Have you heard the one about the millions and millions of women who aren’t afraid to get older? Yeah, neither have we, here’s the thing though why haven’t we heard of these women? Women are doing amazing things, we’re heads of households and heads of state, we’re firemen, astronauts, publishers and university presidents. We can have kids at 24 or 44, we can love our husbands and our wives, and we can do almost anything.
Except age gratefully.
Yes, gratefully, because in this society aging is a crime that is punishable by toxic injection, years under the knife and a never ending sentence of anti-aging creams and unguents. The GrammaSutra has decided that if we can’t age gracefully can we at least age gratefully? How does one age gratefully, we’re so glad you asked.
Stop whining about the ass you used to have, the breasts you used to have and the hair you used to have.
Be happy that you no longer think foreplay is a British rock band and that you need to bend yourself into a Cirque de Soleil gymnast to mirror your mate.
Start bragging about your knowledge of rare books, perfect bakeries in Venice, how to make a man beg for mercy in the bedroom and the boardroom.
Tell your best friend that she’s beautiful, tell your worst enemy that she’s beautiful and tell yourself that you’re beautiful.
Lie about your age; don’t lie about your age, who cares? Just enjoy yourself.
The GrammaSutra wants to hear millions and millions of women of a certain age enjoying themselves. We want to change anti-aging to new aging, great aging, sexy aging or just plain happy aging. Let’s stop wasting time on our past time paradise and enjoy our now NOW.
When you look at the alternative, aging gratefully is the least we can do.
