Grey hairs? Brittle bones? You’re not alone!Chances are if you’re reading this, you’re starting to feel (or you’ve felt for a while!) that your body isn’t quite what it was in your 20s. From our 30s onwards, it seems our knees start to creak, our skin becomes squishier around our décolletage area and the hairdresser is asking if the greys are in yet – life is not what it used to be that’s for sure! This International Women’s Day, we wanted to give a shout out to the changes we face with every passing decade and help normalise what might otherwise be considered taboo subjects in some circles. It’s not meant to scare anyone off from getting older (it’s a natural part of life and something worth embracing!), but instead, unite us in camaraderie – we’re in this together ladies! So pour yourself a cuppa, sit back and see how many boxes you tick!
Ageing is not something to ashamed of, embarrassed for or saddened by. We become more self-aware and worry less about others’ opinions of us. It’s freeing to feel comfortable in our bodies, to appreciate our minds more and love deeper with our hearts. The rest is just ‘stuff’ that happens as we age, and it’s important to remember in a world of so many things outside of our control, there’s always an element we can control.
