For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know I always preach the importance of self-care when you are travelling the body positive/self-love journey. It’s important for anyone, no matter your story. Yesterday’s blog hinted at my glum mood this week for which I listed a few possible reasons why I feel this way. I have to say, today I am feeling better. The sunshine had a huge impact on helping me feel more chipper. I also took time to dress nice, do my hair and put on some makeup, things I hadn’t done all week. I went and got my nails done which went a long way to helping me feel more pretty. The last stop on my self-care list for today was a little drop in at Torrid. I had some money saved up from some online sales so I treated myself to a few new things , all found for a great deal from the clearance section (buy one, get two free). I got to see a few of my favourite gals working at the store today and got a hug and birthday wishes (birthday next week) from all. I know it’s their job to be friendly but I honestly feel like they are the sweetest women who really care about their customers.
So all in all, it was good day and I think taking time for myself really helped prop up my mood. So the next time you’re feeling a little down in the dumps, take time to make yourself pretty for no one other than yourself. Treat yourself to a new haircut, manicure or a new frock. Buy yourself some flowers and definitely spend some time soaking up a little sunshine. Doing some of those things definitely made me feel more Pretty, Plus and Proud. I hope it works for you! Taking time to do something for yourself is important because you are worth it and you deserve it!
