One thing I love about blogs is the realization that you are almost never alone in your thoughts, adventures and struggles. I love Turtle Progress' reaction to the response she is receiving for spending just a bit of time on herself in the morning. She even states...
" I’m wearing makeup to work. It takes me about ten minutes in the morning: Bare Minerals foundation and blush, then eyeshadow, mascara, and lip gloss. The look is very natural and “daytime,” but people have commented that my whole face looks brighter as a result."
If you're a woman, though sometimes daunting, compliments go a long way. I know that I carry them with me throughout my day. Even this afternoon at the gym, a fellow locker room mate complimented my jeans, upset to hear that they were homemade and she couldn't go out and grab a pair. It was a quick conversation, but the mere occurrence left me with a smile on my face.
Try complimenting someone today. Not necessarily in regards to their fashion choices, but something you sincerely appreciate about them. Pass along the confidence and warm fuzzies.
