Sheryl Crow states she doesn’t love aging as she feels young at heart.
I agree, when the mirror image no longer seems to reflect the age your spirit feels, you are Trending50.
Also, Trending50 is different for American women than in other parts of the world where physical perfection is not the constant goal impressed upon one by media culture.
I haven’t done a scientific study but anyone who has been on a beach in Europe or compared an American’s set of teeth with just about any other country knows, the pressure in the US to remain ageless and achieve physical perfection is intensely relentless compared with just about every other culture where being human is just that human and the physical imperfections that come with being human are part of the path.
That’s why I feel I am better suited to share from an American perspective and hope it is easier for women of other countries when they Trend 50.
But Trending50 is more than the normal process of your body aging or as I like to call it “ripening”. It’s also all the other cultural baggage that has seeped into our personal beliefs that when we develop, we struggle when reality diverges from the cultural belief systems we once accepted.
