Someone once told me, “a woman owns her face at 40”, at the time I didn’t understand. The loves, the loses, the highs, the lows, the success, the failures, they show. And that is beautiful. It’s not something you can paint on, no matter how you try. That life that shows is divine.
Glamsiren’s mission is to redefine beauty, share stories, and connect women by empowering women to feel bold, beautiful and sexy at every age. We envision our #glamtribe will become a strong and powerful global networking platform. Supporting, sharing and advising our peers while creating real-life role models for little girls everywhere.
In my 46th year, I started to notice changes. Small changes. But changes none the less. Things like reading glasses in restaurants, that ‘get ready for summer diet’ not having the same effect, or suddenly not being able to find a foundation that worked for my skin. Little things. Little things that drive you nuts.
Over the next couple of years, those small changes turned into big changes. And those changes started to affect me. While the physical changes were hard to accept, it was the emotional toll that really hit me. I felt low. Down on myself, and unhappy with my appearance. It was then I realized, just how much the way I looked affected how I feel. Much of my own feelings of self-worth were tied directly to how I saw myself in the mirror. It was then, I promised myself to make a change.
Don’t get me wrong, I knew I had to get myself healthy and back in shape. But I also had to learn to embrace this new me and start to believe that beauty is attainable at every age. It was time to stop looking back on endless pics of myself at 36, embrace my age and take on life again.
Now, as I knock on 50’s door, I am happier and working towards being the best me I can be. It’s a daily grind, but hey, I’m worth it. 🙂
