As women we are faced with many challenges in life, from finding a way to earn a living, looking after our children, sharing our lives with a partner, being a daughter, sister, aunt, friend, volunteer and so much more. Our lives are busy and there never seems to be enough time to do it all. We are all different with so many challenges and reasons to feel like we cannot keep up with the demands we place on ourselves.
The one thing that we all have in common is our fear of growing old. The thought of finding ourselves as frail little old grey haired ladies has built multi-million dollar industries that have sold us everything we need to fight that deep fear within us. Most of us have fallen into the trap of buying that over prices moisturiser that has been proven to erase our wrinkles and keep us looking young and vibrant ... in other words worthy of being loved and accepted in our youth orientated world.
Yes we buy the hair dye, makeup and latest clothing fashions so that we can measure up to the standards of how everyone else thinks we should look. We try so hard to be beautiful, pretty, ladylike, feminine and sexy, that we often lose our true selves in the never ending battle of not being enough. We wear our protective mask of youth in a bottle to hide who we really are because we feel safe that way for no one will see who we think we are on the inside.
I am not trying to discourage anyone from doing what she can to feel good about herself. I think that a little blush is a girl's best friend. What I am saying is that maybe we have to work on the inside part of who we are as well as on the outside. Maybe our thoughts about who we are needs a make over. Maybe if we accepted our physical limitations, mistakes and failures, it would free us from the trap of self inflicted fear, shame, guilt, and jealousy. Maybe if we learned to accept and love ourselves for who we really are, our outside world would reflect this honesty and our youthful energy would shine through despite the grey hair and age spots.
Maybe growing old is not so much about the aging of the body... maybe it is about how we have filled our minds with self defeating thoughts. This accumulation of personal painful thoughts is breaking down our ability to feel good about ourselves and if we de not feel good on the inside, you can be sure that we won't feel good on the outside. Start to fill your mind with things that you like about yourself and your life instead of focusing on what you are trying to avoid. Start to imagine yourself being happy and begin to practice seeing yourself doing whatever it is that makes you smile. The sad fact is that we waste most of our thoughts on what we do not want instead of on what we want and we wonder why we keep getting what we don't want. One of the basic laws of nature is that what you focus on is what shows up in your life and unless you realise this fact, you just keep getting what you do not want. Start to notice what you are thinking about. Who are you blaming for why your life is not what you want it to be?
