I loved this blog, especially this part:

When we try too hard to hang onto what we once were, it shows, and it looks tense, uptight and unnatural. When we relax and come to acceptance, it also shows, and it looks more confident and attractive, no matter what your age.

I had recently heard a quote from a 45-year-old model that nothing ages more poorly than the ego of a pretty woman.

The operative word here is "ego." Having encountered the work of Eckhart Tolle over the past few years, I have finally come to understand the difference between the ego and Who I Really Am. This body, this face, the ego, everything around me is form and is destined to fade away. Unfortunately, we have been conditioned to believe that this is sad and ugly. The cosmetics industry is laughing all the way to the bank.

If we believe that we are doing all we can to keep our bodies healthy, then we need to accept that we will not always look like we are 21. Life just does not work that way. Why? Who knows. It just doesn't, and the sooner we accept that, the happier we will be. Yes, I agree, acceptance is the key.

Thanks Christine! Yes, I've been learning the same thing about ego and who I really am from Tolle and also Dyer. It really does take time to come to an acceptance, and living in tune with your higher nature.
