Becoming the best version of yourself

To “Lift” Or Not To “Lift”?

on September 22, 2014

As we age, our skin shows it.    This is NOT a gender issue, but a human issue.  The skin just “ain’t what it used to be”!  The elasticity is gone, collagen isn’t produced like before and things sag.  UGH!!

If you add on top of that the society we live in is constantly telling us we should be thin, and wrinkle free – no matter our age, you want to hide indoors.

Then if heap on top of that the dating game where (sorry dudes) the men are looking at and for those younger women to squire around, it’s no wonder we look tired and old.   We ARE tired and old, LOL!!  OK – so maybe age is a matter of mind but your mirror is not your friend.

Entering my 50’s I remember how clearly my “then” husband felt about plastic surgery.  He always said he would do it if it made him feel and look better.   For my 50th birthday I seriously considered that’s what I should do; I knew he looked at me as “aging” and needing some artificial help in looking better.

Instead he divorced me and just married a “younger” person – problem solved.

Now as I sit here at 61, and see all the plastic around me, it’s easy to wonder the “what if” I had done it at 50?  Or wonder about the “what if” I do it in my 60’s?  Whatever happens, it’s nice to  know you’re not alone in wondering if trying to seek a younger version of yourself – to match the younger self your mind tells you that you still are – is worth it or not.

No judgement from my corner either way, but I did enjoy reading this brief article about another’s feelings.  We’re not alone in at least “wondering”!

  1. I think I prefer hanging out with my wonderful nonjudgmental gal pals!!! (and trust me, most of those “younger” women have been “enhanced” themselves!)

    It does not matter if you are older and have plastic surgery, men still want women who are much younger, without the plastic surgery. They think it , makes them look so much younger…..little do they know… makes them look like their grandfather. They don’t care, they are only looking at the girl, not at themselves. And they are looking at all the men that are looking at their young wives. The only chance a women has is marrying someone who is much older, whom I do not want, or marrying someone much younger who wants your money. ……..Which do you all prefer???
