Strange that an industry so focused on youthful appearance is filled with so many chain smokers, alcoholics, and drug addicts.

I love Julie Walters.
Not that she's "old" but at 50 years old - Jennifer Lopez looks pretty amazing! I am a year younger than her and I am NOT looking like her!

The only appeal I can think of for younger me, was she was dumb enough to be easy for users and abusers to take advantage of. Maybe that was beautiful to them. It wasn't beautiful to me. I feel that some of those people would take my habit of guarding myself better, keeping myself safer, as some kind of cynicism or "baggage" because I won't simply trust them and let them walk all over me. They prefer the "beauty" of naivete and compliance.

The years have a way of burning away the bullcrap. Refining the soul. Show me THAT, ladies, because in my eyes that's where the real beauty is.

I love older people. I've become interested in this Australian woman, Eileen Kramer. A famous dancer and choreographer, and at 104 years old still dancing. She published a book last year. Watching videos of her makes my skin tingle and brings tears to my eyes. There is something so pure about her. So delicate and perfect.

I guess if people want to make changes to their faces and bodies, I support anyone's right to do that, but I just wish people would give themselves permission to love themselves at any age.
Great post, Sonic_Spork. Totally agree.
