So what is it about us gals? Let's face it, ladies, I don't know who we check out more: ourselves... or other chics!
NO SHE DIDN'T JUST WEAR A DRESS ON CASUAL FRIDAY!
Ain't it funny how our confidence can hinge on little things like...
Does our desk mate have her sneakers or stilettos on today?
"Cuz I am wearing flip flops...not Ferragamo. I'LL BE DAMNED IF MY NASTY BUSTED TOES ARE NEXT TO THAT BLING!"
Whether it be Dana's dressing down and Dina is dressing up...Sally washed her hair and Susie waits till Friday... Or the carnal sin, Karen's got full face and Kara ...WENT AU NATURAL!
Yep, the minute we see someone done up we feel down trodden.
The last ten days I kept track of how many times I witnessed this phenomenon.
Believe it or not, 10 out of 10 days I saw it happen. And sadly, the 10th day was me.
Sure enough some young sprightly soul named Kelly frolicked into my office on Thursday...
NOTE THE NATURALLY TOUSLED HAIR AND PERFECTLY WHITE TEETH
Miraculously when I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror moments later I had gained 10lbs and was in dire need of crest whitening strips.
Funny how that happens...
What is not funny; however, is the fact that Thursday I did not blow dry my hair.
And lipstick... hello? Who does her make-up in the am and forgets to put on lips?
DOUBLE HELLO?? I DO!!!!
So what do we do girls? I mean NONE of us are immune to it.
We could just stab all the pretty bi***es in the eyes and spread nasty rumors about them... just kidding.
But that would not be good karma, cuties!
A cutie will wake up tomorrow and go to her closet with a smile plastered on her face. No matter what she chooses she will stick to her guns all day!
And when her insecurities kick in because Betty lost 10 lbs... and she happened to spend last night baking a "cake", she will force herself to give Betty a hug.
Girlfriends, at the core we are all SISTERS.
So just fill the room with love and light and trust that you are just as amazing as you were when you woke up this morning. I truly believe positive energy can not only change our outlook on life but our bodies, as well.
I promise it will come back ten-fold. Someday you will be in a hurry, in flip flops, and void of make up.
And someone will notice how pretty you are and compliment you on your true beauty. Ask my co-worker Carol. Today it actually happened to her. Unfortunately, she would not let me take a picture to prove it.
