In 8 years of being a mom, I’ve had the chance to do the stay-at-home gig, working mom thing and part time working thing and I’m so thankful for those opportunities. I remember when I first started staying at home full time when Brayden was about 1 year old. I remember thinking that my new “stay-at-home” mom status gave me full permission to live in yoga pants, t-shirts and a baseball cap. There were even days that I didn’t make a shower a requirement!😳😳
Fast forward to these days on maternity leave. Although I enjoy my lazy days here and there AND my workout clothes, I understand the importance of getting up, getting dressed (including a shower!) and yes, even putting on makeup every day!
If I don’t take care of myself, how am I going to take care of anyone else. Not to mention, I’m a lot more motivated to get things done when I’m dressed half way decent. It’s amazing how some makeup and a hair straightener can give you the motivation to tackle to-do lists and run your day.
Don’t let your day run you! No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, and show up!
