Most of us took our 20’s or even our 30’s for granted. We loved what we saw in the mirror and we were feeling ourselves in way more ways than we weren’t. But Father Time started making cameo appearances in our lives in the 2nd half of our 30’s- never taking over the show, but certainly making himself known. And He kept showing up so often nobody takes their 40’s for granted.
By the time we reach our 40’s too many of us have been exposed to the costs of aging to be cavalier about the passage of time. For some, the 40’s means their best days are a distant memory. Others choose to fight back. And with those brave brawlers I’ll share this word of encouragement: You Are Not Going To Defeat Father Time. He is Undefeated: His Record Is 500 Billion Wins and Zero Losses.
BUT YOU MAKE HIM FIGHT EVERY DAMNED MINUTE OF EVERY ROUND HE GOES WITH YOU. IF YOU CONCEDE AN INCH HE WILL TAKE 100 MILES- SO GIVE HIM NOTHING
We have never had more ammunition to fight the good fight against Father Time than we do right now. Between our advances in nutrition, exercise science, and medical technology it is no shock to see a 45 year old woman turning heads the way that used to be reserved for 24 year-olds. She just has to choose to fight- her own way for her own win. And so do the rest of us. I’M IN- and I hope you are too.
