How to Stay Relevant

A year ago today, the glamorous Barbie turned 50 and the whole world was watching (even me). And now, at 51, she’s barely an afterthought. So what happens to our sense of self-worth when the cameras go away? How can we feel attractive when no one seems to be looking? I ask these questions while navigating my own sex drought. And here’s what works for me: Refuse to be invisible. Stay social. Spray on cologne. Eat pasta. Do cardio. Volunteer.
