03 - Unlearning the Anxiety About My Age

Can We Rewrite The Narrative For Growing Older As Women?

In this episode we talk about our March theme: aging

Aging is a taboo subject, one that we as women are reminded constantly of the rules from early on. You never ask a woman's age. Magazines, videos, entire industries are directed at women to prevent or reverse the aging process. It’s pretty crazy to think our value as women has an expiration date, and my heart aches thinking about all the women who had come before me whose vast wisdom and knowledge wasn’t passed on. 

So, how do we shift the dynamic and change the discussion on aging to be more positive? If we change our relationship with the idea of aging (removing the fear of the inevitable) can we really write our own narratives around how to age well? 

I started thinking about how my vision of the future would be different, had I not feared growing older. Growing into my skin, finding self-reliance, feeling the freedom of really, genuinely, not caring what anyone from high school thinks of me now, all those things seemed foreign to me way back when I thought 35 was “old.” Rather than fight aging at every turn, I want to do my best to embrace my journeys around the sun, no matter the number.  

This month we declare our own rules for anti-aging. It’s no longer about preventing age, but reinventing how you age. We celebrate every stage and age of womanhood through truth, humor, and candor.There are too many articles and voices out there telling women they are either “too old” or “too young” to be a value to contribute to society as a whole. If we are all both “too old” or “too young” is there a right age?

Whatever your age, you have wisdom and experience to share, and your voice heard.

We are SO HAPPY that you're here and we LOVE hearing from you! Our email address is hello@witanddelight.com and you can find us on Instagram @witanddelight_.
