I just had to share this post because I found it so amazing. It reminded me that no matter how old we are, we are basically the same soul on the inside. It also showed me how beautiful you can look at every age. I wish I could age that gracefully and be that sophisticated at 60.
Amazing! Esp the 10 yo A series of pictures with the same model in different ages, everything done with amazing make-up and lighting.

That’s cool! Although I was a little taken aback by how she suddenly looked kind of trampy at 30.
hahaha yeah…what was that about….dirty thirty? ;-p
Perhaps it was a reflection of the panic that set in at the end of the 20s! LOL
Strangely I think I kinda breezed into 30 (or maybe I forget the panic)….looking back 30 seemed relatively easier than going past 25. Perhaps it was because when I was just 22 my older colleagues told me that once you hit 26 it’s downhill all the way…..what a terrible thing to say (to be honest it scared the crap out of me)…although I know they meant well and because they were 10 years older than me they probably felt it hard.
Today…30 seems so young to me……I guess it’s all relative and I am trying to live in the moment from now on and enjoy each year/day as it comes.
I don’t really think about getting older because I already feel like I’m old! Haha! I don’t know; I already often hang out with people older than me so it doesn’t seem like a big deal or that big a change. I’ll probably really miss my 20s when it’s over but I can’t imagine that anything is going to be horrible. I wouldn’t want to be always in my 20s, either! Just like how my teens were all right and pretty nice but I’m glad that’s over with.
I would say enjoy your twenties and try to have as much fun as you can. I remember I had so much energy in my twenties…could stay up all night and still be relatively fresh and raring to go the next day. To be honest my energy started to wane at age 33. Yup…it was that specific…33….don’t know why.
On the other hand as I get older, my curiosity increases and my capacity to learn increases. Mentally I feel more alert and I just want to read and read. There’s not enough time to read 🙂 I just want to devour as many books as I can.
Gosh, I’m already feeling so tired now, I can’t imagine what it’d be like for me when I’m in my 30s and 40s! Haha!
Strangely I feel like I read more when I was younger. Maybe I didn’t read stuff that was as intelligent but I definitely did read more. These days I seem to fritter so much time away on Facebook and Twitter it’s not funny. I hope it’s something I will grow out of!
I have that problem too….sometimes we really need a digital holiday…for me that happens when I physically get away (i.e. no internet connection)..I found for me it’s good to rest the eyes and look at some green. The internet and all it’s social devices is just so alluring. I hardly write in my journal using a pen anymore.
Definitely know what you mean! Sometimes I need the Internet to actually STOP working to be able to take a break.
Writing about my experiences make the experience feel more ‘lived’. I also blog to keep a record of how I was feeling at the time. It’s a sort of journal like thing for me. I also like declaring my dreams out loud with words. It’s a reminder to myself. On a morbid note…if I die…at least my family and friends will know how I felt …to some extent. Sometimes it’s easier to tell people you care through blogs/writing then in person. I am not as eloquent in person.
Agreed! I am horrendous when it comes to actual conversations. I express myself much better when it’s all written down, and I always have the thought that someone will read my entries sometime in the future, and that they should know something about me.
I also keep a written journal but I’ve just noticed that most of the year has gone by and I haven’t even filled half of it yet. It’s disgraceful… sometimes I just get so lazy and forget to write, or sometimes I blog about stuff and can’t be bothered to write it down as well. It’s really a habit I should break!
And also I think I should make a habit of exporting my blog entries so I have copies on a hard drive or something.
It must be that ‘Scorpio’ characteristic in us …we are so intense ;-)….from your twitter I see you’re a November baby too?
Yes I am! I love being a Scorpio. Even though I don’t actually know what that means.
I love being a Scorpio too….just seems cool….although I don’t sting. The part about being secretive is true for me….we’re supposed to be loyal, unyielding and magnetic as well 😉
LOL I don’t know about unyielding and magnetic! And it’s strange but I’m not sure if I’m secretive? I mean, there are definitely things that I keep to myself but they aren’t really secrets as such, they’re more like the things that NO ONE would tell anyone anyway!
