DEPRESSION

Why “dressing up” is sometimes the only option.

Of course, “dressing up” is not really an only option but sometimes we girls just have to have a “best foot forward” kind of a day.

That’s what I’m needing today. It’s amazing how the tiniest things can make a difference in our moods, like having a “dress up” day.

I could run my errands today in my jeans and that’s perfectly fine. I love jeans and am so glad the weather is cooler. But yesterday I had a not-so-pleasant day with someone and I’m choosing¬†to counter that today with my appearance.

(By the way, this is one of my go-to suggestions for managing depression. Look as good as you can every day. That person’s face reflected in the mirror needs to look like someone you’d like to be friends with.)¬†

So today I’m wearing my cute black and gray print skirt and red turtleneck, my knee-high black boots, and my gray sweater. It’s raining and ugly but I refuse to go there.

Sometimes we just have to play “dress-up”.

God bless and I hope you have a good day.

  1. That is true, we all need a dress up day. Now that I work from home, it’s harder for me to think of dressing up for work, but I’m dressing up for date night tonight. Most times, hubby and I just go out in jeans and t-shirts, but I want dress, heels, makeup and my hair done just right.
