• Aging No Matter What

    I’m a huge fan of Vogue, and when I came across their latest beauty video, I became an even bigger fan.

    This article features former 1980’s Supermodel Joan Severance. To be honest, after I end up watching these Vogue beauty videos, I feel a little depressed…because I don’t look like these models. But after watching Joan Severance’s beauty clip, I am inspired.

    I’m inspired by her aging. Her carefree attitude about aging and her flaws. It’s honestly and finally REFRESHING. I wish the beauty industry would embrace this more…the honest aging process and beauty that comes along with it…instead of the constant quest to remain forever 18.

    I don’t know if you have friends that range in a variety of ages, but I actually do. I have friends in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and even 80’s. One of my close friend is 82 years old and used to be in my local book club that I ran. She does not look her age! We would exchange book discussion topics and ideas about plot. I love her wisdom. Her husband is a former Ironman too, and her love of healthy eating and exercise has definitely paid off. Even way before it was a fad…she was already living the healthy lifestyle.  Woman like her inspire me.

    This video sums it up for me:

    Embrace your own imperfections. Most importantly, embrace aging.
