“We, women, are like fine wine and we get better as we age…”
It’s been a while since I put a post in Pt’s corner. As today is International Women’s Day, I thought of writing a blog on women who are on the threshold of 35 and above.
Every woman is unique some find it challenging when they are entering their mid 30’s. Each age has its advantage and limitations. We are entering the best age of our life. We, women, are like fine wine and we get better as we age.
We women have moved on from our childhood, teenage and motherhood. When we are young we strive hard for perfection but as we grow older we recognize that imperfection too is beautiful. Maturity tends to make us more self-confident and find fulfillment in our work, passions and our families. Experience and years of living with integrity help us know that small things can make a big impact. It also helps us know what we believe in.
Most of us find happiness in sacrificing our careers or ambitions for our family and children. When we reach this age and when we look back it’s true we would have built a strong family but we wouldn’t have done anything for ourselves. Grey hairs and stretch marks aren’t ugly. Instead, they remind us of the impactful changes we have gone through. Women keep on evolving from 40 they become friendly, agreeable and responsible. That helps them to go back to their activities and hobbies they once liked in their childhood.
When we get time for ourselves we get a chance to connect to our inner voice. Take time to self reflect and figure out what we want in life. We must love and accept ourselves because it helps us maintain healthy relationships. We have always done everything for others, for a change let us do something that inspires us. We should start living for ourselves and start making decisions for ourselves. Life will get easier. Compromise is important in all relationships and it is healthy if it’s equal on both sides. But if the majority of the time one has to give up our wants and needs. It’s time to revaluate and its time to reassess our values. Worrying always causes anxiety. Once we begin to accept whatever is going to happen to us is for our best our stress levels decrease. Comparing life with others doesn’t help it brings down one’s own self-worth. The only solution is to stop comparing. As a woman matures she realizes that the most powerful tool is active listening and it earns a lot of respect.
Sharing a smile, eating healthy food, doing workouts and being kind to others have a great impact on our lives and on others’ lives too. We tend to have the self-discipline to implement healthy habits that were inconvenient a few years earlier. We must be our best selves. So it’s important to stay focused on self-care and self-improvement. Pleasure must become a part of our daily life because we get to realize, the full power of decision making. Each one has their own identity, so living an authentic life and making an impact is the biggest priority.
