MILF (Mothers I Love To F …)

By N Mark Castro

I’m tired of 22 year olds thinking they’re special for being hot. You’re 22. You’re supposed to be hot.

Call me when you’re 45 and hot.

Young kids will always be just that … Young and kids. But to age gracefully requires dedication and discipline, with inner beauty emanating from within, glowing, radiating, and infecting.

It’s easy to spot worn-out kids with their zits and boogers, pretending to be adults, but as immature as their … well, do the math.

Here are some celebrities that can teach kids a whole of things or two.

There is aging — and then there’s aging gracefully, the process by which we just improve each year. Admit it: Wouldn’t you rather age gracefully than age grumpily? Graceful agers are the people who approach each birthday with a skip in their step. They are people who see untapped horizons where others see obstacles. They come in all shapes and all sizes but the one thing they have in common is that aging doesn’t slow them down; it improves them.

Hollywood being Hollywood, of course they have a slew of trainers and nutritionists; some are even to nip and tuck while others become a Beverly Hills High School Science Project.

But there are some simple secrets you can engage in.

You can stay current with popular culture happenings. Keep your brains young by exploring new concepts. Pick up a few new hobbies. And make exercise and nutrition a priority.

In other words, don’t “act your age”.

Don’t slow down. And don’t spend your days sitting on the couch.

Be optimistic, enthusiastic and interested in life. Don’t fret about their wrinkles or grey hair.

And don’t limit yourself.

A guide to a better understanding of aging gracefully also stems from the fact that no psychological trait is as important to your health as the ability to cope with life’s craziness. Yes, nutrition and exercise are important elements of a healthy, disease-resistant body. But what matters as much as, if not more than, daily concerns with food and fitness are the attitudes and mindsets that guide our lives.

According to scientists, the real source of aging gracefully is attached on a person’s resilience.

When 600 people age 85 and older were asked to identify the key components of successful aging, the answer that topped their list surprised even the experts: resilience. They defined it as being able to adjust to circumstances, focus on gains rather than losses, and appreciate blessings.

Resilience is what makes kids who grow up surrounded by poverty or cruelty still able to get into top universities and become successful. It’s why some people rebuild after hurricanes, despite the challenges and hardships. It’s why you say of someone who’s been diagnosed with cancer, or who has lost their husband, or whose business has failed: “I can’t believe how well she’s handling this.” A resilient person is like a rubber band — capable of being stretched and stretched, but always able to snap back.

In Nora Ephron’s best-selling book, I Feel Bad About My Neck, she laments the sorry state of her 60-something neck: “Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn’t have to if it had a neck,” she writes.

At the end of the day, real beauty is that which you carry within …

Because that’s what will come out.
