This weekend I'm writing for the Millers Seeing Me Project blog about the ever present use of the midlife disclaimer "she looks good for her age". I've been guilty of saying it and I know I've heard it used time and time again in response to midlife women on the red carpet or in magazine articles.
When did we start adding that disclaimer? And why do we do it? An even more important question is - What do we do about it? I think it all boils down to confidence in yourself and your choices. At midlife we've earned the right to ignore the judgments and opinions others want to foist onto us and we can be truly ourselves.
