I know I'm very lucky I was able to quit my day job and make a living doing something I love. There's nothing better than being the master of your destiny. But over the past year, I've discovered some things, and here's one of them....
I'm never....EVER....dressed. I spend my entire life in pajama pants now. I like to refer to them as "loungy" pants so I don't feel quite so bad about myself.I also tell myself my "loungy" pants are much more practical, since I work with so many oils and messy things. But the truth is, it's just me here all day and I don't WANNA get dressed. Also, so I don't feel quite so bad, I've acquired quite a collection....I've got zebra and leopard and yoga pants and some velvet-like material that's quite luxurious. I've got long ones and capris and... well, you get the point. My dresser is crammed with these things. Closing the drawers has become a challenge. But it's gotten so bad that if I'm called to the school for a meeting or have to actually go out in public, I actually get ANNOYED at having to put on regular clothes. I was thinking about this as I was getting out of the shower this morning and preparing to put on yet *another* pair. If it were only the pants, it might not be so bad. But couple that with the fact my hair is always in a pony-tail (I tell myself that's ok too, because I need to have my hair up for work) and I never, ever wear makeup anymore....well..... there's a problem. So I've made a resolution.
I will get dressed in the morning.
To most people this may seem odd -- getting dressed is now a *RESOLUTION*???? But seriously... I've fallen into the "work-at-home" trap. I was going to add "I will put on makeup every day" but this is all about baby steps.
So wish me luck, people. When I reach for my beloved loungy pants in the morning, be there with me in spirit to say, "This is NOT acceptable behavior!"
Together we can do this.
