As I sit here with greasy hair pulled back in a pony tail with dark circles under my eyes I just feel frumpy and ugly and worn out.
I am trying to think of fun things to do to survive the kids up-coming spring break but I feel like my creative juice has all been sucked out.
I know if I would just take a little more time for myself, time to do my makeup, time to work out and tone down my mommy pooch it would help. Yes, I do take time for myself-time I waste playing games on my iPad or even reading books (which doesn't feel quite as wasteful) but if I just took that extra time to make myself look a little better by exercising, taking a few minutes to do some makeup and my hair and taking time for my spiritual self-I think it would change everything.
A couple of weeks ago on a Saturday I had a friend's baby shower to attend and I took the time to get ready. When I swung by the grocery store after the shower, I knew I looked good and the swagger in my step showed it. It felt good. It felt good to look my best and to walk with confidence and my head held high.
So it's time, it's time to take care of me again. Time to be that one hot mama that I know I can be.
Wish me luck.
