    I’ll be 56 in a couple of months. I find I’m more concerned with how I feel than how I look. Don’t get me wrong - I don’t want to look terrible, but my focus is on feeling strong, energetic and healthy. I try to eat well, exercise, meditate, and take care of my hair and skin. Make up is minimal. My goal is to be able to play with my grandkids and enjoy all of life’s opportunities. I do wish I had appreciated my younger self way back when, though!

    We think alike @2poodles. All I want is to be healthy and to look good for the age I am.
