The Kelly goal this week was created over the weekend because I realized something: I feel so much better about myself when I feel pretty. I don't need to get all over the top with my outfits, but at least blow drying my hair and putting on a bit of make up seems to improve my mood immensely. And it makes me realize that I AM pretty, along with nice, funny, crazy, and just plain weird.
It's Wednesday, and I almost gave up on the goal today after waking late and feeling cranky that I didn't make my spin class but I twisted my hair back and threw on some mascara and it helped!
Random photos from this weekend that reminded me I can get dressed up:
Basically, getting my hair done is an excuse to take pictures of myself. Also, please note my amazing boyfriend in the background of this one.
Feeling like myself. Love my hairdresser - she gets it bang on no matter how vague I am. AND loving finally feeling like I can be 'me'. It took me 26 years, but I finally said screw it, got the piercings I wanted, and did crazy things like shaved part of my head and stretched my ears. (Believe me I look a lot more hardcore in this picture than I actually am!
Ignore my dorky face, I'm really bad at outfit pictures.
I've become a dress lover.
Because I can choose to highlight my favourite parts of me: my waistline and the girls.
And it's been a bajillion degrees outside and I can't stand wearing shorts. I never had and never will have small legs, so every pair of shorts I try on will fit in the waist but squeeze my thighs. It's a really horrible feeling and it just makes me feel worse about myself. Dresses are so much easier to deal with.
I figure the only way to truly embrace this journey is to get comfortable with me now and the rest will fall into place.
