Veteran Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwo, is celebrating her 64th birthday today, September 14.
To mark her new age, the thespian turned evangelist shared adorable photos of herself on her social media pages and expressed gratitude to God for another year.
In her caption, Ozokwo shared an important life lesson that she’s learned so far in life.
The sexagenarian stated that as one ages, they come to realize that life is not about who or what they have acquired, but rather about the people they have been able to bless with their existence.
“As you grow older, you start to understand more and more that life is not about what you look like or what you own, it’s all about the person you have become and the people you have blessed”. She wrote.
A while ago, Patience Ozokwo took to social media to address those who express concern about her aging appearance.
The veteran in an Instagram post stated that she is not afraid of getting old because life is fleeting so it’s better to fully enjoy your years on earth.
According to her, some people go the extra mile to cover up the fact that they are aging but she personally doesn’t need anyone’s validation about her looks.
“When did old age stop being a blessing? People do all manner of stuff to cover up aging – good for them! I own my age and experience with my full chest and count it an enormous blessing.
“Comments like: She now looks so old, She don old suddenly, She don old finish, Ahaa Mama what happened, Make me smile.
Aging is not unattractive or undesirable.
Life is fleeting. Enjoy the years you’ve been blessed with fully. I am not afraid to look/be old. I am not worried about being in any exclusive league or being validated by people’s opinion. Respect the elderly”. She wrote.
