We all want to stay young. We don’t want our bodies to age and we will use whatever means possible to removes the signs of aging. Wrinkles are the worst! We feel that they make us look older before our time and we will pay an arm and a leg for creams and treatments to see them disappear.
I love seeing people with wrinkled faces! Each one of us is unique, and each winkle tells a different story of adventure. We often hear: “Oud word is nie vir sissies nie…” and this is true. But on our journey of maturing, we have so much adventures and experiences – not all good – but never the less adventurous. And those adventures can be seen and read in the wrinkles on your face.
Some of us have had more adventures than others – thus more wrinkles – and it’s when we embrace these wrinkles, our stories becomes our own. Our lives, adventures and experiences becomes real to others and we can say we lived life.
I hope my face will be covered in wrinkles one day! Not so that I can look older, but that I can speak of experiences, of adventures, how I overcame adversaries, how I excepted challenges head on and made the most of each beautiful day.
Embrace your wrinkles. Show them proudly. They tell your story, they celebrate your life.
