Good Form

Flashback to December:
Ready to Party!

I have a story to tell you- This December, our company holiday party got cancelled. More specifically- it got cancelled the day of just a couple of hours prior to it. I was left looking like the above.

I had a couple of people, who came up to me to comment- “Oh, look at you! All the other girls and you got so pretty for nothing today! It’s such a waste, no? haha! So fancy, you outdid yourselves and nowhere to go!”
My response: “No, actually, it’s not a waste. Those other girls might have “outdone” themselves today but they should be proud. They got up and got ready to greet the day with their best foot forward. It’s good form to look your best no matter what. It doesn’t matter if I have a party or an event or nothing at all. Waking up, getting dressed, and truly being happy with what you are wearing to the point that you feel special- that is a great exercise and something that should be practiced. No matter that the party got cancelled.  It’s something to learn for life. Always be your best.”
This reminds me of now- I may not have many places to go on a daily basis but just getting up and being ready for the day and all its surprises is great form. Practice on. Have a great Friday!
