Too Old For That

Sometimes things happen or words are said that make me want to say something back but… I just leave it, simply because I don’t do drama. Instead, I write…

Most of my poetry doesn’t get to see the daylight as it’s just for me to release what’s going on in my head but in some cases, the frustration is just too much and I have to share it.

…TOO OLD FOR THAT…

you can’t go out every weekend…
you’re TOO OLD FOR THAT!
you can’t wear this short dress…
you’re TOO OLD FOR THAT!
dating a 30 year old?
you’re TOO OLD FOR THAT!
why would you dye your hair blue!
you’re TOO OLD FOR THAT!
but… I’m just making myself happy
am I TOO OLD FOR THAT?

I have dyed my hair the other day – I went from silver to pastel pink. I know what most people are thinking – she’s almost 40, she’s in a professional job, she can’t be taken seriously looking line this! and most of all… she’s too old for that!
Do you know what my response is? – Give me a break!!!
If you want to dye your hair – do it!
If you love someone younger (or older) – so what!?! Love them!!!
Wear what you want to wear! – long or short; tight or not; colourful or black.

We have only one life and I think that at the end of our way we’d want to be able to say that we actually made the best of it.

so… as long as you’re not hurting anyone – Be happy! Be fulfilled! and BE YOURSELF!
…because you’re NEVER TOO OLD FOR THAT!

As the art journal, I used an old book called ‘Stories for girls’ (yeah, I know… talking about feminism…).
Various number stencils from A.B. Studio were the perfect choice for this design.
Colours are as usual Tattered Angels.
