Why I Embrace Getting Older: Birthday Post!

Wrinkles?  Jiggly bum? The inability to pull an all-nighter? Bring it on. I completely welcome all of the attributes of getting older. Today I celebrate twenty-six years of my magical life. And while I have learned so much these years, I wanted to write about why people (women specifically), should embrace getting older.

In a world where physical beauty holds more importance over inner beauty (no thanks to social media), I witness too many of my girlfriends desperately trying to avoid aging. Ladies, YOU ARE GOING TO AGE. Yes, moisturizing and exercise will definitely prevent you from aging faster but – you will age! I say, relax and accept it for what it is. Age gracefully, and not in a panic at twenty-five. Plus, I’m sure all that stress and worry about aging isn’t helping!

So, why do I embrace getting older? For starters, I get to learn new things about myself each year. I find I surprise myself more the older I get, in the best way possible. I’m sure this rings true for many of you as well. I think the relationship you have with yourself is the most important, so it’s a beautiful thing when you understand that relationship even better.

Wrinkles are attractive! Yes, I said it. Those laugh lines you have? It shows that you’re the type of person that smiles a lot, and hey, that’s beautiful if you ask me.

I care less about what others think. This might be my favourite one. I no longer care about what everyone else around me thinks. Understanding that my physical appearance does not result in how valued I feel in society. I no longer try to fit a standard. And let me tell you, it’s so refreshing.

Important people come into perspective. It’s really clear who is there for me when I need support. As we age, our groups tend to get smaller. This is such a time saver as I tend to put all of my energy into those who are in my life, so it’s really wonderful to spend that love on people who truly want to be around.

I can pass on what I’ve learned to others. I think it’s really important to share the love. If I’ve experienced something and I can provide advice to someone going through a similar situation, I’ll try to help as best as I can. Getting older means more experiences, life lessons, and overcoming more barriers. Share those experiences with others!

Feeling grateful. I may be getting older, but I’m healthy and alive.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that we (as women) need to re-evaluate our priorities. Working on our souls should come before botox. A birthday should be CELEBRATED as another year of life, instead of another number.

Do any of you feel this way, or am I crazy? Weigh in below in the comments section. I’d love to know!

Anyway, even if it’s my birthday I still have work and lectures 🙁 But, I’m really excited to try an incredible Sushi restaurant tonight with the Boyfriend. I think I’m going to post my first InstaStory this evening so if you’re not following me on Insta, follow me here, and join the fun!
