I had the distinct pleasure of watching Oprah's Lifeclass last night -- Lesson 7: Aging Beautifully. I felt as if I were in heaven while watching the show. My favorite subject -- Aging! Every second of the show was filled with useful advice and information. The special guests on the show were awesome; Jamie Lee Curtis, Ali McGraw, Super model - Beverly Johnson and Cybill Shephard. They each shared wonderful stories of their own lives and the aging process and all their stories were ones I'm pretty sure someone out there could easily relate to.I was never a woman who tried to hide her age. I felt as if I had no reason to. Oprah says that lying about your age is hazardous to yourself, and yes - I believe it is. You're denying your very existence, she says. Why would anyone want to do that? Seriously! I was always ready to tell mine before the question was even finished being asked. Today at 54 years old, I'm ready to tell it at an even faster rate.
Can you tell that I'm loving the aging process? Well, I really am. I'm much wiser from my life experiences, I'm a happier person than I was years ago, I'm still as vibrant and energetic as I was as a younger woman, all with a brighter and more optimistic outlook on life. Like Oprah says, aging is a blessing, and is easier once you've embraced the wisdom that can only come with getting older.
