I discovered something this weekend. I discovered that spending time on yourself like doing your hair or make up is an easy thing to help you feel good about yourself. Usually I don't blow dry my hair or do make up, I don't have time or I don't want to share my make up with my daughters. Yeah, I'm mean like that. I also have never seen the point to doing anything when I am not trying to impress anyone or I am just saying at home.
This weekend I had a little trade fair for Tupperware and I got dressed up, not fancy but did my hair and make up. I was exhausted, cranky and felt fat which was exasperated by not finding the shirt I wanted to wear. I didn't want to dress up but because of the way I was feeling I felt like I needed everything to make me look presentable. What I discovered and also surprised me was that I actually felt great and just looking put together gave me some much needed confidence.
I am going to remember the feeling and do it more!
