“When I was around 18, I looked in the mirror and said, ‘You’re either going to love yourself or hate yourself.’ And I decided to love myself. That changed a lot of things.”
—Queen Latifah

Queen Latifah got it right at 18, yet many of us still struggle with our relationship with the mirror. Especially now later in life.

Are you having a “mirror crisis”? This week we discuss how we feel about seeing ourselves in the mirror, which tells us every day we are aging.

So, what can we do about it?

There are several ways we can become more comfortable with the mirror. First and foremost, we need to feel comfortable with our age. We are as old as we are. While that is a fact, we can redefine what aging means and change our perspective. We can get older in the best ways possible for us.

Find older women we admire and take a page from their playbook. What makes them attractive interesting at their age. How are they redefining age?

Hear our perspectives and what go each of us through our own mirror crises.

Are you experiencing a mirror crisis? Maybe it’s time to listen to Queen Latifah and choose to love yourself in the mirror exactly as you are today.
