#30PlusAppreciation: Lebo Mashile gives thumbs-up to redefining aging

The #30PlusAppreciation is currently making the rounds on Twitter with people over the age of 30 posting their beautiful pictures.

Poet, actor and author, Lebo Mashile, says it is good to see women redefining how to age.

We are moving to an era where people are just ageless, where there are no boundaries to who you can be, how you can express yourself, how you can express yourself and look as you age.

Lebo Mashile, poet, actor and author

Lebo Mashile, poet, actor and author

Mashile says she has learned to trust herself and listen to her instincts as she grows.

It changes how we value our lives. It changes the people you choose to interact with. It changes the premium that you place in your life - my thoughts and feeling are much more important to me.
