I read something pretty cool from Reese Witherspoon recently.
Normally, I don’t pay much attention to what Hollywood celebrities have to say because they often struggle to have a grip on reality.
Kinda understandle I guess when you live in a world where nobody ever tells you no and just wants to kiss your bottom every single day.
But Reese seems like she has her head switched on.
I couldn’t give you a rundown of all her films, but I do know I liked her in the Big Little Lies show.
Anyways, the article was how she was embracing getting older.
She’s embracing her greys and her wrinkles.
“I just feel like I earned that grey hair and my fine lines. I like ’em. I so prefer 43 to 25”
How refreshing is that to see from someone in her position?
While she admitted to covering up her greys, I can’t judge her for that.
The fact she acknowledges them in this day and age of social media fakes gets a thumbs up from me.
She’s not off getting a bunch of plastic surgery done so she can compete with girls half her age.
She’s actually enjoying being her.
And so she should.
Nice to see she’s much more than a pretty face.
After all, we all know a lot more now than what we did 20 years ago when we thought we knew it all.
The beauty of being our age now is we’re not naive enough to think that in another 20 years we won’t be in an even better place with another bunch of experiences under our belt.
This is one of the reasons why I started the Top Of The Hill Fitness Podcast For Busy Parents Over 40. To show that we’re not over the hill, we’re actually on top of it – and it’s up to us how long we stay there.
Reese is obviously planning on staying up there for as long as she can. So am I.
Hopefully today you can take a leaf out of her playbook and start embracing you for being you.
