Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard. >^..^<

I love this. Other cultures respect their senior population. What's wrong with us in the United States, where we value youth over maturity? Even I fall into the trap of trying to erase the signs of aging. Yes, I color my hair and use products that promise to slow down the creation of wrinkles. I'm my own worst enemy in front of a mirror! I know I need to turn my negative self-messages into positive affirmations of appreciation for all I've learned, experienced and survived. I've really earned every single gray hair, every line in my face. You bet I've earned them. I should be proud!
Ok, let's try it. Let's CATCH OURSELVES every time we look in the mirror and say something negative about our apperance, and turn it into a positive message of gratitude for how much wiser we are now. On the spot! Anyone with me? We'll keep tabs and see how this goes!
