Learn to appreciate yourself in 40’s and after
Acknowledging yourself today or tomorrow is a good practice for sure. If not then, now is not that bad either—appreciate yourself always. At this age, hardly anyone compliments you or appreciate things you have done for people. And, if you are kind of a person who need an approval from others, you are miserable. Just because, others don’t say how amazing you are, doesn’t mean, they are right. You don’t need approval for pursuing anything in life, something’s are to be initiated by yourself and this is the right time, if you lacked till yet.
Identify your best qualities
No matter if anyone appreciated you today or not, identify your best and worst traits. Work on them, polish and become amazing. You love traveling—travel the world even it ends on the country side;), you love to cook—prepare yourself the best meal or eventually start your own cooking classes, keen to learn languages – go and register yourself to one.
Pursue your ever longing dreams
Don’t wait for your dream opportunities, create new ones with what you have right now. Yes, dreaming is a good thing, finding excuses is not. If it’s too late to pursue your older dreams, look around you and find something and see what you can do with it. Life doesn’t stop at 40, it starts at 40.
Don’t compromise now!!
Enough of compromises till now, this is the time to break all the rules. Don’t compromise your priorities just because you are afraid that you will lose children or husband. The worst thing in the world is to lose yourself among all this. With each compromise you lose a part of you. This is not the time where people appreciate your kindness and will appreciate the compromises you have done for them. You are your own strength—losing someone than loosing yourself is a better option. People tries to steal your energy and every possible kindness that you offer in silver plate.
Appreciate the way you look
The beginning and end of everything for women ends with how do I look? No one appreciated you today or as the time had passed, people lacked interest in you. Doesn’t matter, you are your first lover and appreciator, love the way you look or improvise the way you do. Pamper yourself—shop, spa, salons, anti-aging treatments and more. At this age, when you are free from all the responsibilities, explore yourself, turn around the clock with anti-aging skincare cream by Lifecell and look as if you gone back 10 years. Also, a new haircut or a long rejuvenating spa can help you feel alive.
Be Insanely Grateful to Yourself
When is the last time you thanked yourself for being so amazing. Never?? Oh! That’s the first thing I should have listed in these appreciation points. Thank yourself for everything you do and everything you have done for yourself till now. A very powerful way to thank yourself and love yourself is an affirmation that I learned many years before from Louise L. Hay’s wonderful books and audios. The affirmation: “I love and approve of myself.”
Deep, heartfelt gratitude is a wonderful way of nourishing your spirit and giving thanks to yourself.
