Proud to Be Pro-Age and Pro-Grey

Why is it that the more I pull away from the youthful demands of society, the happier I feel?

So, the next time you are mesmerized by an infomercial or titillated by a glittery, well-packaged box, ask yourself this: Who am I and what message am I trying to put forth to those around me? Because every time we leave our homes we are sending a message to those who come into contact with us. What is your message and how will you influence or worse, not influence the people around you? When all is said and done, I believe this to be true: The closer we can get to our authentic self the happier we will be in our lives. Who knows? Maybe someday grey will be the new blonde and the smart silver bob will make a comeback at the Neiman Marcus cosmetic counter.

What’s your reaction?
