“At 50, everyone has the face he deserves.”
― George Orwell
I’ve written before about my general apathy towards getting older. I don’t see it as a bad thing and find too many attempts of people trying to maintain youth sliding into outright immaturity to be attractive. I also think that the physical pressure on woman to try and appear as young as possible for as long as possible annoying, exhausting, and a foregone conclusion in the battle with the clock and gravity. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t look at the silver streak for and think, “And so it begins,” a little bit.
My 30th birthday is but days away and the aging process has begun! My only complaint (besides my apparently inability to keep my camera orientation at the same setting for more than two photos) is that my genes didn’t put this silver streak front and center like Stacey London. Or Cruella de Vil. Honestly, Mother Nature, do a girl a solid and give her some dramatic impact!
Minion coterie, share! First signs of aging in you, your friends, or your family members that you noticed and why?
