I took the day off yesterday. I had been depressed about how crappy of a winter it’s been, and knew with temps in the low 60s and no meetings all day, I couldn’t pick a better day to stay home. I got my nails done, did a few minor chores around the house and finally washed my poor, dirty car. It was a lovely day.
Alas, the one miss was the outfit photos I tried to take. I need to do more casual looks on the blog, but all the photos were blurry. I HATE taking pics with a tripod. Seriously.
Annoying, but it happens. Rest assured you missed a great jeans and sweatshirt combo. But maybe it was for the best, since I’m also trying to talk about more than just outfits, it seemed the perfect opportunity to bring up another topic: taking care of ourselves. I’ve been trying to work on taking better care of myself – both physically, such as through eating better and going to BarreAmped, as well as emotionally. It sounds like an obvious concept, but if your tendencies lean toward putting other people first as mine do, it’s one to consider. I think for fear of sounding selfish, I’ve forgone looking after myself in the past. This year, I want to put an end to that pattern. It’s not something I can do very often – but taking a day for myself felt great and re-energized me for the weeks ahead. I highly recommend it.
