I recently went on a family vacation with my family. It’s definitely a whirlwind of fun, family and crazy chaos, LOL!
I enjoy the kids playing together and being able to have some downtime with my mom and sisters. It’s very rare that we get this opportunity and I soak up every minute of it.
On our last night at the beach, my sisters and I were sitting outside watching the sunset as the kids play, listening to each other’s stories, disagreeing and agreeing with a few as well as enjoying laughter along the way.
I find it funny how we are all so different but yet we are all the same. Thinking and talking about all the typical girl things that we do.
The one that just had me thinking this morning and had me in stitches laughing was how funny we are about aging.
Even my mom who is just gorgeous and has always had great skin. It just amazes me that we are all in our prime and now we discuss this and compare wrinkles. What?!
Yes, wrinkles. Now, you don’t even think about this in your twenties, at least I didn’t.
I will say, when I turned 27 I remember telling Jeffery, “Gosh, we are so close to being 40 now”. Jeffrey looked at me like I was crazy.
Well, see how quickly time flies. Now almost 35, we are definitely closer to hitting 40.
I woke up this morning and looked in the mirror. I was thinking about those sweet memories we shared that weekend and I remember telling my mom after our skin comparison that every wrinkle is worth every smile.
I want to tell you to embrace your age! Enjoy those moments in life that you can say, that wrinkle was important!
Don’t let your age define who you are, let your personality, style, life do this. Age truly is a number and this goes for all of my single friends, friends without kiddos and the friends who have kids, husbands and a crazy busy life.
Look in that mirror and say, I’m going to embrace every wrinkle and love getting older.
Can I be honest with you? I have loved being in my 30’s. Life seems to come a bit easier for me.
I really have embraced who I am and what God has planned or continues to plan for me. So in all honesty, I’m not dreading 40. I’m actually going to jump in and embrace it.
Who knows, God’s plan might be even bigger for this southern stylist by then. So enjoy those times with your family and friends and enjoy laughter, because it is worth every wrinkle.
