What's Age Got To Do With It?

I am constantly empowered by amazing women. I never tire of hearing great stories of strong, independent, ambitious women. These women can be found everywhere you look. It might be the gal that greets your 5 year old at daycare. It may be the amazing Barista at Starbucks that never forgets your name, no matter how long it's been since your last trip. It might be the friend of a friend that you hear about doing mission work in Haiti. Truly phenomenal women.

But, as a women, we also tend to judge ourselves by other women. Are we as good as her? As pretty? As remarkable? When I start to feel this way, I turn to one of my inspirations, Ms. Tina Turner! Read below an excerpt about Tina's opinion on body shape. I suggest that you keep this little tidbit in your back pocket for those days that you need a little pick me up.

"A 50-year-old woman is equivalent to 40 when I was growing up," Tina tells the London Daily Mail. "If you take care of yourself, 60 is nothing for women these days. In today's world, you can be the kind of woman you want to be. I remember my grandmother wearing the apron and the hairdo, but that's gone. Believe me, that is totally finished."

Tina's advice: "Keep up with fashion, keep up with your figure and the clothes you wear. I am an American size ten, which I think in the UK is 14 -- that has remained constant. ... I have thought, 'I can't wear that, I am in my 60s.' But if you look good and you can still do it then go and do it. I'm not 60 in my head, I don't live that lifestyle: My physical attitude is not that of a 69-year-old woman."
