Do you feel invisible? Want to change that? Consider my four reasons why midlife women disappear into the ether!

If you do one of the following things, reconsider!

  1. Lie about your age
  2. Hide yourself
  3. Sexify yourself
  4. Try to look 30-ish

As the wise Susan Colby of Girls Gone 50 said:

By fudging our age to avoid becoming an invisible middle-aged woman, we make ourselves invisible middle-age women. Every time we tell that little white lie, we erase a little more of our true worth, diminish our lifetime value, disown our long nights spent battling demons and countless days slaying dragons. We have earned the right to tell the truth that we are powerful and pretty damn awesome.

Because…why would I? πŸ€”What could possibly be wrong about an age? I’m πŸ“πŸ’ and that just happens to be the number of years I’ve been lucky enough to be alive. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ . πŸ’‘ This week I read a quote on @girlsgone50 that just jumped out and hit me because of how perfectly it articulated this thing that’s been in the back of my head for decades. πŸ—“ It gave me a cogent discussion point for the thing I’ve intuited forever. ∞ . πŸ‘©πŸ» Thanks go to my mom, who never joked 🀑 about being πŸπŸ— (or πŸ‘πŸ— or πŸ’πŸ—) and was simply always the age she was, loud and proud. πŸ“£ And thank πŸ™πŸΌ you to all the #midlife and older women who refuse to be invisible. πŸ‘» . ❝By fudging our age to avoid becoming an invisible middle-aged woman, we make ourselves invisible middle-age women.
