Okay, Okay, so my girlfriends would slap me upside my pretty little head because I am even referring myself to be “40” .. I am still technically midway to the bad ass age of 40 and I am proud to say, I am not even a little bit terrified. These young millennials who refer to us as “old” and “washed-out” clearly don’t see our closets adorned with Red Bottoms and Memories of Vegas. They don’t see the old Honda Civics that have tuned into Benz. They don’t see the tireless nights we stayed up studying for university exams to get to the careers we have today. They don’t see the wisdom we hold and when I say wisdom, I mean going to Vegas and walking in the front door of Omnia before the upwards of 5000 waiting paying event attendees with our vibe tribe of women arriving yet an hour late to Calvin Harris.
Ladies turning 30-35-40 isn’t some magic event that denotes your life or your lifestyle. Newsflash to the twenty somethings who always try to catch a vibe from us, we earned this age. We earned this life. We earned every little bit of botox or lip filler that makes everyone still question our age. We earned the amazing crew of women that surround us. We earned our badge.
Do you remember when you were a teenager and you looked at your mom and clad in your big hoop earrings and lock-up jeans said “but you’re old”. Our parent’s weren’t old. They lived in a generation where there was more wisdom, dedication, loyalty and love then anyone from the ages of 12-29 would every understand. Being born in the late 70’s or 80’s..us star seeds, we are here to change the world. We remember life before the internet. Heck we remember the big huge telecom like cell phones that were more like walkie talkies where we pulled the antennas up and thought it was the COOLEST thing ever. We remember hanging out on the kitchen floor on our dial-up land lines twirling the spiral cord around our fingers while we tried to whisper to our girlfriends for hours with out our parents listening..or listening to the click of a brother or sister picking up the phone to see if we were still on it.
