The Day I saw my Aging Face As Beautiful

I am coming up on my 63rd birthday. Wow! My mornings are a slower start, my beauty routine is almost non existent. I put moisturizer and sunscreen (A tinted BB cream) and some lip gloss. That’s it. My eyes have a hereditary disease, that leaves me red eyed with tiny blisters on the inner eye lids. OUCH. I also have broken blood vessels and another hereditary disease Rosacea.  Gosh! Truth be told I also have quite a bit of facial hair. (Way more since the change of life occurred 12 years ago!)  I realized my inner voice has become very critical of what I see in the mirror.  When I started this ant-aging challenge I wanted to look and feel better. I have added a protein shake and Vivix to my internal regime and meditation and bone density exercises. For the external me I have begun a Shaklee Youth serum (which is flaring my skin up) and I am about to find a NON permanent hair color. I am now on Bio-identical hormone replacement of Testosterone and Progesterone and I am eating more soy products. I definitely have more energy!  Which is a huge change and my ability to move my body in every way has improved. My immune system feels stronger (I went into a hospital to say goodbye to a beloved friend in hospice) which in the past I couldn’t even risk!  So things are moving in the right direction, but I also realized that apart from surgery, I can not expect to look like I did when I was young.  Reality is this is the face I have earned. I also realized that I am a beautiful survivor of a very challenging life. It was at that precise moment that I loved this face. This face has survived more pain and heartache and stress that anyone I have known. This face is still smiling and wanting to help others. This face still loves to be the eyes of Jesus to a hurting world. Red eyes and all. Beauty is accepting and loving yourself just the way you are.  Will I start to wear a bit more makeup? Maybe. Will I color my hair again? Probably. But I am determined to love this woman staring back at me. I am determined to embrace this face and this body that has survived so much. I want to be kind to myself in the morning and welcome this new day coming and be thankful for the changes of energy and strength. If I don’t find anything else on this journey I will have the gift of that!
