I watched the Oprah show – the episode where people would guess one’s actual age. And most of them are single mums, age guessed were all an extra 10 years, at least.
Reason : Too busy taking care of other people, they don’t have much time for themselves.
And the transformation made with some liposuction, lasik surgery, dental fix, hairdo, new clothes & a little touch of make-up was amazing! Minus the liposuction, lasik and dental fix which not everyone can afford, I’m sure all the rest are not too hard to apply.
I sure am glad I watched it!
I can very much understand their time constraint. Even me, with a husband to help around with house work, and taking care of the little one too, sometimes feels helpless. What with having to work in the office, and return home with more work to do.
But I am taking baby steps. Gym during lunch, monthly facial, massage, run in the park with the boys whenever I can, even just following Imtiyaz’s pace at doing things – five minutes to get to the door, five minutes to walk to the car, five minutes to climb up the car seat and buckle up… five minutes to turn off the tv, another “yast(last) 5 minutes, mama” to turn off the tv…
He’s not slow. He’s just taking his time, and taking in whatever he can take along the way.
That’s one thing I need to learn from him – To relax. To slow down. To stop and smell the flowers. To appreciate.
For all you know, that might just slow down the aging process! 🙂
