Yesterday's Gone...

"Baby. life's what you make it,
Don't back date it.

Don't try to shade it,
Beauty is naked..."

TALK TO PAWS Pictures, Images and Photos

It's just under a week to my birthday - on Monday next week... I'm as naked as I'll ever be... Unprimped, uncollagened, unbotoxed - Just as life made me - With all the lumps and bumps and blemishes that fate had in store for me when first I quaked from the womb...

It's getting to that stage where even younger colleagues, (who really shouldn't be able to afford it, but who are desperate!), are having the injections, voting for filler and Nil By Mouth... They want to re-capture who they were when they were 20, so as to hold on to (for me) long-forgotten dreams...

It's my birthday on Monday coming - I've the day off to celebrate. (Well, to dust the house and to wrap some parcels in time for Christmas, really... I'm a slattern and proud of it).

And I know I'm barking mad... I say it myself... I don't really care what others think of me, as long as I can still hold some respect for myself...

"Everything's all right...
Life's what you make it.
Everything's all right...
Life's what you make it".

All the plastic in the world won't make you love yourself, if you don't love yourself to start with...

It won't heal your ills. It won't bring back an errant, younger husband... It won't right wrongs. It won't put right the past horrors of your life...

"Baby, life's what you make it -
Celebrate it;
Anticipate it;
Yesterday's faded.
~Nothing can change it...
Life's what you make it..."



1986 - The year I was married - I was a child-bride - Did you know that??!

It's a pity women can't look at themsleves the way men do. We all thing we're irresistible and hence don't make the slightest effort at primping ourselves - well, certainly those of my generation.

Very well said! But I also feel if getting a little tuck here and there is perfectly fine if it will make one feel better about themselves. That doesn't bother me. I have lost alot of weight ( over 100 lbs. ) and I plan on losing alot more. So I definitely will be tucking..oh yes..for sure. LOL!

Love this post! I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

I couldn't believe it either when I read that models in their 20's are getting Botox!!! Soon everyone is going to have the same frozen face-

except for me with my bumpy nose and droopy eyes ;-)
