Why Renee Zellweger gets it (and why she’d be my ideal client)
Let me start this post by saying I don’t care two hoots about whether Renee Zellweger got plastic surgery or not. If she did, she’s one of a gazillion women who’ve gone down that road.
And I’ll be the first to admit I’ve stood in front of the bathroom mirror and wondered when I should start saving to get my eyelids done.
Our society values a youthful appearance, and given the work she does, there’s more than a little pressure to keep all parts tight and wrinkle-free.
But since none of us own her face (or the rest of her body) we really have no right to judge. Move along, nothing here to see on that front.
BUT, there is something I’d love to know more about. And it was this part of her response statement that caught my eye:
“I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.”
Despite her star power, she is, in many ways, just like the rest of us midlife ladies.
We run around in our “be more, do more” world until we just can’t any more.
We figure out that there is a lot of life we’re missing out on.
We decide to rest and learn how to say no.
We become aware of the chaos and choose different things.
I love that Renee is taking action to live a healthier, less stressful, and more fulfilling life. Regardless of how or if these changes affect your looks, there is no downside to increasing your self-awareness, improving your health and making choices that are more in alignment with the life you want to live.
