How To Overcome The Fear Of Ageing Without Having Botox

You know when you begin to hear those neggy thoughts about ageing scratching at the door like a dog who wants to come and sleep in your bedroom for the night, but unlike a cute puppy that loves you exactly as you are, this presence at your door wants you to beat yourself up for getting older? Well here's how I'm working on telling these thoughts; "Good night, hope you sleep well and f**k off, no you can’t get a cuddle."

A few years ago I boldly stated that I wouldn’t have Botox.

I am the first to admit that may have been a little naive and easy to say when you have a wrinkle free face. It’s a bit like declaring that you won’t have pain relief while giving birth – you just don’t know till you’re feeling the pain.

So now that I have got wrinkles, how do I feel about it?

Well…I can sense negative inner dialogue scratching at the door like a dog that wants to come and sleep in your bedroom for the night, but unlike a cute puppy that loves you exactly as you are, this presence at my door wants me to beat myself up for getting older (I mean seriously, I’m thinking how ridiculous that sounds as I write it) but I hate the thought of that as much as I hate the thought of being disturbed in my sleep, so I don’t hang on to those thoughts for long and wish them a good night, sleep well and f**k off, no you can’t get a cuddle.

I still don’t want to Botox and I explain why in this video.

Let’s be clear though, this isn’t really about the Botox, it never did anything wrong and it’s not to blame, nor is anyone who has it or gives it. This decision runs a lot deeper for me.

In this video I explore one of our deepest fears, can you guess what it is?

Plus I challenge you to get clear on what you really think and feel about ageing so that if you want to feel young and beautiful everyday with or without an anti ageing treatment, you can.

Hey, I'm Lydia Kimmerling I am MAD, CRAZY, PASSIONATE about helping you to create a life you're super excited to wake up to. Being happy...ish, inspired...ish and fulfilled...ish is never quite enough, is it? When you feel like there is "more" out there for you, it's because there is. A life where you can't remember the last time you worried, stressed or doubted yourself and your friends ask you "What's your secret?" because you GLOW, SPARKLE and SHINE. That can be you and I will show you how. I got my first television job at 17, ran my own restaurant in Panama at 22, taught Hip Hop in Cornwall at 26, was cabin crew for Virgin Atlantic at 28, coached CEO's on confidence at 29, then at 30 took the leap as a certified life & business coach with The International Coaching Federation to launch my very own transformational company called The Happiness Explorer. I am a master of change, so I can tell you that there is NEVER really anything to fear, but has it always been easy? NO! I have blocks, down days and self-doubt too, life doesn't stop throwing you curve balls, it's how you catch the ball and throw it back that changes. Plus, you never know until you try, right? At 32, I now know what the key is to waking up every single day excited about the life you live. It is to know yourself inside and out and to love every part of who you are.The more you know yourself, the more of you there is to love and the more you love yourself, the more you want to give yourself a life you love. The question is…What do you really want?
