I want to get old. I want to meet my grandbabies and hopefully my great grandbabies too.
It's tough being a woman. We want to look like we did when we were teenagers and be able to lose weight like we did when we were teenagers too. But, to be honest, being a teenager sucked ass. I hated it. I much prefer being in my 30's. I read a great quote from Katherine Lowe the other day:
"Get back in the oven, you're not done yet" - me, to pretty much anyone under the age of 25"
That was the first positive thing I'd read about age in bloody ages. Because we do need cooking. We do need to grow up and make mistakes and mature. Young people can be really annoying. I'd much rather hang out with someone in their 40's than an 18 year old.
So, can't we move past all this now? Can't we idolise the old and look forward to things about being older e.g. retirement. My friend and I plan to go flatting together when our husbands die (Lisa Jarrett, I am talking about you and I hold you to this promise). She's going to do all the cooking and cleaning and I will do all the entertaining. We will have a fab time.
Today, I stumbled upon this great website - advanced style.com.au. It gave me a little boost. I hope I look forward to every single birthday that comes my way. I hope I feel excited about making it to another year older and I hope I dress like a movie star in the process.
Life is Beautiful and I don't want to be sad that I get to live more of it.
