As my 40th birthday approaches, I feel very young. Yes, I know I have blogged about my grey hairs, but that has nothing to do with age. As a girl, I thought 40 was ancient. I thought I would have it all figured out, be sage and wise, I don’t think I considered “fun”. The truth is, I am in better shape and fitter now than when I was in my 20’s, (though I may weigh a few kilos more!) plus I love to be fun. I like being silly with my kids at a park, I like bouncing on the trampoline or yelling “race you to that tree!” (Then slowing my steps so the 5-year-old doesn’t get left behind!).

These older ladies show that you don't have to be young to be divine in a swimsuit!

Well, I have found a woman after my heart: Donnalou Stevens has written a wonderful song about older ladies being divine. It’s no wonder this video has gone viral as she and her friends display a great sense of fun as they joyfully horse around to this song. “My tummy ain’t tucked or liposucked, it’s a little poochy but it’s still hoochie coochie,” Stevens croons. “And if that’s the reason that you don’t love me, then maybe it’s not love.”

I have found this to be true as well when watching a belly dance performance. The mature ladies give a certain extra to their performance which comes from experience, knowledge and knowing who you are. I want to be this divine as I head into my “mid” years. Go Donnalou I’ll be keeping an eye out for you!
