The Obsession To Look Younger than Your Age
Copyright @ 2009 A. Lewis - Heaven Ministries

The obsession to turn back the clock and change something about our natural selves can be a time consuming affair. Why are we always scrambling to find the next fad treatment for younger looking skin and gorgeous body? Life does not end when we turn thirty – it only gets better because we’re wiser and smarter by then. The truth is the undue stress that we put ourselves through while trying to maintain younger looking skin and body can actually age us, tremendously. How about exercise and eating right? Will that work?

The fact is the best way to look good at any age is to be a happy and content person with the body we are in. Eating lots of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains wouldn’t hurt either. There are lots of expensive anti-aging treatments, crèmes and lotions you can apply and using them may subconsciously make you feel better about the way you look, but happy-go-lucky people are more fun to be around than those who are always obsessing about the way they look.

Our we relying too much on plastic surgery, liposuction, botox, and toxic creams to take care of the way we look and feel? We may think we can continue smoking since we’re using an expensive anti-aging crème. Or perhaps we can eat those last two donuts because we can just go have a tummy tuck. These things are harmful to our health. They do not make us feel better physically and emotionally - they only work for a fleeting moment because most everything in life is temporary.

What is for certain and not temporary is that we are all aging, and to age naturally we should allow the process to come on biologically without adding any extra emotional and mental stress on the body. We have to accept the fact that God created us to age. We all can’t look like Angelina Jolie, and the minute we accept that frame of mind the better it will be for all of us.

The natural fine lines of the woman over forty, fifty, and sixty who takes care of herself is simply a part of the creation process. When we stop worrying and fretting over “how we look” we can stop obsessing over what to change about ourselves. The natural aging person, who takes care of themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally, will age gracefully and beautifully just the way nature intended.
