Look it, Feel it, Be it!

Almost two weeks ago I was with some friends at youth church. After a discussion about my hair, a dear friend of mine informed me that I "need to invest more in myself." Running through my various excuses about having more important things to do, not really caring, ect. I myself wasn't even really convinced.

I have always prided myself in being able to get out the door in five minutes. Not a bad thing, mind you, just not great. Last week I was utterly sick, and missed my usual Sunday activities. I called in sick, which is not something I do lightly. I sat around the house with no motivation to do anything, much less anything productive.

What does this have to do with writing? Many times we don't bother to get ready for the day until we have something to get ready for. Which can be very detrimental if you work in the afternoon like I do. When you get up and don't do your hair, make-up, put on something other than sweats, your mind doesn't kick in to gear either.

This morning I decided my friend was right. Not because I need to look good for the sake of people around me, but for myself. When you get ready for the day physically, you feel ready mentally and emotionally. So I challenge you, even if you aren't going anywhere all day: get ready like you have somewhere to be. You will feel more energetic and put together, which makes for a more productive day all around.
