I grew up with a VERY strict and dominating mother!  My mom had so many rules, especially growing older.  

For instance, she emphasized that all women at the age of 35 and older should cut their hair short, because they are no longer considered “young” and should look their age.  

If you‘re married and have kids—exercise should never be incorporated in your lifestyle, because you live only for your family . . . in other words, you are subservient to them.

Also, never wear anything “sexy“, because it’s inappropriate for a woman 35 and older!  

I could go on, but I’d rather not.  

Luckily, I never listened to my mother’s beliefs and did just the opposite.  Personally, I don’t feel any older than I did at the age of 25.  I actually feel so much better,  wiser and happier! (I made a lot of mistakes!) In addition, I am physically in good shape because I work-out consistently.  

I feel young and people think I look young.  My question for you is: “What is the biggest misconception of being your age“?
