I was with this chick over the weekend and we went out to a big pasta dinner to celebrate her 46th birthday. There were drinks, delicious food, and laughs until the birthday cake and singing waiters started to make their way to our table. The look on my friend’s face went from happy to bitchy in approximately 30 seconds after seeing that candle filled birthday cake land in front of her face. She blew out the candles and softly whispered under her breath, “I hate this.”
I was a bit shocked at first but than I started to put two in two together. A week prior, she kept asking me if she looked her age? The birthday girl was seriously stressing.
Getting older can really suck but it does not have to ruin your groove. Check out my tips on how to look and feel fresh!
1.) Get your ass to a gym
Save up some cash and buy a few months with a personal trainer. If you are asking your friends if you “look fat,” than you probably have gained some unwanted pounds.
Try out new facial products, your skin type is going to change as you get older so make sure your products are right for you. There is nothing wrong with a little botox or filler either, just don’t go over board.
If you are single and over forty, don’t lose motivation in dating. Getting older should not mean that you turn into the cat lady. You need to stay social and not forget to go out and have fun! Sex is still needed at any age!
Complaining about getting older is not only a sign of being insecure, it is also kinda annoying. Don’t be that chick that talks about getting older as if it is the end of the world. Embrace your age because it is not like you can change anything.
5.) Celebrate your birthday big
If you are all weird about getting older, take the bull by the horn and throw yourself a big party with people that you love. Birthday’s are supposed to be all about you. Make it a day to remember, it will take the edge off of getting older.
