Advanced Style Documentary!

I watched the documentary “Advanced Style” which is about a man, Ari Seth Cohen, who set up a blog that he photographed and interviewed stylish older woman that he saw around New York. Ari started the blog to inspire people to look at aging in a new light, he has beautiful images showing strong stylish senior citizens. His blog has also been made into a book and also the documentary film I watched. Ari said that young woman could also learn from the documentary “the Advanced Style ladies are confident, bold, expressive and incredibly vital. I hope younger woman are inspired by their freedom and individuality” which I agree with!

These woman have grown old and glamorously which sounds like the way I would love to. These woman tell their life stories and it’s great to learn there wisdom. The woman know themselves which is the key to style! This documentary shows there’s always something to look forward to at any age.

Stop Comparing yourself to others

“Comparison is the thief of joy”- Theodore Roosevelt

3cb3a7b42dc8348d02925e4819dfbdec

 

Comparing yourself to others is such a common thing I think it human nature! Self confidence can be one of those things that people may have lots of or be lacking. I am not surprised because social media has become a major thing in our life’s and your seeing different types of things and comparing your life to there’s. With social media, comparing ourselves to others, it’s in our face now more than ever before!

When we were younger you would remember coming home saying “Everyone else in my class has a phone why can’t I?” Or “So and So has it, why can’t I?”… and I remember my mother saying “Don’t compare yourself to them because your not them!” And that has stuck in my head, always! Now a days its things like your cup of tea in bed to her cocktail by the beach,the toned gym stomach to your jelly belly its things more like job titles and success, income levels, looks, lifestyle and house size that we compare ours to. The thing is we see there happy moments behind that nobody shares there bad times they want everyone to see there “happy” moments! Nobody boasts about bad things, do they? No!

There is loads of things you can compare yourself to others about but it’s bad thoughts that bring you down and takes joy away from your life and making you feel not good enough as a result. With these bad thoughts and comparing we should turn them to positive even making goals in your life but it’s all about, once your happy! You will notice that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side!

So, relax.. take a step back, think about what you have going on in your life. You have made it this far, made your own pathway, career and relationship. GIVE YOURSELF A PAT ON THE BACK!  Don’t let someone else’s choices bring you down, think of your own and be positive! You are awesome!
