I can't tell you how many times I've been late to an event or date simply because I hated my outfit or couldn't style my hair perfectly. Nothing seemed to work...the slacks weren't fitting right...the top was blah...the jewelry looked trashy...the shoes weren't working. My hair just wouldn't fall properly...the curls wouldn't twist like I wanted them to...the ends seemed dry... no amount of hair goop could make my edges smooth and lay flat. You know the drill.
Funny thing is, my hair looked the same yesterday and the clothing...well... I'd matched up that same outfit before. Ok...time for a mental readjustment. Sometimes I just need to slap myself and realize that THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH ME.
The clothes and the hair don't make me. The most expensive Jimmy Choo's don't define how smart I am. The freshly brushed highlights in my hair won't help me win a deal. The pencil skirt I nabbed at Bloomingdale's wasn't going to give me the inner joy I needed to happy or to be a blessing to someone else that day.
Who cares that I have a curling iron burn on the side of my head or that my teeth aren't straight or that I have a few corns on my toes. Yes, I have flaws and I am the proud treasurer of the national Imperfection Club where there are millions of members. Today, though I'll release a genuine smile, look in the mirror and love what I see and embrace everything about me. Gee...I feel better already!
