In our last issue, we addressed those men who should not have things in their grown up repertoire that can keep them from progressing or that makes them look foolish.
Now it’s your turn ladies!
Women who are over 50 are in their second spring but there are a few, who are in a race to remain forever young and to their detriment!
There is no doubt that being young is fast, fun, and exciting but there is a time and a season for all things. Trying to hang onto the fast lane too long deprives us of the earned gifts of introspection, self-understanding and deep thoughts that usually accompany growing older.
Female 50-plussers, it is time to embrace your glorious next chapter and not look ridiculous trying to hold back the hands of time. There are certain habits and ways of dressing that you must cut loose.
You are now seasoned queens sitting on well-deserved thrones. Wear your crown with honor and dignity. You are old enough to know what you want and young enough to know how to get it!
Here is a list of things that you need to ditch pronto:
Over-the-top manicures with designs on each finger
Owning a single set of bed sheets
Getting sloppy drunk
Holding a grudge
Wearing ill-fitting bras that emphasize saggy breasts or nips
A weave that cascades all the way down to the curvature of your rump
Cropped tops that are being challenged by bulging rolls
Wearing open-toed shoes with feet that haven’t seen a pedi in years
Trying to cinch a belt around a waistline that no longer exists
Wearing thongs that you can’t find at the end of the day
Crowding your bed with stuffed animals or dolls
Not using a condom in uncommitted relationships
Ignoring your health
Too much jewelry
Thinking you can’t get an STD at your age
Using your children’s or grandchildren’s slang
Putting everyone’s needs before yours
Going to the club
Not watching what you eat
Not loving your body
Friending your children’s friends on Facebook
Avoiding the dentist
Sporting clothing with writing on the derriere like Juicy or Pink
Wearing a tunic as a dress
Dating a man your son’s age
Strutting in pants that give you camel toe
Wearing rompers–you should not take your style cues from little girls
