Paltrow linked to a Goop blog post titled “On Approaching 50” where she explained how she came to “accept” her aging body.
“My body, a map of everyday evidence, is less timeless. . Silver hair and fine lines,” she wrote.
Paltrow will mark her landmark birthday on Tuesday.
The Goop founder went on to say that while she does her best to “strive for good health” and a long life, she accepts the changes her body experiences over time.
“I accept the marks and the loose skin, the wrinkles. I accept my body and let go of the need to be perfect, look perfect, defy gravity, defy logic, defy humanity. I accept my humanity,” Paltrow expressed.
She wrote that she is ready to “transition” into her 50s and addressed her past mistakes, but says she wouldn’t go back in time to correct them.
The “Shakespeare in Love” actress also opened up about her long list of plans for the future.

“I’d like to slow down. I’d like to step back a little… I’d like to cook dinner more. I’d like to see misunderstandings turn into understandings,” Paltrow added.
The 49-year-old actress has two children with her ex-husband Chris Martin – daughter Apple, 18, and son Moses, 16.

She concluded her essay with a dedication to her children.
“I think of my children, now old enough to remember this ‘big’ birthday of mine in their own adulthood,” Paltrow wrote.
“I won’t really know what it was like turning 50 until much later, when I can reflect from a higher position, maybe in your 50s, full and broken hearts simultaneously (what life is like).”
