A little Friday Strength AND Spice to start your weekend…
Have you ever had one of those “blah” days? You know those days that are so-so, below average, just not really exciting, and lonnngg!
Yesterday was one of those for me! It’s been a long week, full of stress, crazy schedules, and unforeseen events. So when I got out of bed yesterday, I was praying it was Friday … but nope! Oh my gosh, one more day and wow was it VERY long and “blah!”
I spent most of the morning in a little downside emotional HOLE just KNOWING the long day I was about to have. Just thinking about it … made it worse.
Until… I pulled my big girl panties up and PUT MY FACE ON!
It’s amazing how something so simple can completely change your mindset! Before it was a top not, yoga pants (not even cute ones), and a clean face that I was slumped down in my office chair sitting In. My look and my feelings matched!
Don’t get me wrong, most of the time this is my favorite look, well cute yoga pants at least! BUT not when your mood is down! No Bueno! So I forced myself to change it up even though I wasn’t feeling it just for the possibility that my mood might change in the same direction!
I got dressed, threw on some cute earrings, still a super casual outfit (to be comfy for the long day ahead) and I PUT MY FACE ON! Threw on some cute shades and went back to work! Total mind change! Total mood shift! Game changer of my day.
I have a girlfriend that works from home. She does sales. But every morning she gets her coffee and gets ready as if she was going to work. Technically she is! Now she doesn’t have to because she sees absolutely no one all day long! She puts her make up on, gets dressed, even curls her hair some days. Now I can guarantee you her sales are higher than the girl who stays in her pajama pants as she works all day! Dressing For what you want subconsciously works! Because you LOOK AND now FEEL the part!
It’s AMAZING the difference of how you look can change how you feel! If you think that you look good, you’re happy. It changes how happy you are inside, your perception of yourself, and lifts your spirits. It’s a proven fact.
Down in a slump? In a crappy mood? Having a blah day? Girl, grab your favorite SOMETHING and PUT IT ON!
Want to feel sexy, grab your favorite pair of panties and bra! Want to feel glamorous, grab your favorite knock out dress! I don’t care if you just put it on to go get the mail from your mailbox! Put it on and feel that way! Want to feel powerful, grab your favorite pair of heels. Want to feel like a diva, grab your favorite pair of shades, throw them on, put some tunes on and jam like the rockstar you feel you are! Most importantly girls put your face on! Now I don’t care if that’s chapstick to you, for the girl that doesn’t like makeup maybe, put something on that makes YOU FEEL!
Even though I’ve got a relaxing and chill day, I want it to be FUN its Friday! I’m having lunch at the cowboy stadium with a girlfriend then I’ve got some orders to fill and a lease to sign before the kids get out of school…and I’m going to FEEL GOOD about myself today doing it! Today I’m CHOOSING TO PUT MY FACE on! Are you?
Happy weekend mom queens!
