31 Days of Blogging: I'm Committing!

31 Days of Gracefully Aging
My blog has been rather hit-or-miss lately...mostly miss.  But today I came across a challenge that will force compel me to blog faithfully, at least for 31 days.

It's called simply "31 days," and it's a challenge to write on one topic in your blog every day in the month of October.

The topic I've chosen is:

Gracefully Aging

I'm on the far side of my 50's...so much so that I can see that big 60 milestone looming in the not-too-distant future.

A while back, I determined to be the best "woman of a certain age" that I can be.  My blog will focus on making the aging experience as beautiful as possible...not only physically, but spiritually and emotionally as well.

I plan to include, not only tips and advice from experts, but profiles of some of the gracefully-aging women that inspire me most.

Also, plenty of encouragement for those who, like me, want to believe that loveliness is not necessarily a quality that belongs only to the young!

Here's hoping for a successful month of blogging!

Love this...I am 45 and after seeing so many women fight aging (trying to look and dress like they are in their 20's) I decided I didn't want to be that woman...I want to age with grace, even though I haven't embraced the 2" grow out of gray hair..lol...can't wait to read your posts and be encouraged.

I am 51 and started with gray early. I think because of boys!! They did produce some wisdom AND gray hair for me. I am sad when I see older women trying to compete with their teen and twenty something daughters. We don't have to be frumpy! We can be trendy and show our maturity. I decided to let go, save a bunch of money and time and go natural! I have a streak of gray on both sides of my face...and its pretty cool, I think! Women come up to me a lot and ask if my hair is natural or I've had it done. Typically women tell me I'm brave, and they would go natural too if they knew their hair would be pretty. Try it...you might like it!!
