*Aging is one of those things we all must do. But we all have a choice as to how we do it.

Media mogul and international icon, Oprah Winfrey has managed to maintain looking beautiful as she grows older. But she admits, the process is something she’s learned to embrace.

“People get all screwed up and afraid of aging when, in fact, every year should be a celebration,” she told Extra. “You should be celebrating every year that you are given. I don’t understand women lying about their age and everybody dreading getting older. It means you’re still here! […] To deny your age is to deny your life. I stand here 59 years old and so happy to claim every single part of the journey of those 59 years. All of death reminds us that aging and moving forward is so important.”

And you look good girl.
