Better Not Younger: Embrace The Invisible

Better Not Younger: Embrace The Invisible

There is a moment when we become invisible.

I remember mine.

It was a few years back and I was walking down the street with my two gorgeous daughters.
The passing male traffic did what they usually do with the exception of me. I was blanked. Not in a nasty hurtful way but in an invisible way as if I wasn’t there. I was a person no longer of visual interest. My girls took no notice, just as I once took no notice, this time I did.


I will admit it did throw me for a moment – the loss of a wink, a smile or the occasional wolf whistle – I had come of age. Shocking really! Nobody ever imagines they will become invisible to the opposite sex – partners aside of course. And yes, I am talking in generalisations here but undoubtedly when we reach a certain age there is a subtle shift.


You know what? It is the VERY BEST thing to happen to me.

Better Not Younger: Trust Your Instinct

Better Not Younger: Trust Your Instinct

Do you trust your instinct?

This philosophy of mine, “better not younger” means trusting my instinct has an important role.


Ageing hopefully means we have learned to follow our instincts and trust them.
Whenever I don’t listen to my mind, body and heart I usually regret it.

Trusting our instincts is not only a natural response but also a learned one over time.
It goes without saying our instinctive reactions should improve with age.


Self-confidence has a lot to do with instinct.

Trusting our instinct means investing in us. It means believing we have the answers at our fingertips and it also means following through.

There is no point being full of bravado without the conviction to back it up.

International Women’s Day: Every Day

International Women’s Day: Every Day

Women’s Day is every day.

Have you ever stopped to think how incredible you are?

We so often focus on the beauty, the success and the glamour of women, on the all too obvious and yet those qualities while dream worthy and aspirational are not what I am talking about today.

Women have incredible skills and capabilities that come from an intuitive place; they are inbuilt, resistant to just about everything and beyond any value one could attribute.

Better Not Younger: A Game Of Challenge

Better Not Younger: A Game Of Challenge

Better, not younger.

The more I say it, the more I like it.

This is a game of challenge.
It is a challenge not to want to look younger, feel younger, act younger and “be” younger.

We know in all honesty we can’t but it doesn’t stop us trying.
Even the more confident of us must waiver slightly from time to time.

Awareness of what is right, the knowledge of good sense and the wisdom to follow through are not always by our side.

Better Not Younger: In The Moment

Better Not Younger: In The Moment

Better Not Younger is my expression of the moment.

Being in the moment is the perfect example of being “better not younger”.


When I think about the years passing and what it means to each of us I sincerely hope my focus is on improvement, enjoyment and wisdom rather than the re-creation of the past. There is no reason why the future cannot be bigger and brighter than what has gone before; that is how I want to spend the next decades and where I want my focus to be.
