Did you choose to get dressed today?
No, I don’t mean did you find clothing or did you walk around in your birthday suit. I mean, did you put time and effort into what you wore today?
An outfit can change your whole perspective on your day. If you choose to wear pajama pants and a big T-shirt, it’s probably going to be a lazy day. If you decided on a cute top and your favorite jeans, you’re most likely going to be productive.
That was the feeling I had when I got dressed this morning.
I found something I own that do not normally wear. Mostly because I have always been uncomfortable with showing skin.
I don’t really know. I have always had the body for form-fitting clothing.
Yet I always felt awkward wearing them. I am going through a process of transformation. Pushing myself out of my comfort zones deliberately in order to gain a new perspective.
So, I chose to get dressed this morning. I chose to look as if I had plans outside of my home when I fully intend to spend the day in my office.
I chose to put pride in my appearance (without having somewhere to be) for the first time in a very long time!
I think I’ve gotten to the point where I want to remind myself, I matter, where I love myself unconditionally and that I want to provide myself with as much care as I am worth. I want to stop depending on the things I do for others, or the things others do for me to keep me in the mindset that I matter.
In order to do that, changes needed to be made.
So, here I stand before you, a 31-year-old woman.
New and improved.
A woman who makes her own happiness and provides her own worth.
So, I’ll ask again — did you get dressed today?
