Dulling Your Shine
At times we get so caught up in our issues that we let feelings get in the way. How we look then suffers as a result. Don't believe me? Picture the last time you were angry or stressed out. Did you walk out of the house with just anything on? Were you too upset to do your hair? Have you done any of these things before? If so, it proves that emotions can get the best of us. It is only because we let them. But there is a remedy and it is called Looking Good.
Putting time and effort into your appearance speaks volumes. It shows the world what you think of yourself. So stop rushing through your mornings! Get up a little earlier to invest in your look. The baby can wait. Mommy needs some time to put on her makeup or stick some extra pins into that bun. You matter, ladies. Looking good shows your self perception. This cannot be stressed enough. Don't get this confused with masking how you truly feel. Getting over the hump by putting more into your look only means that you are overcoming negative emotions. This is a good thing.
If you are having a bad day, grab the best clothes out of your closet. Pick out your suits, trousers, blazers, etcetera. Choose how you want to be displayed today. Do you want to be corky, sassy or cool? Give yourself some options. All too often, are there women saying 'I don't care' in their appearance and do it without verbalizing. Let's stop this chronic behavior, please.
Seeing that you are a work of art, treat yourself like a masterpiece. Throwing pieces together does not always work. Get to a point where you become a precious diamond. Handle your body with care and dress it accordingly. Bad days come and go, but they do not have to dictate gloomy appearance. That is a lie. You are better than what happening to you.
Yes, there are times when positivity seems impossible. Call it a forced habit. Push passed the unthinkable. This will help you trump negativity. You can get over whatever you deem possible. There were days when I used to go to work in heels and a red lip just because I wanted a better mood. My motto was not to look how I felt. That was me pushing forward and you can too!
With this said, sift through the outfits you already picked out. Now, plan your looks for the week. Organization will make life a little easier. If you want to switch things up, that is ok. This step will simply be your foundation. Learn to stop dulling your shine because it will only bring you down. Everyday is an excuse to look good. When you realize this, you can become your best self!
