celebrate the years

So, I was watching Oprah the other day. She was talking to 'old' supermodels such as Cheryl Tiegs, Beverly Johnson, and Stephanie Seymour. Paulina Porizkova, who is one of my fave models from the eighties, had this to say: "Nothing ages as badly as a beautiful woman's ego". So true, but also quite sad. I mean, look at this woman below. One can see she was attractive as a girl, but I think she's just as beautiful as an older woman with her grey hair, red lips, and youthful, yet elegant outfit.

I really wish more of us would embrace the years that are given to us, and not bemoan every birthday. As Porizkova also said: "Ageing is a priviledge, not a birthright".
