those role models of women who accept aging as their ally.

pathway to self acceptance.

to thy dreams is the way to discover what the Universe has in store for

6. Thou shalt rise above society’s
youthful ideal and know that wrinkles and lines add softness and depth
of character.

7. Thou shalt protect they beauty
by allowing purpose and intimacy to be central in they life.

8. Thou shalt know that looking
great is wonderful but a rich inner life manifests outwardly as true grace
and beauty.

9. Thou shalt rejoice in uniting
with Nature, allowing her to season thee with wisdom, insight and understanding.
She teaches thee to accept a design far grander than any of thy dreams.

10. Thou shalt keep going, going,
and going…with a lightness of being.

Trust the heart that has loved you all you life.
