If you are an ordinary woman, chances are pretty high that you will spend most of your 20s making mistakes and trying to find yourself. It is an era of insecurity and questionable decisions — a time of terrible internships, and bad decisions wedded to bad relationships, and confusing emotions.
If you can escape these years without making any life-altering mistakes, like marrying a psychopath, getting jailed out of love triangle or ruining your professional reputation, you are doing pretty good.
On the flip side, however, your 30s are the time for self-fulfillment. By this point, you most probably are done doing duty with ‘sponsors’ and you have established your career. If you are an organised woman then you are somewhat solid on the path you hope to create in life.
You are at the point where you are ready to stop taking nonsense from others and start kicking ass. You are entering a pretty amazing era and therefore you must, too, quit doing stuff that is either expected from teenagers or those who believe they are past their sell-by dates. You should quit dating college boys, too.
One of the major mistakes that women make is neglecting your body. Simply because you finally nailed someone down to be your husband is no excuse to walk around with a body that resembles a fast food mascot!
Okay, we all agree that metabolisms has a habit of playing real nasty games on your body, but simply because you think you are getting comfortable in life by meeting the basic needs and contemplating the human wants is not a valid reason to stop taking care of your figure once you reach a certain age.
If you hate your hips or you are missing your old petite figure, hit the gym and reclaim your sexy body back.
Men, too, will notice and give you the attention you deserve. The amount of efforts put in looking after your body will be directly proportional to the men’s interest in you. So if you are still wondering why certain girls get all the attention at a party, then wonder no more. Talk control.
There is another ultimate that you must not make, if we are to take you seriously. Ladies, drop those cheap perfumes. There is a reason why high-end beauty products cost four times as much as those items that you buy from hawkers on the streets.
There is no way you expect to dance the Friday night away and expect the cheap mascara to hold on.
In case you did not know, these cheap perfumes are an anathema to sweat. Once the two mix, there is such a ‘violent’ disagreement that you end up smelling like you stepped on two week old human waste.
Smelling like manure
Thing is, smell nice. No serious man wants a woman who smells like manure. If you cannot afford a quality perfume or beauty product for that matter, stick to being natural. Men are still turned on by women’s who remain true to their natural ways; there is something mystic about it. Just for avoidance of doubt, am not merely opining here, I have had men say so severally. Remember Bob Marley’s Natural Mystic
All I can say to the women above 30 and consider themselves sober and mature is that there are some indulgences in life that make a woman really feel like a woman, and at this point you have worked too hard and come too far to live without them. Bottom line is, always keep your eyes on the ball.
