One of the nicest things about getting a bit longer in the tooth…err older…is that you realize that you know better! What it takes to be your finest self. Gone are the days of worrying about pleasing others’, perhaps even trying to be something you’re not for somebody else.

No fun!

With age, comes wrinkles…oops, we mean, wisdom. You realize comparing yourself to others or trying to be something you’re not…takes too much energy. And is, ultimately, inauthentic and unsatisfying. 

Life is too short!

We love this:

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.

Judy Garland

For us, your” first rate” is simply your personal best. No one else’s…just yours!

Even if being your personal best takes a little extra effort these days (and at the risk of sounding like a commercial):

You. Are. Worth. It.

What’s FUN about being your “first rate” self is that YOU get to choose what it looks like…by figuring out…what matters most to you.

And your finest self looks and feels different for all of us. Create a personal mantra and repeat it every morning!

Ask yourself: “How can I be my first rate self?”

Sure, it’s fun to feel great in your skin.

And it’s fun to keep learning, growing, and loving, too!

You are never too old to ________ (you choose).
