Here I am with a new "Ha" moment...back from Central California, a FAST Trip (1 night, full day, then home) but was able to see my Grandson Cole, Granddaughter Sydney and my daughter and son-in-law. We actually spent the night with them Sunday Night, great family time.
Michael, my husband conducted a Full Day, intense workshop, at AG Source Magazine, owned and operated by my son-in-law Robert Cabrera Jr.
So, I was able to spend the day with my daughter and her hair stylist. I got a complete HAIR makeover and I am so happy with it!!! For some reason my Stylist has not been on his game the last 2 visits so it was actually perfect timing for a change. Out of the area talent, new cut, new color and I had the love & support of my daughter who is so very honest with me when she sees my style starting to go off track. I need all the help I can get and I APPRECIATE her input Very, Very much!
One thing about getting older is the maintenance to look halfway decent. My gosh, as I tell all of the younger women in my life, friends and family; YOU NEED to appreciate what you have right NOW, right this MINUTE.
We can all look in the mirror at any age and find flaws; flaws that NO ONE else sees much less know what you are talking about. If only I knew in my 20's, 30's, 40's and even 50's that my body would slowly start melting before my very eyes day by day. I would have SO honored myself, smiled more as I looked into that mirror and compliment myself on how great I looked. Because you know what? YOU will NEVER look as good as you do TODAY. Everyday takes it tiny little toll and it will steal that perfect figure, and leave that line, and trench those wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, and wherever else nature feels she needs to leave her mark.
Love yourself today, tomorrow, everyday! You are YOUNGER today than you will be TOMORROW, you are more perfect TODAY than You will be tomorrow. In other words, love every minute of how you look. I know this is a very vain posting but guess what? We all have these feelings at some time or another whether you want to talk about it or admit or not, I'm just putting it out there!
As you age, the maintenance is a royal pain in the butt, especially if you are as vain as I am. There's the make up, the lotions, the potions, the hair coloring, the hair cuts, the vitamins, the sleeplessness, and those damn GLASSES, etc. etc...
It's all a pain, I get tired of it sometimes but then again I am NOT willing to let myself go just yet. Don't know if it is really in my DNA to do so, so I will probably keep it up as long as they can make eyeglass lenses strong enough for me to see out of them.
Hope you all have a great evening!
