Good morning everyone! Can you believe it’s June. We are half way through the year. Have you been taking care of yourselves? I think I am doing much better in the self care department. It’s not always about buying yourself stuff. Although a nice outfit tends to make me just a little happier.
Last month I started walking again. I have been doing pretty good. I lagged for about a week after the kids got out of school though but I plan on getting it together again. But I have been pretty much meeting my step goal almost everyday. I took a rest in there.
Lately I feel like my confidence has gone up a great deal. I think it’s because I am being more positive and accepting myself. I just have been feeling pretty lately. It could also have to do with me putting more effort into my appearance. Even when I don’t feel at the best I try to make myself bust out of my mood.
Now I know I said you don’t always have to spend money but when you see an item that just calls your name you just have to get it. I came across the most adorable dress in Walmart. Yes I shop at Walmart. Fashion inspiration can hit you anywhere. Anyway I wasn’t going to get it but my husband encouraged me to cause he saw that I really wanted it. So I went ahead and purchased it. I gotta tell ya I’m glad you did. I think it looks pretty great on me. Don’t you? Another thing I have been doing is wearing my hair out more. I was really self conscious about doing this but I feel great about trying different things now.
Speaking of hairstyles, I can empathize with those women who are not so uncomfortable leaving their hair out, whether it’s because they don’t like how it looks or are afraid of the damage pollution can cause. Thinning hair is starting to become a bigger problem these days, with many women losing a lot of hair even when they’re fairly young. But I want to say to all the women out there, be confident! You’re beautiful! Even if you feel the need to research hair transplant pricing and look at procedures you can get done for your beautiful locks. It’s okay.
I know we can all feel inadequate sometimes, but just remembering that we are all unique, imperfect yet perfect the way we are, can really uplift us. So take care of yourself in whatever way you want to, and live your life to the fullest!
So what have you done for self care lately?
