AE: Tatiana, there are so many facets to you! Where do you give of yourself most?
T: It's hard to say, since the beginning of my journey I have explored many professions. So if we're talking about a career, almost everything I have done, I've started from scratch and reached quite a high level. Whether it was directing, investing, real estate, hotel management or modeling. The main rule was that it had to be something I loved.
AE: Among women, it is customary to be silent about your age, but you need to shout about it! You are 59 years old, and you look amazing, what is your secret of youth?
T: I've been going at it a long way, maybe since I was 20. The most important thing I realized is that our beauty and youthfulness are directly related to loving ourselves, our thoughts and feelings, our bodies, every cell of it. The main thing is not to confuse it with "selfishness". In general, for me, the basis of life is: "Everything external is a reflection of my inner state."
AE: Let's talk about ageism.
T: As for ageism, I've never felt it on myself or in the company of the people I talk to. Whether you can call it luck, I don't know. I have a favorite quote by Marina Tsvetaeva on this subject: "No man has yet judged the sun for shining on another."
AE: What is natural aging to you?
T: For me natural aging is maturity, the transition to the next stage. This etymology seems very important to me: each word has its own energy component, if we say "to get thinner", it comes from the word "thin", but "slim" is a completely different meaning. And our brain, our cellular level, catches information in a different way. Be careful in your desires, make wishes correctly!
AE: What is your inspiration?
T: I can get inspiration from everything beautiful that surrounds me: nature, works of art, a child's smile. So first of all I look for inspiration in myself. My inspiration is what makes me happy.
