What is mature femininity for me? It seems to me that constant curiosity about the world. This is not at all calm, as some think it is peace, that it is wisdom, just the opposite. It seems to me that one must be more naïve and naive, look for that return to childhood. It seems to me that older women, if we stop this naivety, it is this “value”, because at the moment when we are not naïve, we become cynical, and cynicism is old age. What is my strength? Sometimes it seems to me that I am completely powerless and I think that this is my strength. Strength is wisdom, reading is above all, it is catching catching “all the fragrances of the world”, which during life grew, catching colors, remembering all of this, keeping it in you, sharing that memory with others. This is the strength.
A 50-year-old woman is above all a free woman. She does not have to. He does not have to use words such as: should, must, be. He can make choices. He may or may not want to. She is smart, experienced. He does not have to like it if he does not like it. He does not have to seek anybody’s favor, but he can give his favor. When I turned 40, I thought that this is the best period in my life – between the 40’s and 50’s, but that’s not true. After the 50th it started to be a lot, much better, and now I turned 60, although I should not talk about it, because this is a +60 project, only +50 and, for example, I got married. Some things are left behind and these are the things that once determined us. What is my strength? Probably the ability to rise from falls, because I fell down quite often and put in dangerous situations, but I knew how to withdraw from them. And I think that’s also my biggest advantage.
Femininity consists of a whole range of various “beings”, but for me it is above all harmony, it is peace and acceptance, acceptance of myself and joy above all. And such a very, very special “flash in the eye”. If a woman has this “glint in her eye” regardless of her age, she is always very attractive, she is sexy, she is above all happy and she can see that she lives and enjoys life. This is such an essence for me. And the paradox of this is that the woman usually the things I was talking about, that it comes to her after 50 years. At least in my case, it was that after the age of 50 all of these things suddenly got together and I felt such inner power.

Thinking about the magic 50, I think what can give me strength today. For sure such strength gives me self-education, awareness, development and, above all, and that I create my own reality. I really like the motto that Anna Dymna called her foundation: “despite everything”, that is, although sometimes I am physically weaker, it’s the awareness that I have to do something about it. I am sometimes weaker emotionally, I try to influence it and look for external strong stimuli. I still want to think that not what was only what is best in front of me.
What is mature femininity for me? I think that, first of all, learning to accept yourself at a mature age. It is very difficult and many women certainly can not handle it. You have to go your long way to accept yourself. When we do, we get wings, we start looking around us. We start to look for inspiration and look for strength. First – to feel in harmony with yourself, secondly – to help others, because this is an incredibly important thing. It gives us strength and drives us. I am here to support The Inner Power, to show women that maturity, this famous 50th is not a grave, a coffin, the end of life and that we have no place. We have! Just today, I believe that women over 50 have a new, fantastic place in society and can do a lot of good for themselves, for their families, but also for others around. They already have experience, they are beautiful, they are attractive, they can sell it and they can do a lot of good. I am healthy, I am happy, I accept myself with all my faults, I learned it too. It seems to me that this is my strength … and a smile.
I envy women who have inner power because I do not belong to them. A wonderful project by Dorota Goldpoint, who invited me, for which I am very grateful to her. I am grateful that I can participate in it, but because it has given me homework to think about it, it is just a little worse with it. If I could answer this question, in fact honestly, it is my Lady’s strength after the 50th or mature woman that seems to be in such a more calm understanding of the world around, greater tolerance. I do not want to say wisdom, because I’m probably not smart yet. And so I envy the ladies who are so bold to talk about it. I believe they are, but I can not do it. I wish you ladies, especially those over 50 with all my strength … a lot of strength.
In 1906, a Warsaw courier wrote such a message: a 52-year-old woman was trampled on a suburban suburb of a horse-drawn carriage in Krakow. Since then, it’s been a little bit, and my intention to participate in this project was to show that something has changed since 1906. We are creative, full of strength and have something to say. Women who are surrounded by people who are favorable, kind and joyful are also joyful. Women who are surrounded by toxic people, bad men – they are said to be strong women. I would wish that I would not be a strong woman, and what creates me, my strength is adversity. I would like these adversities to be used for something creative in life.
The Inner Power project is a tribute that I give to mature women. I would like to be a discreet medium, which will be an element of the transmission of important content. I invited to the project well-known and valued women who will talk about their struggles in life, raise important topics, and also tell what is their strength and what they derive from their power. 50 years is an important, crucial moment in the life of every woman, I am lucky to meet people, I have met many important women in my life whom I owe a lot to, and which thanks to this project I would like to thank. Maturity is beautiful when you understand it. My desire is to bring and strengthen in the social consciousness the strength and enormous internal power that mature women have in them. The symbol of the Inner Power project is a woman – a tree, to have beautiful flowers and fruits, must have good, healthy roots. Women 50 plus are just like that, Their strength, power flowing from internal energy allows you to survive even the most difficult situations. Power is in us.
