How To Truly Age Gracefully
Aging is a biological reality that all of us share as long as we have the privilege to continue on this earth. And there are numerous benefits to aging. But in our culture, especially for women, aging is big fat negative. It’s associated with all kinds of bad things that we are supposed to “fight.” The language we use when we talk about aging is like we are in a war against nature and time: “Turn- back the clock.” “Try this new anti- aging miracle cream. “Fight wrinkles and sun spots.” And I’d be lying to you if I said that I was completely kumbaya about aging— that I love every dark spot and undereye circle and fine line so much that I want to sing a song about it. Hell, no. It’s especially hard when you’ve made a career in entertainment.
