I believe this is the “New Age of Aging”.
Pro-Aging is about living a life of “possibility” and “choice”; that is, choosing to be relevant and visible rather than to quietly disappear; choosing to challenge the challenges and to dispel the stereotypes. Choosing to express who we are, to be who we are and to dress as we want. Choosing to live as a reflection of our wisdom, our years of acquired knowledge, our intuitive instincts, our uniqueness, our creativity, our dreams; while celebrating and appreciating our individuality. Choosing to encourage and uplift each other; rather than to compete and judge.
I am a Pro-Age Advocate and Creator of the Instagram Page @the.pro.age.woman allowing me a platform to build this amazing community of fabulous formidable women..who want to share, inspire and uplift each other. It’s actually a passion project that’s enabled me to realize a life long dream..and it has taken me places I never thought it would. It’s been such an unexpected pleasant surprise.
During my years as a fitness and wellness professional, I began searching the internet for activewear and street styles for my workouts to nights out. While doing so, I came to the realization that there were no sites specifically targeted to the stylish, sophisticated, urban woman that DOES NOT just want to age gracefully; but, rather dares to age BOLDLY and FIERCELY.
So, it organically became my passion, which still remains to this day at the vibrant age of 66, to scour through various on line stores in an effort to locate edgy, chic fashions that could work for the older active woman.
That is how @uber.chic.over.60 and then @the.pro.age.woman came to be.
