Do not complain that in midlife, no-one sees you.
When you are the one hiding.
Behind bland clothes.
An ageing mindset.
Instead, put on a fabulous outfit, a smile and be interested in others.
Be bolder. Braver. Brighter.
Do not complain that you feel irrelevant.
When you bore people with your past ideals and ideas.
Instead, reinvent yourself, often and strong.
Forge new paths for yourself.
Make new friends.
Proactively produce your new life.
Do not complain that your best days are behind you.
For if you believe it so, so will it be.
You will find evidence for whatever you believe.
You forget the agonies of youth, and anyway, how does it help you to thrive in the present if you hanker for the past that is no more.
It's crazy and not very intelligent.
♥️I choose to be visible, relevant and fabulous.
♥️I do not need the rest of society to tell me of my worthiness.
♥️I do not heed how I'm supposed to look and feel at this time of life.
♥️I will not despair at my wrinkles and wish them away.
They just are.
♥️I will not look at my younger counterparts and wish I was at their stage of life.
♥️I will swim in the ocean, with my body exactly as it is. In a bikini. Or preferably without.
♥️I will walk into any room, feeling like I belong there.
Holding my own.
Loving my own presence.
Loving everyone else's.
Do not whine that society dismisses you.
Could it be that you are dismissing yourself?
It's time to live the fabulous way - with lightness, curiosity and a sense of adventure.
Looking fabulous and feeling vibrant - with your wrinkles, imperfections, present-day weight and in clothes that light you up.
It's time to live the fabulous way - where relevance, legacy and impact is not determined by how well you score in youth, size and beauty.
It's time to live the fabulous way - cultivating a mindset that will hold you to your highest standard.
If you're ready to fabify, I'd love you to apply.
Who came up with this crazy idea to ‘age gracefully’?
I couldn’t think of anything worse, personally.
Who the frog wants to age gracefully?
We should be ageing spectacularly.
We should be creating a sensation.
Yelling from the rooftops.
Squealing with glee.
Running headlong into the sea.
Embarrassing our kids.
Dancing on tables.
Eating too much cake.
Tasting all the wine.
Wearing inspiring clothes.
Lighting each other up.
Pulling each other up.
Ageing gracefully to me is a euphemism for looking old but trying to be positive.
Or just as bad - focusing more on health and vitality then wrinkles.
Is this the best we can do?
If we're going to reframe, let's aim for Flipping Fabulous, Wrinkles And All.
Let's focus on Sensational In My Skin, rather than body positive.
Out with the meek words and shrinking worlds.
In with Fabulocity!
