Good Housekeeping TRIED & TESTED In others’ words... I’M INSPIRED! Looking back, 2016 was a complicated year in so many ways. And I see from my diary that one of my favourite quotations, to which I returned over and over again, was from a speech made by US President John F Kennedy back in 1959: The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis’. One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger – but recognize the opportunity. I love to collect uplifting quotes, jotting them down in the little notebook I carry everywhere. They’re my mantras to live by – and I’m not alone, as we discovered when we asked three women to reveal their own empowering sayings in this month’s feature…

lorraine kelly ‘finally i’m the woman i’m supposed to be!’

“In my 20s, 30s and 40s, I would never have worn sleeveless dresses” She’s been on our TV screens for more than 30 years but now, truly, this is Lorraine Kelly’s time. The Scottish star arrives at the Good Housekeeping cover shoot straight from her daily ITV show and bowls us all over – even before she hits hair and make-up! She is a walking, talking showcase of confidence, and exactly as you see on screen. There are no airs and graces, and talking to her is like catching up with an old friend. She shares with GH how she’s gone from a size 16 to a size 10, the reason for her new-found confidence, and why she wishes it had happened years ago... You’re looking in the best shape ever! What’s…

we’re all generation ageless now!

BRENDA BLETHYN, 70 ‘I’m thinking about doing another marathon – we all could!’ For award-winning actress Brenda, age has not limited her ambitions or her sense of style... Women of my age should dress however they want. Just go with what you enjoy. I had a flamboyant period when I was younger, but now I like simplicity, durability and classic style. I don’t go off on trends. I’m not flamboyant, but I do have a thing about shoes. I like Russell & Bromley. Once women reach 70, my tip would be a good haircut and good shoes. I don’t like to be scruffy – ever! I like to look smart, just like my latest character Ethel in Ethel & Ernest, an animated film based on the graphic novel by Raymond Briggs. I’m so proud…

‘I never understood why my schoolfriends wanted to be older than they really were’ With a big birthday approaching, the Countryfile presenter finds she is happier and more comfortable than ever... “I have always enjoyed being the age I am” Maybe I was a late developer, but I can remember being 14 years old and wondering why my peers at school wanted to be older than they were. I kept thinking, why are you wishing your teenage years away? Just enjoy being a kid because you have the rest of your life to be womanly. I still feel the same. I have always enjoyed being the age I am. I turn 40 this year and part of me does wonder how that has happened. In my head I’m 25, but I’m really aware that…

‘My husband tells me I look better than ever!’ She is following in the footsteps of her famous father, John Thaw, by starring in the new series of the Inspector Morse spin-off, Endeavour. And as Abigail reveals, she’s having the time of her life... Starting out as a young actor with a very famous parent wasn’t easy. But now I just feel immense pride. This year is the 30th anniversary of Inspector Morse, which starred my father, John Thaw. I realise now his cultural impact is so much wider than I ever appreciated. I’m not that far off the age he was when he died, which is a horrifying thought. Clichés are always based on truth, and now that I’m 51, those clichés are true. I now realise so much of the stuff…
