It’s not macedonian, but do you remember Snow-White’s step-mother? And her nightmare to grow old and ugly? The dream of being ageless can easily be understood, (although her malice can’t). However, with or without tricks, every person in this world goes from silky smooth skin to having wrinkles, from having a great looking body to loosing flexibility or even gaining weight, from having energy all day to getting to bed at 09:00 PM. The question is: When will I get old? and How to delay it? How to stay younger?
Growing old is a part of life. It’s the way of life saying that you have been given a chance to grow. Many people weren’t so fortunate to have this opportunity. Think about all of the people that left this planet way too early. Would they care about the way they looked or care about having perfect bodies and smooth skin? Some people would have given everything to get grey and old. Life is a precious thing and our time on this world is limited.
Beauty and image is something that is very important right now. Everywhere you look, you see all of these beautiful and great-looking celebrities in magazines, social media, TV etc. They all look gorgeous and happy. Now really, is that true life? Beauty eventually fades away. Character is something that is eternal, as a person’s charisma or character is remembered after death.
All these ads everywhere about plastic surgery, botox, beauty treatments, anti-aging creams, facial exercises and what not! Everybody is throwing away a fortune to keep themselves young and hip. However, that’s making them even older. Natural beauties like Monica Belluci, Nicole Kidman etc. tare extremely beautiful. They have never put anything on their faces except self-love. Which would be your first step towards looking and feeling younger.
Living is Macedonia is tough. Bad economy, along with political and financial crisis made life at times unbearable at times. Even in your 20’s you feel like you’re 40 years old, because you have to deal with really ‘grown-up’ problems. (Daily stress really goes for energy and ages, not only in Macedonia). Regardless of how ambitious you are, you can’t become the best version of yourself because of the lack of opportunities. You can be the smartest and most beautiful person in the world, but if you live in a place like Macedonia, you don’t have much chance to prove yourself to be what you want to be. That should motivate you even more to be courageous and bold. And never let anything like that spot you from achieving your dreams and goals. (Click for more Ageless Thinking)
Magic Ingredients – Women in Macedonia don’t really have money to go out and they don’t spend thousands on cosmetics surgery and luxury cosmetic brands. Since forever, women in this country have used natural remedies to keep their skin and hair healthy. Macedonia produces high quality honey so women use honey everyday on their skin and hair. That’s why Macedonian women have amazing skin and silky looks.
Another non-material thing for staying young is love. Men in this country say that if you love and take care of a woman, she will be forever young. In other words, keeping her happy and loved will make the woman more beautiful. You know what they say, happy wife means a happy life. That’s why marriages in Macedonia last longer and are taken very seriously. Men and women value their partners and stand together in everything.
The most valuable assets a woman can possess – no matter the place
This is not only for Macedonian people, it’s universal.
In fact, that means making yourself number one for you. Go out there, explore, live, love, laugh, inspire, treat everybody with kindness, be bold and never take ‘no’ for an answer. Make sure you become the best version of yourself. If you feel great, you’ll feel and look younger. Age is just a number and nothing more.
