aging without botox

Daily Ground- – -January 25

“Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
― Margery WilliamsThe Velveteen Rabbit

Most of us are afraid to be “real!”  We work diligently to keep our hair colored, our skin taut, and our faces smooth and wrinkle- less.   I wish people could see themselves through the eyes of a loved one. The beauty of friendship and kindness, their ability to be honest and available – these things are real! They aren’t ugly because of their wrinkles or grey hair, or cellulite – these things make us real!  No matter how hard we try – if we live long enough – we will all be “real” someday. . .if we are lucky.

Peace.
