Age Does Not Matter Unless You Are Cheese post update 11-16-2023
There is nothing more defining than for older women who let their lives shine after everyone else seems to think it is over. We are not being sarcastic, in many places including the workplace, if you are over 40, you are considered older in some companies. I was told that once in an interview with an agency.
Hogwash, age does not matter unless you are a cheese. I am positive, I am one who believes this fully. Age is just a number.
Older women are living their years without letting other people tell them they are too old and too tired. Inspiration for older women comes when they see others just like them getting a new lease on life. They have a significant new plan to live by and it is to keep going. These women are showing the world that life can be great, or greater at any age.
If you think, I am kidding, let me tell you about one lady who is still going strong. Her name is Marie Porter Freeman, my cousin who is 96 years old. She still lives by herself and attends Church every Sunday possible. She has staying power and does not dwell on negative things or about what anyone else thinks. Hooray for Marie and others just like her.
It is time for the older woman to jump to their feet and tell the world that life still exists after 50, 60, 70, and beyond. There are still feelings of love, appreciation, exercising the mind, and the need for love. Age does not ‘always’ stop the normal activities of life or the mind. If every individual regardless of age did all of the necessary and prudent recommendations for a well-lived life, age would begin to be less important.
The facts are, we know with age our normal activities start to be more important to us. We have learned how important it is to make the right decisions, increasing our mental activity and body exercise. It is much easier to know what we need, instead of what we want. We have learned a few things that make our lives more productive and fulfilling.
“Those few things mean we are less likely to stumble upon a snake in the grass, take a forbidden journey, or foolishly buy the store out.”
Older women know that the love of God and His grace will sustain them. Courage is a feature of the non-stoppable woman who dares those who watch, to say a negative word. She really does not care if they do, and she just might not hear them anyway and keeps on with her strut. People’s words do not matter the most anymore, because one has learned how to separate the constructive from the non-constructive.
What Do The Women Who Have Endured Getting Older Share in Personality and Traits?
- A love for life, and a willingness to live it with every thread in their body.
- They fully know how to be themselves, without asking permission.
- Good thoughts are prominent as there is no time for bad or weak thoughts.
- They draw upon inspiration, from reading, learning something new, believing in the impossible, a lot of prayers, and faith.
- Yesterday’s thoughts are gone, and tomorrow’s thoughts do not exist, their mind is fixed upon” what will I do today that is greater than yesterday.”
Secrets That Can Help You Master Aging

- Enjoy what being older brings with it, and let others pamper you, you deserve a payback.
- Write your own autobiography.

Your Aged Beauty and Inspiration Will Flow to Others
Inspiration flows to others through the continuation and strong-willed individuals who will dare not stop because of age, handicap, or the fact they are left alone.
When you ask most individuals who they admire the most their first answer is their mom. There is no one like our mom who has loved us through thick and thin, the good, the bad, or the ugly. She surpasses any other individual. Our mom was strong when she needed to be, tough at the right time, and loving when she knew love was the answer.
Beauty is not only for the young woman who has all of the right features. Beauty shines when an individual has that glow of self-approval, approval for their fellow man, and a smile that is genuine.
Inner beauty has no pretense. It actually has no set of rules. It is just something you not only see but also feel when you know that one’s heart is in perfect harmony with their life, and with God.
A list of Inspirational Older Women Who Defied Age- you do not have to be famous to shine in your life
Grandma Moses– This woman started painting at the age of 76 when arthritis would not allow her to do embroidery any longer. She was a success and became somewhat of a celebrity at the age of 101. According to Business Insider, in 2007 one of her paintings sold for $1.2 million.
Susan Boyle was 48 when she sang her heart out with the ease of blowing a kiss. She sang like an angel during “Britain’s Got Talent,” and it will never be forgotten or the end of her talent. The video brings chills and tears when you see the lovely person who had taken care of her family prior to the time she sang on the show. Her success was that of great magnitude with her voice of great strength.
Helen Mirren– Actress…this woman is still going strong as a leading actor and does not let being over 60 monopolize her life one bit. In 2011, she had the title of best body of the year, and in 2010 posed for New York Magazine according to Shape.com. She was a daring child.
Christy Brinkley– She is a business owner, and model, and has many other titles. Her age of 69 is not an issue and she has come out recently with a face cream to help others with their skincare. She is actually more beautiful now than ever.
Betty White- No one needs an introduction to this ever-glowing and masterful woman. She is now deceased but she kept going, making jokes and laughing till her sides hurt. She was truly an inspiration and will remain in the heart of us forever.
Dolly Parton is still living a life of blessedness. She acquired her fame by daring to be herself and not caring if it was admirable to others or not. She is admired by many still at the age of 77 as of this writing.
The list goes on ladies if this is not enough to get you off the couch and going, let me know and I will give you another push.
Summing up… Don’t Allow Someone Else to Label You As Old is how you perceive yourself, your actions matter, and definitely your mindset…
If you have a positive attitude and want to do something extraordinary (you think), do not listen to those who think you just might be a little out of your wits. You can do and achieve (with a lot of prayers), whatever you set your mind to within reason.
There is no need to have the, “I’m done,” mindset before it is your time. Nor, just sit back and watch others enjoy their life when you can also live it up. Find your older talent, and make it bloom it is not just for the young. It is for everyone.
