I carry two very different sides to myself.
I am the Mom: sweat pants, shorts, tshirt and no bra, pony tail and drool on my shoulder.
I am the Woman: Girly, dressy, hair “did”, makeup, and heels Unfortantly neither side really wins the majority of my time.
When you have kids at home, dressing up can be very last minute and when I do, I tend to go to my safe place.
She looks a little like this:
But inside I have to be honest that I do have a little Glam Girl waiting to bust out. I am just afraid to step out into the reds and blues and brights. I think as a mother we are always withdrawing who we are, just trying to get in and out of stores, on with the bills, raising our kids, we don’t have time to be noticed.
We barely have time to notice ourselves.
We have to CHANGE that. I am a firm believer that our outside should match how we feel.
It is hard for me to believe that a woman that walks around with jogging pants and a ratty shirt has self confidence and feels good about herself. I say that because I have been that woman. On certain days I AM that woman. SHe wants to crawl back in bed, not put on lipstick and nail polish. Am I right?
But sometimes kick starting self confidence is as easy as taking a shower, fixing up ourselves, and LIKING what we see.
What do you think? Can I pull it off?
