#20yearchallenge

.
Appreciate your life and each day you're here. You never know what tomorrow brings.
.
Be grateful for your good health, your happiness, your family, and your 'inner' beauty whatever age,  body shape or size you are. .
We are all different and unique and that's what makes each and everyone special.
.
My photo was from 20 years ago ( so I must have been maybe in my early 40's as I'm now 64.  This was before filters and apps, but beautifully and flatteringly lit by the photographer. .
I know I didn't appreciate how I looked then and was certainly more critical of myself then than I am now in my old age. .
We all get older and should grow old gracefully or disgracefully if you prefer, whilst being your own person and not caring what others say or how they judge you- especially through social media. .
