actually if i saw them in front of the mirror i really bother about it knowing that i have not done any thng for my life yet like a husband or kids though im going to be a mother soon but as a single mom but then i have to face the truth that i can no longer bring back the hands of time so i need to accept the fact that im getting older every yer. besides i dont have money for any beauty modification

I'm in my mid-30's and some signs of aging really are showing. At first I did not mind them but when somebody started noticing them, I started to be conscious about them. Now my vitamins included some anti-aging ones especially for my skin. I guess it bothers me now than before.

life is a cycle. to me its like spring, summer, autumn and winter. spring is a time to plant after plouging the land and levelling the soil. the seeds are planted and sprout green leaves and shoots. the buds are coming out. its like a baby being born and enjoying childhood and all the pampering. then comes maturity where the flowers are in full bloom. we grow up, graduated, married and raised children. then autumn times where the leaves turn from green to light yellow, brown and then drop off to the ground. that autumn to me, is the starting of my wrinkles, grey hair that is salt and pepper in nature, my chin and skin starts to sag, the skin is no more glowing and pigments appear and many more. then i forget where i put the house or car keys. then maybe searching for my spectacles that are sitting pretty on my head and many many more. i know i am in the sunset years and i prepare myself to grow old as gracefully as i can. my eyesight and hearing may slowly fails me and even my teeth too. its alright. i can go for spectacles, hearing aids and dentures too. then i sit back and reflect on my life in my winter years, on my children and my children's children etc, maybe i live to see my third or even fourth generations. i see my smiles on my daughter, i see my son's nose like that of my hubby. my grandson mouth is like my daughter so on and so forth. then i become aware that we leave part of ourselves behind for our next generation and generations. its a miracle and i marvel at God's great work and tapestry. its a nice, warm, comfortable feeling and this is our heritage to them.i close my eyes and give thanks and praise to GOD for his blessings, grace and favours. His mercy, forgiveness and compassions too ksmita, be of good cheer and dont be fearful of the ageing signs when you grow old.its part and parcel of life and please enjoy all the 4 seasons of your life like i am doing right now.
