Granny Panties, Ugly Shoes and Mom Jeans…

For all of you over 50 women, does this sound like a laughable statement but know maybe you’re one of them. Of course you would never admit it or would you?  The subject of comfortable shoes comes up quite frequently with my clients. How do you find cute comfortable shoes? They usually tell me they’ve succumb to the “ugly shoes” because comfort is more important.

My husband told me recently that granny panties, ugly shoes and mom jeans all go under the frame work of how you see yourself or how you think the world sees you. It got me thinking.  As baby boomers continue to age you have to decide how do you want to show up in the world? Old and ordinary or fierce and fabulous?

I have personally witnessed that there are the women who want to continue their youthfulness and vitality in their 50’s and 60’s in whatever they do. Then there is the camp who has given up and decided they are “old” and their mindset and actions follow.

I hope you have figured it out by now, I am talking about mindset not comfortable shoes, granny panties or mom jeans. Because I think when we decide to go down the road of, “I am old now” our taste in style goes down the drain also.

Instead, how do you want to feel? How do you want to be perceived? There is an energy that follows depending on the answer you chose.

You may need to decide you’re going to step up to the plate and let go of the perceived, I am ordinary, old and over-weight and it doesn’t matter anymore.

I ask myself,

“Why are certain women over 50 afraid to what I refer to as, reveal their radiance”? Have they not come to the point of accepting their bodies? Are they still in the 20 year old mindset of no-style confidence? Did their mothers scar them for life? Did a man in their life not tell them they were sexy? Or did they just give up and say, “Oh I’m fifty now so it doesn’t matter”?

Ladies, ladies you are so smart, full of wisdom, courageous, sexy, amazing and you don’t even know it. One of the subjects I teach on is what is that “made up perceived image” that you have been telling yourself for years?  It’s time to identify it, acknowledge it and replace it with a NEW perceived image of yourself.  It’s time to wear the cute comfortable shoes, vanishing lace panties and hot jeans for women over 50.

My financial planner tells me I am going to be around until I’m 93 years old so that means I still have 40 years to live, that means these are the good ole days, the days when I have my health, my energy, my 50 year old body that gets me around quite well and lots of choices in life.

It’s time to let go of the 50 years of made-up perceived body image and move into your “ideal image” and live life with vitality. Stop waiting for when the “time is right” or “someday”. That someday is TODAY! Today is the present, a gift for you.

I’m one of you, I’m 55 and loving life to its fullest. Wearing cute comfortable shoes, hot jeans that hug my hips that I forever hated back in my 20’s.  And wearing vanishing no-line panties that flatter every pant I wear.  Life is good.
