Welcome to Dressed for My Day. On Wednesdays I upload a new video to my YouTube channel. And today’s video is all about how to grow old gracefully. Well, actually we’re talking about 5 mistakes you might be making that are making you look older than you really are. Are you making any of these mistakes?
Before you watch today’s video I’d like to share my heart on something. I want you to know that, while I do think the tips I offer in today’s video are valid and helpful, they are also offered in the spirit of fun and good will. The last thing I want to do is offend or hurt you or any of my readers.
I am becoming more and more aware that as we get older we all face very unique and sometimes frustrating challenges. Everything about our bodies and even our minds change in ways we simply had not anticipated.
I know that some of you have even developed medical issues that have further exasperated the so-called normal experiences of aging. You may feel like you just can’t get a break! I hear you. I’ve got some of those myself. And while I don’t talk about all of them, I struggle some days to just stay on top of those things. Not only do those physical maladies and changes make me feel older, they also make me question my attractiveness and my worth…on my worst days.
I get it. Aging is not easy. Some days we feel like young chicks who have got their groove on. Woohoo! And the very next day we look in the mirror and wonder where that woman came from! Honestly, I think the best thing we can do is just gather here (or in my Facebook Group) and laugh about it all…together!
So please watch today’s video in the spirit in which it was recorded. Do not let it make you feel less than. No ma’am. We’ll have none of that here. You are precious and beautiful and worthy and so very unique. And I am rooting for you! I really am.
Now, let’s watch today’s video!

When we’ve been hurt it’s only natural to seek revenge or at least to hope for it. Whether we actually set out to push back or we just fantasize about getting even, it’s very tempting to become consumed with setting things right.
But God asks us to leave justice to Him. Not only that, He tells us to continue to love and do good to the one who has wounded us. Wow. That’s hard. But if we trust that our God loves us and has our back, we can do just that. Really, leaving vengeance to God and conducting ourselves with love and grace despite having been hurt is all about trust. Do you trust that God loves you, is good and will set all things right?
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. ~ Romans 12:19-21
