Christie Brinkley faces 67 with a ready mind and body View this post on Instagram A post shared by Christie Brinkley (@christiebrinkley) In an interview with Fox, Christie Brinkley discussed what it\u2019s like reaching 67 after a modeling career like hers. In response to the question, \u201cWhat\u2019s one thing that has been amazing for you about turning 67?\u201d Brinkley replied, \u201cI\u2019m just so full of gratitude for each and every day. I\u2019ve always been that way, but I think the older you get, the more you realize how precious each day is. You know, I really dedicate myself to making sure that I really enjoy my day as much as I possibly can and make time for friends. With age comes a real abundance of gratitude and awareness of just how lucky we are.\u201d In her view, as that number goes up, she just has another year to feel grateful for.

The interviewer wished to discuss, \u201cOn days when you don\u2019t feel so confident, what do you do to feel better about yourself?\u201d To this, Brinkley replied, \u201cI count my blessings. You know, despite exercising and a quicker than I anticipated recovery (from hip replacement surgery), I\u2019m having a hard time getting my jeans shut. The other day I was like, "Oh my gosh, even my PJ\u2019s are getting tight around the middle." But I just simply do smaller portions and stay moving.

I\u2019ll try those on to see where I\u2019m at. If I fit in those, I feel good. And when they\u2019re too tight, it\u2019s OK, too. At first, I was a little surprised because I\u2019ve been wearing a lot of sweat pants. But for me, it\u2019s smaller portions and a little more exercise. And I choose to focus on counting my blessings because once you start realizing all the things in your life that you\u2019re grateful for, it becomes no big whoop.\u201d What does the future hold with \u2018Sports Illustrated\u2019? Brinkley\u2019s time with Sports Illustrated began in the late \u201870s. Since then, she broke records and went on to work with other big names such as Covergirl. At the end of the day, her resume includes 500 magazine covers. So, it can be understood that when asked if she\u2019d model with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, Brinkley answered, \u201cHmm, I doubt it. I feel like, been there, done that. I think when I put on my bathing suit again, I want to also have a snorkel and go diving, see the fish.\u201d View this post on Instagram A post shared by Christie Brinkley (@christiebrinkley) But fans and followers can still see her in flattering and uplifting photos. Her swimsuit photos in particular frequently go viral. Doing so comes with a double dose of rewards, which Brinkley explains as \u201cI post these pictures because I hear from women my age all the time that say, \u2018Thank you for changing the way people think about the numbers.\u2019 Back in the day, numbers represented something. I remember people thinking that after 30, you should never wear your hair past your shoulders or your hemline needed to hover your knee caps.\u201d View this post on Instagram A post shared by Christie Brinkley (@christiebrinkley) She followed up with wisdom she\u2019s accumulated from her particular life experience: \u201cI\u2019ve always found those rules so limiting. Everybody\u2019s different, everybody\u2019s unique. But it\u2019s like telling a gymnast she can\u2019t do flips past a certain age. It doesn\u2019t make sense. If you\u2019ve got great legs, show them. If there\u2019s something about yourself that you really love, celebrate that. Don\u2019t be controlled by those numbers.\u201d She may not model with Sports Illustrated in the near future, but Brinkley still has a lot she wants to give followers, and is already providing that in the form of empowering wisdom.
