Did you know that today is “Middle-Aged Ladies’ Day?”
Well, it is!
There is finally a day where we don’t have to be embarrassed by a little chin hair. Or a root line that used to be solidly brunette but now has some gray strands. Or a little bit more middle-aged middle.
And there’s finally a day when we celebrate US and our well-earned:
- Smile lines
- Unwillingness to take anyone’s crap, whether it’s our mate’s, children’s, boss’ or client’s
- Permission to ourselves to have ice cream for dinner every once in a while
- Opportunity to shop at clothing stores that are smart enough to have vanity sizing
- Happiness derived, not so much from material things, but from the love and support of family members and/or friends who know exactly what to say to make you feel better when you’re feeling down
Many honor-days like Middle-Aged Ladies’ Day are created by marketers who want to sell everything from peanuts to pickles to Valentines. But not this one.
This one was created by me. A middle-aged lady. And guess what? Middle-Aged Ladies’ Day is everyday. Why? Because WE deserve it.
