This came in today’s email!!! I retyped it because I couldn’t figure out how to get it in here otherwise.
Your mind may be ready for summer. Is your body?
Beach weather will be here before you know it.
Procedures like breast augmentation, liposuction, lifts and tucks can help you show off your confidence as you show off more skin. And even though you’re still wearing your winter coat, it’s the perfect time to do your research, ask us questions and schedule your treatments.
Charlotte Plastic Surgery
There was a beautiful woman pictured and the whole thing was in tasteful shades of mauve.
I accidentally hit the link to their practice’s web site and I just wanted to punch out all 5 of these guys. I know times are hard. A friend who recently had some plastic surgery told me that today the surgeons will throw in extra procedures because they are desperate. I recognize that someone has to pay so these folks can go to Third World countries and save children, but Dear Lord, do they not know how ads like these hurt women.
If you have the cash and want this surgery, fine. It’s your business. I just hope you don’t really think it will give you confidence. Real confidence comes through achievement, not skin. But ads like this just ad to the myth of beauty and youth in our country and leave so many women disappointed and despairing.
Getting old isn’t fun. I look in the mirror and wonder who the hell that is. Inside I feel eternally 30ish and womanly. Outside I see my crone years. But the crone stage is an earned thing. You get here by battling life–winning, losing, mostly learning. Confidence comes from that as well.
Beauty? Well, it can have some wrinkles. It comes from spirit, from attitude. Believe in yourself and what you know and can do and have done, and beauty just glows through the physical. Could anyone be more beautiful than Katherine Hepburn in her 80s?
In my humble opinion. I always have one. Thanks for reading.
