G – Go, Girl, GO!

As I get closer to 50 I find myself more willing to take risk to achieve my dreams.  I also don’t find the term GIRL offensive.

Little girls face life with a fearless attitude. They dance as if they are the princess, they dream of being horse trainers, doctors, mothers and queens. They play with dolls or trucks, but they are in control of their world. They will wear red cowboy boots and pink tutus with pride.

Somewhere along the way the world tells her she is not good enough, she has to fit in, she has to be this or that. Not too much… not too little…just right, but she doesn’t know what that means. So she starts looking outside of herself. Maybe by the time she is 50 she can be that little girl again that twirls with joy and laughs from her gut.

There is something stunning about a women in her full confidence of who she is and in that she builds others up and knows risking for love is always worth it.

I was a little irritated when I was doing some fast research and goggled women over 50 – I got hair styles, fashion and staying sexy.  UGH…When I looked up men over 50 I got what they are working on in their careers and how long they’d been married. The men did not have a single suggestion on how they should wear their hair or a list of clothes they should or should not wear.

“She has been marinated in life experience. She is at the peak of her influence and power. She is committed to living fully and passionately in the second half of life, despite failures and false starts.” – Gail Sheehy, author of Passages

Great things about Women over 50.

Here are some women that came to mind.

One of my favorites is Helen Mirren. Here she is having fun with Jimmy

Then you have the wonderful Diane Keaton – I think she has just become stunning.

    This is so good! I turned 50 last year and I totally embrace where I am right now. I hope to be a positive role model for getting older… that you don’t have to be defined by age. And I too, have no issue with being called a girl =)
