This morning I had to get up early because it was my first day at my new job. I knew it was going to be a tough morning when I needed three snoozes to finally kick me out of bed.
It wasn’t until I was washing my teeth that I finally looked in the mirror.
I…well…it wasn’t pretty what I saw. There was no sign of beauty sleep. In fact, there wasn’t any sign of any kind of sleep at all.
Now, usually how I am in the morning: I’m grumpy, I’m stubborn to make myself presentable or…
I SIMPLY DON’T CARE.
You can only guess, which one happened this morning. I just couldn’t care less about my messed up hair that was half a day away from being greasy and the darkest circles under my eyes.
Yeah, I said to myself, you look fine…for work. You look like hell and feel like crap. You’ll be fine.
PERFECT WORK COMBINATION!
Especially for the first day. Now I would usually try and “doll myself up” just for the sake of work but today, I really wasn’t feeling it. I wasn’t sad or in a bad mood, I just wanted to wear the coziest sweatpants and the baggiest shirt my closet can give me and be on my way.
AND GUESS WHAT?
That’s exactly what I did. And I felt better for it. I had an amazing first day at work, I had fun and I was comfortable. Which is really the lesson here.
So next time you wake up in the morning and you look at yourself in the mirror and instead of oh my god you say eeh, just don’t bother, wear what you want and present yourself as you feel in that moment. I know that sometimes we are forced to put certain things on but if you have a chance, just go with the flow.
Read with you later, Lara.
