On owning one’s age: It’s just a number, which has nothing to do with emotional maturation or spiritual evolution. There are many people who in their 40s and 50s remain time-stamped; meaning they are mentally the same as when they had a baby or got married, and haven’t necessarily grown as much.

Latinas and aging, a good mix? I think Latinas are no different than other cultures because we all place such emphasis on our looks from a very early age. Looking sexy, and the desire to feel attractive are the reasons why the beauty industry receives billions of dollars from the Latina market.
