The Importance of Accepting Yourself Unconditionally After 60

By Margaret Manning November 14, 2015 Mindset

There is a special kind of beauty that only older women have. It is not the beauty of youth, with its flawless skin, shining hair and toned muscles. It is the silent beauty of wisdom and confidence. It is the genuine smile of a life well-lived and a future secured. It is the story told by our wrinkles and the depth in our eyes.

Since starting Sixty and Me, I have had the opportunity to meet with hundreds of women over 60. What I have noticed is that the ones that radiate beauty are not the ones that cling to the beauty of their youth.

The most beautiful women that I have met are the ones that love themselves.

These women are quick to smile and slow to anger. They wear their battle scars with pride, not try to hide them under layers of foundation.

I once read a quote that sums this up well. The quote is by Jeanne Moreau, who said “People worry so much about aging, but, you look younger if you don’t worry about it.”

Jeanne Moreau - People worry so much about aging, but, you look younger if you don’t worry about it.
