OLD is a perfectly good word.
At a certain point we are old, but can still be beautiful.
It has far less to do with Botox and plastic surgery,
than with personality, style and courage...*
In my own head, I've claimed the title OLD since I crossed the half-century mark. Just as Kubler-Ross brought the word 'death' out of the closet; it is time we bring the word OLD out of the closet. As a woman who has now crossed the threshold into her 7th decade, I am amazed to find myself enjoying life more than ever having reached a new plateau of feeling vibrant, passionate and peaceful with who I am -- all of who I am -- the good, bad and ugly.
There is a saying: “We teach what we need to learn.” What I find most difficult about my own aging process is the incongruence of how I experience myself with how the world sees me. Thus the birth of OldBoldandBeautiful.Life as a vehicle to travel along on this aging journey into greater awareness and congruency. I do hope you will travel along.
Till next time....Blair
