      Having access to cosmetic surgery isn’t the key to remaining youthful. You can have as many face-lifts as you like but if your mind isn’t fresh and vibrant, you’ll always appear old.  

      Youthfulness comes from within. When you think young you’ll automatically act young.  

      Next time somebody asks you how old you are, don’t tell them. Instead, ask them how old they think you are. If you‘re pleased with the answer then your mindset is obviously tuned in to being youthful. If their guess is closer to your actual age than you‘re happy with then it’s time to reassess your attitude.

      You ARE only as old as you feel.

        • And I’m proud that they have that type of attitude!!

          It’s all about choices so if they choose to have a great attitude - then nothing...including gravity, smoking, genetic etc - can get the best of them.

        • Ms Kay I’m with you... I don’t think the key to staying young is surgery. I most definitely think it is mindset and how you view life. I have no problem with my age or being honest about it. Most people think I am about 7 years younger anyways......

        • Thank you vikki89....i’m glad we‘re on the same page! I’m proud at 42 and also mistaken as younger than that on occasion! I luv it! estatic

          Those who go under the knife i feel will only beget more surgery from then on. To them it’ll always be something to change and become almost obessive.  

          Loving yourself with flaws is great. No one can be perfect!

          God loves us the way we are!

        • It’s scary to look at some celebrities when they were young and to see them 20 years later or more, their face obviously altered by surgery.
          I read an article about Eartha Kitt recently where she talked about aging. She said she is proud of how she looks and would never consider cosmetic surgery, you‘re only kidding yourself.
          In 1998, they interviewed Bettie Page (she passed away today) She said she did not want her picture taken once she got old because she wanted people to remember her how she was. To me that’s kind of sad, aging is a part of life. It was not exclusive to her.

        • Inakika, some of those folks are quite scary looking to me. I would rather you see the expression on my face rather than a blank stare.
          Ms. Kay, I too believe that youthfulness comes from within. Youthful attitude can’t gotten from any surgery. It’s free!

        • Here is a different view for you all.  I feel younger then I have in years.  My mind set is wonderful and I finally enjoy each day for what it brings.  

          Down side of things, I have always looked older then my age until now.  I finally look my age now.  I love it when people ask me my age though.  With a great big smile, I tell them I’m fifty and how do I look.  Most are shocked and say, WOW you look great.  I respond with, Yeah I know.  LOL  I am actually 43 and loving every minute of my 40’s.

          Just a different take on things.

          Desiree’

        • I’m 41 1/2 and proud of it.  I’ve earned every smile/frown line and crinkle I’ve got and I can’t imagine going under the knife to look like I haven’t lived life to the fullest.

          That said, I’m very blessed to have good genes in my family tree and I usually pass for 30-35.  I do think a lot of it has to do with positive attitude.  

          I don’t have a very positive attitude today (sinus infection getting me down) and looking in the mirror, I see the hag I feel like.

        • Being sick is an exceptional rule! We all look like “hags” when we don’t feel 100% estatic but we know that we will eventually feel better and the loveliness we reappear!

        • I have never had a problem telling my true age.
          I grew up hearing people ask my mother what age she was and she never lied...I follow her example.
          I’ll be 48 in two weeks. I think it’s a combination of taking care of myself and attitude that keeps me young...and Mommy’s gene’s don’t hurt either tongue out!

          Of course I have my days when I’m tired or whatever but I am aware that it’s always something that I am not doing enough of or too much of and so I adjust.
