TIP OF THE DAY – NO. 20 LOOKING GOOD AND DRESSING WELL

But by 11 am., even though we have done some work, we don’t feel so good. It is our subconscious telling us that we don’t  look as good as we did when we went out to work, and it is telling us so by making us feel uncomfortable. And when passing a mirror it gets even worse, looking at ourselves we might wonder -Who is that? And then with a deep sigh, our not so coiffed hair, or too large top is dismissed with – well nobody sees me anyway. You should stop and ask,” What do you mean? Am I nobody?”

Oh, I am not just preaching, I have been there and when one day, not by 11 am but by 2 pm I felt so bad that I thought I was sick. I took a shower, washed my hair, and put on a nice pair of pants with a fresh white blouse — I did not feel sick anymore, I felt well and alive. Since then I get dressed every morning, and even put on some make-up.

I don’t mean you have to wear your black suit around the house, but your jeans can be replaced by the slacks you have hanging in your closet. And you have other tops besides t-shirts and sweats. Of, course if you can’t miss the comfort of your sweats; buy nice ones, maybe a top with a zip in front, or a sweat or warm –up suit that matches.

My grandmother, who I admired for her down to earth wisdom, was always dressed and combed early in the morning. She used to say, “You never know who will be knocking at the door, and you don’t want to be embarrassed about how you look.”  You don’t either!

See you tomorrow
