I challenged myself at the beginning of this week to stop being lazy about my outfits just because i have nowhere to go, and instead start getting dressed up in clothes that make me feel good about myself that day.
I still had ups and downs in my day…stresses over blog-related things not going the way i want, anxiety trying to sleep at night while my head’s too full of “What’s next? How do i succeed in what i try?”, self-doubt, frustrations, and hints of bitterness i had to figure out appropriately dealing with. But not nearly as much as has plagued me over the last several months. And i handled it all more quickly and efficiently.
I was surprised just how much more empowered i’ve been feeling with this simple task. By putting on clothes i love, and doing so for no apparent reason besides deciding i want to, i’ve also been putting on confidence.
By choosing to get all dressed up, i’ve been able to more easily remind myself that i can choose to be the way i want in other situations too. I’ve been so much more proactive and willing to just try…which i haven’t been for a while.
What do you think? Will you try getting #AllDressedUp this week and see what it does for you?
‘Cause if you have been feeling like less of yourself lately, i challenge you now.
