Journal Prompt: What was the last compliment you received?

Hmm... Good question. I am often told that I look younger than 62, and this is meant as a compliment. But the thing is, looking old at 62 is really a thing of my mom's generation. Women dress more youthful today -- I dress like a teenager half the time -- and we have a freedom and an independence that our mom's lacked.

Independence and the ability to choose what you want to do has its own collagen, its own anti-wrinkle ability. My mom was saddled down in an era where women had very little choice about their lives, careers, relationships. Now women are doing all kinds of crazy wonderful things and age is becoming younger.
