It’s the night before my birthday and I am thinking about turning 39. It’s such a cliché to say that when you are a teenager, or even in your early 20’s you think of 39 being pretty damn old. But now that I am here I can say that it isn’t quite how I envisioned it would be. I mean mentally I kind of feel the same minus the loss of brain capacity that motherhood gifts you, and physically I am quite happy with how I look. I don’t have that many noticeable wrinkles, some light ones on my forehead, and crinkles at the corner of my eyes when I smile but the eye wrinkles are a good thing……the forehead ones can go away though 😉 and even if I am not super happy with my skin (hello acne scars) I have yet to cave and try Botox or fillers.

It floors me when I see all the early 20 somethings getting “preventive” Botox. I have a feeling they are the ones that are going to look way beyond their age as they hit 40 compared to those that accept, and embrace the aging process (or waited until much later to start). I believe it is completely possible to get Botox (and even fillers) in a way where it is subtle and enhances your looks positively, but I find that the younger they start the more they feel they have to do over the years and many women end up looking like a caricature of their former selves by the time they hit their early 30s. You see that a lot on Instagram. Someone you followed for years starts to slowly change their looks and when you compare images from even a couple of years apart they are barely recognizable and most often not is a good way.

I’ve pinned a lot of pins of silver-haired beauties lately, and I have to admit that I think I am going to look great with grey hair. Not to sound conceited or that I am in any rush to see it happen 😉

Today’s post wasn’t really supposed to be about my thoughts on aging but it seems that’s understandably where my head space is. One step closer to 40. Onward and upward. 

*I just noticed that I set the date portion of the URL to this post as 1979 the year of my birth,  instead of 2018. See, I have birthday’s on the mind. I was going to change it, but I think I will leave it.

  1. Happy almost Birthday, Sara. I hope you get to celebrate in style and how you wish. No worries, you look fabulous.

    I always looked younger than my age, by about ten years. My forties were actually my best years looks-wise. I didn’t see strong visible aging signs until I hit fifty. LOL, it’s been downhill since. But I’m grateful nonetheless and my aim is to age with style.

    Again, happy birthday! Cheers, Ardith

    • Thanks Ardith! This made me laugh. One week down and I still feel optimistic, but let’s see how long that last for the queen of pessimism 😉

  2. Happy Birthday!
    And thank you for your thoughts on aging. I couldn’t agree more.
    I hope you have an amazing day!
