In one of my previous posts, I talked about getting older and age being, not just a number.

Since belated is used with birthdays, I decided to talk about birthdays — that was until I checked the definition and I was embarrassed at how I have abused that word.

It means “delayed”.

So all the times I thought I was doing something extra by adding belated to birthday 🎊 messages, I have in essence being saying “Happy delayed birthday?!😳🙄

I know I’m a character. But this? I don’t know what to think. (Lord, let it not be aging. Amen. )

In my defence though, belated sounds cute. Like an extra, double whammy happy, to a birthday.

Speaking of birthdays. Having birthdays was fun, when we were adolescents and early teens.

We couldn’t wait to be grownups. Now we are, and some of us wish we weren’t. Because there are lots of things that are still belated, in goals and achievements.

Some of us could do without the reminder of one more year gone by, without something befitting our age, to boast of.

Quite disheartening.

I felt bad when someone asked me when, I was going to have a birthday party. I felt bad but I tried to laugh it off. I spoke a word of faith concerning the matter. And I’m believing God for a miracle.

What are your delays and what are you doing about them?

One of mine is using this blog as my voice, since I don’t seem to have many people seeking my opinion. I wish I had began earlier.

So many things that could have been done earlier, but haven’t began.

But with God nothing shall be impossible.

I believe that word.

Shalom. 🌎

Something New, Something Different…

I just learnt that ‘wrinkle’ means more than just a ruffled surface or appearance of a person, thing, or situation. It also means a resourceful way of doing something. 🤦

Hello again and happy Friday everyone!🎊 Today might be a day to unwind with popcorn, a novel/movie. Or it might be a day to catch up with family, friends and house chores. Whatever the case may be, try to relax, unwind and have godly fun. Yeah, it possible to have fun and not sin.

I thought I might take this opportunity to mention a few things about skin care that prevents or postpones wrinkles.

Wrinkles makes most people concerned, because as long as there are no wrinkles, most of us feel young — no matter how old we are.

Many won’t bother to give their skin extra attention if not for the fear 😱 of having wrinkles.

A lot of us desire to be forever young, so we load up on nutritional supplements, soaps, creams, spa treatments and so on. resently launched their anti-aging natural skin care kit that men and women can use. I fully intend to try it out myself. It’s called ‘Infinite’.

But if you are like me that likes to keep things simple in between intensive special treatments, here are a few reminders of how to postpone or even prevent wrinkles:

  • Avoid squinting. The skin around the eyes are said to be delicate, with little elasticity. Either wear a head cover with a brim or invest in eye/sun glasses that enhances your facial structure.
  • Avoid touching the skin around your eyes except to gently clean the area. Any other touching should be gentle dabbing.
  • Eat anti-aging rich diet and drink lots of water. Eat vegan, especially greens, at least once a day.
  • Use natural or organic skin care ingredients on your skin.
  • Do exercise that increases metabolism and induces you to sweat more. 
  • Enjoy early morning sunshine.
  • Use on a regular basis, natural skin tightening ingredients, like rice water, yogurt, tomatoes, etc.
  • Avoid frowning and facial expressions, except smiling. The Asians hardly show their emotions on their faces and look how ageless they always appear.
  • Massage your skin rather than scrubbing it.
  • Learn more about natural Asian beauty routines and apply them.
  • Have a healthy sleep routine. It’s fine to sleep less than five hours or no sleep at all, for some days. Make sure you make up for those sleepless nights and don’t make it a habit. Eight hours sleep beginning from hours before midnight is highly recommended for general health and well-being.
  • Exfoliating your skin two or three times a week is also essential. I read you could use oatmeal, coffee grounds and baking soda — not powder — to remove dead skin cells from your skin.
