I turned on the television one day last week… I saw some older women who once played in Soap Operas… all of them look as if they all went to the same “plastic surgeon”… And there is a reason they call it plastic surgery! When I saw all of these women and some of the men… look as if someone have given them a dosage prednisone…
Prednisone is a steroid that is supposed to reduce the swelling in most inflammatory diseases … Also that are used to treat other illness… and one side effect of the drug is that you begin bloating all over and get this moon face.
My Mom died from sarcoidosis, the same disease the “King” of Comedy, Bernie Mac had suffered with. It’s a disease that affects all of your organs…with inflammation… especially lungs and lymph glands. It’s treated as a rare form of cancer especially Afro Americans. There is no cure!
I couldn’t believe that all of these individuals looked absolutely horrible! I wondered if anyone bothered to look in a mirror. I said to myself… They couldn’t believe they look youthful they look bloated and on steroids. I am not make light of people but I can’t believe that they actually “thought” they look good!
Transition time for us middle age people isn’t always that easy. I had to ask what is going one and who is getting all this work done and for what?
Personally, I don’t see that much improvement when you look as if you have been in a fight and loss!
I can go here from experience… when you going through that change of life… you see the differences in your overall look. What you can take control of… like your weight and overall lifestyle changes…I understand the want for change and to look your best. The truth is real beauty starts from the inside and then works itself out. I saw recently news host… and there was so much make-up on this woman who really didn’t need it. From ministry I learn immediately, it’s what they are hiding from the inside.
You can go to all the surgeons in the world… for the attention will only be temporary and or short lived before you feel something else is “ugly” with you…
So why not make another impact from the change of the heart it’s that choice that can change all of your appearance.
When one starts altering your appearance… and I know for some it might be self-esteem boost… But all I see is pain. Women are totally altering their bodies from a rear end job until a total reconstruction over their entire face. I think … what sadness…
Unfortunately, Hollyweird… has told the lie and I am amazed at how many have been bought and sold on what they think look good … Going plastic and looking absolutely artificial!
How many times people ask if I had work done? Ask to see my ID… Are you serious?
Work on what?… I am getting older… I get up from the table and off my “blessed assurance”… Exercise for real!!! Watch what surrounds me mentally and spiritually…
And my personal credo is that I stay away from anything that’s toxic… public or private… people, places or things! I don’t need artificial relationships and crowds of “yes” or fake friendships to build me.
Life is too short to exchange all of my inner joy and peace for garbage!
The beauty of having a personal relationship with God is that he is the only that gives you all the surgeries in one!
