52 FEATS – NUMBER 15 (Looking Good)

17 Apr

DAY 7 (Sunday):

This week has left me feeling great.  I worked hard every day to put some thought into my appearance (though NOT the most important thing in life, I know), and it paid off.  I felt better about myself, people complimented me, and I even had more energy.  Twice my daughter said, “Mom, are you wearing lipstick?!  You look beautiful!”  Big time boost for my ego.

I also have a HUGE bag of clothes to donate.  I recently met a woman who’s a professional wardrobe consultant, and she starts every client out with a huge closet purge.  I did the same – I got rid of almost all my holey, stained, trashy-looking clothes.

I also decided not to keep anything I hadn’t worn in a long time, and I ended up with a huge pile of stuff that I can give to someone who really needs it.  What else did I end up with?  A closet where I can actually see what I have, and it’s all decent choices that will reflect who I am.  And though some days I may feel like a sloppy, crabby, tired mom, I don’t have to look like it.

I had such a great time with this one – this will definitely stick with me!
