Do You 'Act' Your Age?

"Act your age"⁠

"Aa ummare aa badhu naa sobhe

("This doesn't suit you at this age")⁠

"At this age focus on Bhakti, raising kids, running a charity....blah blah"⁠

I used to think: what do I know about fashion or style, or why would anyone care? The truth is, I am loving and discovering this side of me that truly enjoys good, sustainable, carefully and lovingly created fashion.

Is it too late for me to explore this?

Some may think or say so, but here is the thing, you are the only one who gets to decide when, how, why you want to live the life you do. Don't let other people tell you what to focus on. You can choose what brings you joy at any age. ⁠

Luckily, I am surrounded by elders who truly live their lives to the fullest. They learn new skills, try new hairstyles, learn new recipes, keep creating, and travel the world (our grandma is 94 and still going places!). Your living your life to the fullest at any age gives those around you permission to do the same. So, don't hold back. You have been wanting to learn how to sew, write a book, go back to college, learn a new language, or anything else your heart desires. Do it. ⁠

Do you 'act' your 'age'? I certainly hope you don't limit yourself. ⁠Let me know in the comments below what you are doing!
