GENERAL HOSPITAL Star Laura Wright Proves Age Is Nothing But a Number With Inspirational Message to Fans

Tags:

Daytime star Laura Wright was in the middle of enjoying her summer vacation from playing Carly on GENERAL HOSPITAL but she took time out to celebrate getting older and issue a challenge to her fans! “To all my female friends of ‘age,’” she posted to Instagram. “Most of us are going through the next stage of our lives. We are at that age where we see the wrinkles, grey hair, extra pounds. Menopause has already shown up or just waiting around the corner. We see the pretty 25-year-olds and sigh. But we were 25, too, just like they will one day be our age.

“What they bring to the table with their youth and zest for life, we bring with our wisdom, experience, and good hearts,” she continued. “For all we’ve been through earning each grey hair… raising kids, bills and ills, and whatever else life throws at us, we are survivors. We are warriors. We are women. Like a classic car or fine wine. While our exterior may not be what it once was, it is traded for our spirit, our courage, and our strength to enter this chapter of our lives with grace and pride for all we’ve been through and accomplished. Never feel bad about getting older. It is a privilege denied to many.”

To all my female friends of "age''… Most of us are going through to the next stage of our lives. We are at that age where we see the wrinkles, grey hair, extra pounds. Menopause has already shown up or just waiting around the corner. We see the pretty 25-year olds and sigh. But, we were 25, too, just like they will one day be our age. What they bring to the table with their youth and zest for life, we bring with our wisdom, experience, and good hearts. For all we've been through earning each grey hair… raising kids, bills and ills and whatever else life throws at us, we are survivors… we are warriors… we are women. Like a classic car or fine wine. While our exterior may not be what it once was, it is traded for our spirit, our courage and our strength to enter this chapter of our lives with grace and pride for all we've been through and accomplished. Never feel bad about getting older. It is a privilege denied to many. 💕 Ladies, I challenge you to copy and paste with your picture and age. Age: 48 in September

She then challenged her female fans to copy and paste her status with their own picture and age, proudly adding that she herself is turning 48 in September. And proving that age is nothing but a number, Wright has found a new lease on life happily finding love with GH castmate Wes Ramsey (Peter) after her divorce and continuing to raise her two beautiful children, Lauren and John. And don’t forget starring as Carly Corinthos on GH where she continues to earn critical acclaim and Daytime Emmy nominations (taking home the gold in 2011)! Wright is not only aging gracefully, but gorgeously. Such an inspiriation!
