After having a grueling 20-something career ending in March 2018, my 30s are far better. Alas, there may be more responsibilities, among them keeping your your health, wealth, and if applicable, family in stride.
We will focus on beauty today. In my 20s, I thought anti-aging products were a hoax. Apparently, 30-plus women want to compete with their sexy 20s counterparts. Well, my 31 year old head was buzz cut. And while I have fine lines on the top, so be it.
While inner beauty should lead over outer beauty, middle-aged and senior women can look just as wonderful as 20s people, no matter how wrinkled or gray they might be, because it fits their age. Whether you are a baby, a kid, a tween, a teen, or in any adult decade, whether 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, or even over 100, you can be beautiful for your age. That being said, this is your OWN age, not representative of another (e.g., 50 but looking 30).
And if inner beauty is more important, why do I write this blog post? Well, first your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 Cor 6:19-20) Moreover, the older you get, the harder life gets. So if you have a combination of both, you will be personally, loving neighbor and self, as well as God, the One who gave you life — the Great Commandment!
To conclude, in my 20s, I thought I couldn’t speak for my thirties. Well, here I am — doing so now! Seniors obviously can’t be “young and beautiful,” but definitely beautiful. (The question is what dominates — inner or outer!)
And for all my brothers and sisters in Christ, this life is a minute fraction of what the awesome life have in our heavenly eternity. But let’s not get too speculative, otherwise we wouldn’t be any earthly good!
