Can we talk for a second? I don’t know about you but I’m tired of people (men, women, society, dogs, etc.) telling us women over 40 what to do. I’m sick of hearing what we’re supposed to look like, act like and dress like. Here’s a newsflash…MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS! I am a grown ass woman and I know what is best for me, so stop! I don’t need your validation, approval or whatever. You can take your judgement, turned up nose and “she’s too old to be wearing that” and stuff it! If you don’t like it, turn away or better yet go work on your life instead of worrying about mine. Being 40, 45 or 65 doesn’t mean we go wait in a corner to shrivel up and die. For many of us (including myself) these years have represented some of the best of our lives. There are empty nesters who are finally able to finish that degree or change their career now that their children are grown. Several of us have found freedom in simply not giving a f**k what others think of us anymore (family is included in this too!). Growing old as a woman is not a death sentence or a signal that life is over. In fact it’s the complete opposite. You and I don’t need to prove this to others because we’re too busy living our best lives!
Have a wonderful weekend!
