By Cindy Joseph, Founder and CEO of BOOM! by Cindy Joseph
Make-up artist Cindy Joseph, who's made up dozens of supermodels during her years in the fashion industry, created the first line of "pro-aging" cosmetics for women of all generations. She's also learned a lot about what makes life wonderful as we age. Here, Cindy (at left) shares some tips on how to make your life healthy, blissful and calm.
Believe In The Wonder of Your Life
You were excited to get older when you were 7, 15 and 19. "I'm 7 and 3/4!" "I am gonna be 16!" "Cant wait until I am 21!" We knew life was getting better. You can continue to believe life keeps improving as time passes.

Make Up Your Own Mind You’ve heard negative things about age your whole life. But the days that age meant ill health, weakness, giving up, being worthless are gone. This is a new era.And the science on aging has changed.. Educate yourself on new discoveries. All viewpoints about life and age are made up by humans. They are make-believe. You have the choice to make up any view you want. You are in charge of your points of view about what age is.
See "Aging" in a New Way Age is just another word for life. Aging is another word for living. You age from the minute you’re born, and you start living from the minute your are born. They are one in the same. Your desires, passion, hopes, dreams don't stop as years go by. They don't suddenly leave your being. They continue to grow, change and build. As you live, you are adding to your experiences, self knowledge, confidence and wisdom.
Stay Healthy or Get Healthy Whether they’re five or 50, no one is happy about their age when they are sick. If you have health challenges, use them to fuel your desire to get healthier. Look into all the possibilities to find vitality and energy. Leave no stone unturned. Try all avenues to get as healthy as you can with what you were given. People come and go, jobs come and go, as well as homes, money, family, friends, belongings. The only true guarantee is that you will be in the body you were given until it's time to go. Educate yourself on your body. It's the vehicle you live in all day, every day. We know more about how our cars function than we do about our own bodies. Learn about your body as if your life depended on it, because it does!
Trust Life Do you remember deciding to be born as a human on the planet earth? It happened TO you, right? No matter your religious beliefs, we all know we did not make it happen. So if you are here, something got you here. That same "something" will also take you away. So why not trust life. We are not privy as to the why's and how's. The trust brings calm and a greater love of life.
Change the Graph We were given a graph of life in the shape of a mountain, with a peak and downhill. Flip it over into a V. Life begins at the bottom and continues to expand as time passes. You collect experiences, self knowledge, understanding and knowledge of others. Your world expands as life continues, nothing diminishes. Remember you can only add to your life.
Pursue What Pleases You If you go for success, pleasure is 50-50. If you go for pleasure success is guaranteed.
