POLISH THE SILVER...... IN YOU.

 

It’s possible that after we’ve lived more-than-a-little-while… spent a lifetime putting everyone but ourselves- first- including wives, husbands, children, parents, pets, a job…..there’s very-little left of the real “us“ ---the individuals we were, originally.

I easily recall the morning I looked in the mirror for a quick “check-up” before running out the door…to my job.  Something felt different that morning; at first-glance, the woman looking back at me was a stranger.  She definitely needed a makeover.  Not only was her hair outdated but, her makeup had died in the eighties, and her teeth weren’t white. Most alarming, her outfit looked frumpy and dumpy---  like she was hiding something. I realized SHE was ME..... someone I’d taken for granted for too-long and now, needed all my love and attention. I promised that, immediately after work, we’d get together for some Silver Polishe.

Once upon a time, every one of us was motivated to look and feel our best. We believed in endless possibilities and age was merely a word.  Trust me, the possibilities are still possible and age is still just a word.  The only thing in short-supply is Time, Money, and Energy.  Once you forget time and begin focusing on change, you’ll realize that not-having-money doesn't have to "break" you and.... once you lighten your stress load…. you’ll find your energy.

 The original “you” hasn’t gone anywhere, it’s only hidden. It’s lying beneath the surface, under layers of neglect. Like fine silver, your appearance has grown dull and tarnished from lack of attention.  I know, from experience, that you’ll find your original “sparkle” as soon as we apply some Silver Polishe.  

Remember, I’m not some talking-head trying to sell you a product or some Hollywood Celebrity with a live-in, Cosmetic Surgeon-Boyfriend! I’ve lived as many years-- if not more-- than most of you and I've had more-than-my-share of drama, trauma, and down-days. But it took only one "day of reckoning" before I decided to "make over" my life--- beginning from the inside-out. 

I spent years developing Silver Polishe.  I copyrighted the name so its forever-mine. For now, I use it to show how makeovers are equally important for both the outside and the inside. Feeling good about ourselves....matters. 

Tomorrow, I’ll begin the check list for using Silver Polishe.  I hope you’ll be with me as we polish our looks and add shine to our lives. 

Stay Close.... My Ageless Friends.
