This is me at 50 years old. I took this picture a few days ago without any makeup. Yes, I touched it up a little bit to make it presentable for you, But i left all my crows feet and wrinkles and lines untouched. If all you notice are my crows feet and wrinkles and lines and you’re not impressed, boo. What I see, is my adorable inner child. She’s as cute as cute can be, and that is the point of this article.

The absolute best anti-aging remedy is to lighten up and be playful with your self. Seriously, just lighten up and smile and let your inner child guide your spirit. Let your wrinkles crinkle. Activate the beauty inside and let it spread through you like the softness and warmth and pure joy you feel when you see whatever is your idea of the cutest most adorable thing–whatever makes you smile without an inkling towards caring that your wrinkles are showing. Let that fill you up and bring the light from inside you out to shine.

I know this isn’t what you want to hear. You’re looking for something that’s going to reverse time and knock twenty years off. Some cream in a jar that you’ll willingly pay $1000 bucks to acquire if you can be guaranteed it’s going to work. It’s never going to work.

So hear me out…

The absolute best anti-aging remedy is acceptance and self love and self-friendship and self-compassion

I’ve spent a lot of money on anti aging products in the past. But for the past couple of years I’ve been conscious about not participating in helping billionaires get even richer at my expense. I’m committed to trying to live my best life, and in the process of doing that, taking care of myself from the inside out and the outside in is important. But I am not on a mission to “look young”. I’m on a mission to feel vibrant and healthy and happy. And I think, whatever your age, when you feel vibrant and healthy and happy, it shows on the outside.

What I’ve discovered so far on this journey is that how I look is very much tied to how I feel and vice versa. And it all comes down to the choice that I make inside my head in terms of how I use or abuse my brain power.

I personally think age is a mentality. It has nothing to do with how a person looks on the outside. So many of us become depressed because of how we look on the outside, as if who we are has anything to do with how we look. A happy spirit goes a long long way to softening your appearance and enabling light to shine all around you regardless of so-called wrinkles and crows feet and all the other things we allow to make us feel less worthy to be alive. Life is life. Don’t let your skin define you. Don’t let your age define you. Laugh and smile and be grateful for every day. Nothing is more beautiful, and yes, that is the absolute best anti-aging remedy.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
