I saw something in myself that shocked me!….In every way, I was not taking care of myself. Mentally, I was dragging my feet and I saw it in my WARDROBE. I would get up, barely have enough time to get dressed and walk out the door any type of way. Come back home, eat, connect with Pat, go to sleep….repeat. I was looking pretty shabby to say the least and wearing a ton of black. My nails weren’t done, my hair was always pulled back, and I felt like I was just a body not really a soul aka a ZOMBIE —->
I was completely blind to all of this but I’m sure others could see it. It was very obvious! So, I decided that I didn’t want to live like that anymore and I was going to do something about it. I promised myself that I will always do my nails, my hair and I will dress as nice as I can no matter the day. I was even going to wear makeup and I was going to do that for myself! Maybe I was going to go as far as sipping some hot cocoa before bed and relaxing with a nice book ::gasps!::
This all seems so basic to the average person but I was barely doing any of this. Crazy isn’t it? So, I wanted to share with you my 5 days of self-care!
P.S. This is not a fashion post…
Day 1: My Favorite Outfit of the Day! Those shoes though…
Day 2: Sporting my new lipstick! Ruby Woo by MAC
Day 3: Rainy day, it was pretty hard to put any effort into my outfit..
Day 4: Brighter day! Another fav outfit…
Day 5: Nothing special here…but I felt good! (so I did my hair and nails)
This wasn’t easy for me especially when I wasn’t going anywhere or when it was a rainy day. I’m not a fashionista and I learned that I dressed according to how I FELT, but that week despite how I felt, I was going to “dress up” anyway. By the end I felt AMAZING! and I kept it going…..
Take care of yourself
