I really didn’t want to go grocery shopping today. I really didn’t want to do many things today. It’s been a week…ugh.
Then something happened. I walked by a mirror and looked in it.
I didn’t like what I saw. What I saw was not inspiring. And I figured, if I don’t feel inspired or happy or motivated when I look at myself, how will others feel when they see me?
The kids have been argumentative all week (transition time back to school blah blah blah) and this wears me down. This reflected in the mirror.
I figured, I need to change my look. Change my attitude. So I did two things:
First, I put on real clothes instead of yoga pants and some athletic top.
Then, I snapped some selfies. And you know what?
I like me in these selfies.
Maybe I can hang on to this sentiment for the remainder of the day which will take me through dog walking, dog sitting, back from school chaos, dinner prep and battling traffic up to York for a hockey game.
Wish me luck.
