At 42-years-old and for someone who does not work out at all, I am pretty happy with my figure.
I am going to start working out so I can feel better and feel energized, but other than that, I accept my imperfections for what I am, a flesh and blood human being.
The body is a temporary home for the soul, we should treat it right, but it is not expected to look perfect. At my age, I am accepting and grateful for what I have.
When I was younger, I used to wear lots of shorts and miniskirts, after getting over being bullied for being long and skinny during my teenage years, however, I was still very self-conscious about my spider veins, which thankfully, are genetic, but sadly, not everyone’s case.
Bathing suits were a no-no for me unless I wore shorts over it.
I look back at my younger years now and I regret not enjoying myself.
Varicose veins and spider veins could be the surface of an underlying problem, so it is always a good thing to get them checked out.
As you grow older, you worry more about the health issues than you do about the way you look.
If you are not there yet, you will get there.
It is not so much about the way you look anymore, but more about the way you feel, and about the mark you leave in this world when you are gone.
If you are happy with yourself, then do not worry about what anybody says, because even if you do now, there will be a day when you will not.
And that day might as well be today!
You are and will always be beautiful to somebody!
