you're probably expecting a sad, tear-filled post about "why is this happening to me?" or "woe is me!" or "what's wrong with me?"...but that's not what you're going to get. i cried yesterday. i got a little choked up this morning. i even thought about it all day long, but guess what. i'm okay. i've accepted the news and i'm moving on. i'm looking forward to trying again, horrormones (like that? i thought it was rather appropriate.) and all. how did i do it? well, i'll tell you...
5 simple steps, that's all it takes to send the blues away.
step 1: wash it away. a simple treatment for the blahs and the blues is a shower. you'll be surprised how much better you feel when you're squeaky clean. not that you were that dirty to begin with, but...you know what i mean.
step 2: dress to the nines. put on your favorite outfit. you know, the one that makes you look taller and thinner, the one you can't help but strut in. and don't forget the bling!
step 4: paint your barn. that's what my mom calls putting on your make-up. (gotta love that southern charm!) don't just dab on some under-eye concealer and call it good. a touch of bronzer, a swipe of eyeshadow, a coat or two of mascara, and a nice shade of lipstick can go a long way.
step 5: flaunt it! go out in public, whether it be to the supermarket or work or wherever, and strut your stuff. you are one hot mama and you know it, so let everyone else know it, too. just try not to be smug or say "yeah, i know" when someone else tells you how good you look. ;)
it may seem vain or like a facade or even a bit ridiculous, but i guarantee it works. there's something to be said for caring about your appearance. when the outside looks good, it spreads to the inside. so, give it a try. before you know it, your outside will be reflecting your inside!
