The truth about aging

Let’s admit it, ladies.

We will never really look as fresh as we did when we were in our early 20’s.

Cellulite starts attacking us as we hit out quarter life crisis and my first forehead wrinkles appeared this year. Now, it’s as if I had them all along.

Sure, with the right outfit and attitude, I can still look hot and sexy. However, it’s time to face the music — I will never look as fresh and young as I did.

All has changed. My girlfriends look similarly tired, marred by years of disappointments and terrible boyfriends. My married friends gained weight after childbirth and kept it.

And yet we delude ourselves into thinking that we’re still as hot as before. “I want a guy who wants me for my brains and personality, and not for my looks,” we scream.

Gimme a break – even Trader who is terrific can also be superficial at times.

Time to face the music. Young at heart doesn’t make us young. But it does mean that we can’t have fun in the aging process.

Have a good week!

About Bonita

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!
