The other day I was talking to my friend , shes in her mid fifties and she is always talking about her OLD AGE! Hey I do it too ! I am trying to change my mindset about this though. So , to make a short story long. my friend was telling me she was watching her new neighbor . Her new neighbor was young , perky had cute red pig tails .,My friend said " I used to be her .I felt sad looking at her . I am old now...
Well she called me yesterday. This "how the conversation went.
"My new neighbor came over yesterday.We had coffee."
"Really? how was she ? whats her story ?"
"Shes divorced , has two kids 30 and 27"
"Two kids 30 and 27 !!! How old is she ! "
"Oh shes my age.."
Theres a lesson in this Story I think. American movies ,tv shows ,and commericals tend to show women that are Perfect ! Nobody is over weight , wrinkle commercials show 20 year old models. or if they are older they are air brushed , tucked , sucked. pinned, injected, dyed , enhanced..oh the list can go on !
Why don't we start looking at real women in our neighborhood, that we can use as healthy role models , !
My son said to me the other day ... "Have you noticed there's a lot more older chicks on BBC and they are hot ! " Well I don't know how I feel about my 21 year old son saying that ! lol but I checked it out ! yeah theres lots of shows on the BBC that feature older women or realistic looking women as the main character so to quell the negative voices in my head I am going to start doing two things !
1 .Look at women in my neighborhood that embody the qualities I want to have !
2. Start watching more BBC !

I am between seasons now , and have a little time at home . I am trying to f ind a way to get myself organized ! I tend to be a little ... well more then a little distracted , I think I have Add also panic attacks ! Yikes not a good combo . Using a timer is really helpful for me and also I used a program called Hott Notes to leave little post it notes on my computer , Exercise , spark , clean house , organize bills and so on .
I am also trying to be more thankful for the food I eat ! I remember my father , who was a chef , to THINK about the food ! " Look at this beautiful orange , its grown in the sun , in a beautiful orchard , taste the sunshine" Also lighting a candle , using pretty plates and not eating anything I don't truly love ! and um also trying not to stuff my face without paying attention..... I swear there was a sandwich on that plate ! Did I eat that already !
