The Beauties

June 2, 2010

The Art of Aging List

I will age with humor, serenity and to the best of my efforts, health

I will continue to express my creativity and personal style

I will challenge the stuck way our culture looks at getting older

I’ve learned a great deal from the women who have signed up in the past 2 weeks to The Art of Aging Facebook Page.

These women are inspiring and informing my creativity; they are full of hope, spunk and positive energy. And if some of them don’t feel that way so much, they are open to change and support.

I’ve come to think of them as ‘The Beauties’.

Beauties for themselves, wanting health and vitality. Looking for ways to express the ‘pretty’ of the past in the present in ways all their own.

Beauties for the people in their lives, seeking creative ways to share wisdom earned from years of effort and error.

Beauties for lists and lists of reasons.

I’m jazzed and blessed by their friendship, and look forward to trying out The Art of Aging List together.

    What a lovely place to feel vindicated and free to be myself. Like I said before the mistakes of the past are in the past…and I just make new and better mistakes… I like me now and I love this website…don’t ever stop helping us to all feel better about getting older…I can’t wait to start my online school to be a pharmacy assistant. I have always said…I went to all these different “little” schools because I could never figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. Well, I don’t think I will ever grow up…and its ok…its made me who and what I am! I am moving forward and with the Grace of God…I will live to be 100 and still have all my marbles!
