This morning I did something I tell everybody never to do – but then who is always doing the right thing – we all need reminders – ME TOO – and may this be one for YOU.
The Mantra is – always look your best – well my hair needed washing and to just post a letter, I threw on a pair of pants and a sweater – no make-up – who afterall would see me in those few minutes?
I live in a highrise building – the elevator door opened and I wanted to disappear. There stood that good-looking man I have seen from time to time. I stepped in and said: “Good Morning.” He gave me a big smile, looking me up and down.
I felt so uncomfortable and not knowing what to do, I remarked, “You are all bundled up, it is not that cold outside (stupid remark) but I didn’t know what else to do.
“Yes, I have just come back from Florence and it was mild there” now we had reached the lobby and he gestured for me to step out first – I really wanted to crawl out behind him, but stepped bravely in front of him
“Have a good day” were is parting words
Maybe, and ist must be a big MAYBE, he did not think I looked too bad, but I knew. My self-confidence was at cero and made me behave not like my usual self. I can assure your that going to the letter box will now count as a special occasion to look my best.
So do as I said, not as I did – because you never know when and where you will meet somebody you like.
Until the next time
STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST
