body that changes once she has a kid or even just with age, but she also is meant to fear the idea that if she lets herself go she might not be desirable to her partner. I know confidence comes from inner happiness, but inner happiness comes when you know you are the best you can be. Which is very different from one person to the next. Finding that sweet spot is where you want to be. That's when you become truly confident.
I think we all strive for the point where we look good and feel good. Maybe your feel good vibes comes from being well read or being a master chef or even the girl who just got that yoga pose right that seemed like a distant dream. In the end we all striving for that zsa zsa zsu within ourselves and that is what gives you that amazing confidence. Correct me if I am wrong. I'm just sharing some Monday morning thoughts... Someone bring me some coffee already haha
Well here's a question have you found your confidence sweet spot or are you like me and still on journey of self love?
