Being female in a particular time in history, I feel, has everything to do with who we become in our lifetime. I know that many like to think that the key to success is in our minds, and that all it takes to make it in this world is grit, fearlessness, and ambition. That statement is partly true. The other half, which many people fail to see is, we live in a world where rules and ideas are implemented on behalf of us by those who sometimes don’t have our best interest at heart, or who simply don’t know who we are and therefore don’t know what we truly need and want as women. So many of us hang on to someone else’s idea of who we should be, especially when we hit our 50’s. Suddenly the media begins to dictate all the things 50 year-olds need to say away from.
*Don’t use glitter eye shadow after 50!*
If I want to wear GLITTER EYE SHADOW at 60 or 70 or 80 it’s my business. I want to experience Rhianna’s Fenty Fabulousness too!
Why must I make myself small to make you feel comfortable?
With the exception of celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, and Angela Bassett, the rest of us become invisible sometime in our forties. What I mean by invisible is, we begin to see less versions of ourselves in the media. A lot of folks (women too) seem much more interested in following the lives of the Hadid and Kardashian sisters. No one cares about the wise and experienced middle aged YouTuber. When you get to be my age, it begins to feel like you’re living in an alternate universe. Where all the less experienced people are ruling the world. Oh boy, yeah, let’s not get into that right here.
I believe beauty is in the heart the way “Groove is in the Heart”.
You’re only invisible if you think you should be invisible.
Share your beauty!
