Dreams. We all have them.
Something that makes our heart dance and our soul sing. Something that we know we were born to do. But how many of us have given up on our dreams? How many times have we made excuses and justified not following our hearts desire? How many times have someone said to us, you’re crazy! You’d give up XYZ to go and do that? How many times have we passed up opportunity for comfort or “being safe?”
Having a “great job” has it benefits as well as its’ traps if you are not pursuing your passion. Giving up on your dreams is a sure way to age and have those horrible emotions depression and regret visit your door. Don’t let it happen!
So with that said, I have embarked on a new adventure! One of my dreams has always been to empower and inspire women. Having come from a less than positive childhood, I have always felt the need to empower women to believe that they are powerful, beautiful, sexy women, who have total control over their destiny. …. .at any age, size, shape, or color. There are many stereotypes and assumptions made about people and with the constant media stream of what is considered beautiful and acceptable, judgments and labels abound. One label that has emerged, hardly new but more used now, is the label “cougar.” This label is being used for women, over the age of 40 who enjoy going after what they want, are confident and secure in who they are and have the courage to go after it,….Oh, and what they tend to like is the company of younger men. I love that!
Unfortunately, the label has become a negative one, with a horrible TV show in past years called “The Cougar” and the recent addition to the fall line-up “Cougartown” with Courtney Cox. I’ve been watching it and at least every women in it is not a sleeze or desperate, older women on the prowl….but it’s close. The jury is still out on this one.
My take on the whole thing is why do women have to be labeled if they date younger men? If they are confident, know what they want, are independent and go after it…why the animal label? I’m sure a man came up with that one!
So, with all that said, besides producing the “TV ArtScapes” relaxation nature series for HD and big screen TVs, my latest endeavor takes me to producing my own women’s news magazine show. Granted I have taken advantage of this term ”cougar” for part of the title, “The Cougar News,” but only in that I want to change the perception and make it a positive one. One that means a women is confident, happy, secure, independent, beautiful and knows what she wants, and personally, I don’t think that’s a bad thing, Frankly, It’s about time.
So to all the women out there, at any age….you are Wise, Powerful, Beautiful…and Youth is in your Passions and Dreams. Go and Get it!Show 1 – The Cougar News Hunter vs Hunted Getting Ready to Launch 40s Goddess Veronica Crystal Young www.tvartscapes.com www.crystaleyesinc.com
