Friendships. Antiques. Fine wine. Denim. Artisan cheese. Handcrafted leather. Cast iron. Fruit trees. Do you know what else gets even better with age? Of course you do — it’s Black women!

It’s not just what we see in the mirror — although, yes girl, melanin is the gift that keeps on giving! We know we’re aging beautifully because of how we feel. If there's one thing I know for sure at age 55, it's that we become better, richer, fuller versions of ourselves over the years. Confident enough to go for it. Wise enough to know better. Caring enough to empathize with those whose life journeys don’t resemble our own. Positive and hopeful enough to know joy comes in the morning. Experienced enough to know what matters now. Creative and curious enough to see new possibilities. Reflective enough to stitch patchwork stories from the fabric of life and use them to bring warmth to others. 

How will you celebrate yourself, and the loveliness that gets better with time? What makes you feel beautiful at the age and stage you’re at right here and now? Enter our Sisters Aging Beautifully contest and let us know for a chance to win a $500 gift card or other prizes.

The entry period for this contest is now over. Be sure to read Sisters every Tuesday to learn about the latest contests, giveaways and events.

Upload a photo of yourself from a recent year that makes you feel connected to that energy, capturing a mood or a moment that gives you life. We’ll judge entries based on inspiration, enthusiasm and creativity. And, while we know you’re damn fine and only too happy to produce proof that Black don’t crack, this isn’t a contest based on appearance. We’re celebrating attitude.
