10 years ago when a friend turned 56 and she said … “it was as if from one day to another” all those wrinkles appeared in her face. ￼ Now it’s me! Obviously, wrinkles come from living outdoors, living with feelings, living intensively. We have choices how to deal with aging. Fight it, hate it, accept it, love it￼. Who cares about wrinkles when the world is in war with itself, you might think?
Well, I believe peace starts within. Writing this article reminds me to accept what is and focus on living according to my values, rather than being in the war with parts of myself or living according to the falseness of the system.￼ I don’t want to hide. I don’t want to fake something. Each time, limiting thoughts seem to sabotage my feeling-well, I try not to run away, but face it and consciously choose to address the issue. I want to learn to transform the old stuff that doesn’t serve anymore, not just deny or neglect. Wrinkles are￼ part of this. An opportunity to make a choice to love what is. I was blessed with quite an amazingly healthy body and challenging life situations. Wrinkles are like a memorandum of all lived.
￼Not being Botoxed at 50+ nowadays seems to look like half a crime to what is called beauty, especially if you participate in the game of the photo and film industry. But let’s face it: we don’t always feel great and beautiful with or without Botox, with or without wrinkles, with or without job, professional reputation, money and stuff.
We are frequency and vibration, moving energy – notice, accept, love it….that’s what I try to tell myself as a little reminder￼￼ 🤣❤️🤗🔥💚
Frequency and Vibration￼￼
There are so many tools and things to stay healthy – mentally and physically – They are absolutely useless, if they stay in the toolbox. I am blessed with genes that demand a healthy lifestyle – including quality relationships, fresh air, some kind of meditation practice, daily movement, fresh air and light and expression. If I don’t care, it’s no longer fun.
Motivation and Following Through
For me it is essential to 1st realise what it is and accept it. Then in a second step decide how to deal with it, which choice to make￼￼. Motivation for me stems from my values. The energy to follow through stems from feelings. If I end up feeling numb for too long due to lack of the above, I seem to get stuck and miserable. So for me, feeling what is – good or bad – gives me the juice to act. Denying, distracting or numbing myself purposely, doesn’t work for me. It’s not always fun. But it’s worthwhile living.
Distinction Faking and Fooling
Fake it till you make it is a valid possibility. Fooling myself however by neglecting what is, is not a valid possibility for me. I believe it is important to be very aware of how you feel even if it’s unpleasant. Thinking does not replace feeling. Fooling myself – what I mean here is obsessive positive thinking – doesn’t seem to mobilize the energy that real feelings move.
Botox is a valid possibility. I choose natural beauty. I don’t want to hide any more. I don’t want to fake and fool and try hard to please. I want to face doubts and fears, acknowledging how I feel and respond to situations honesty, only because I believe, that is my job here. But hey, that’s just me. You do what you want!
