It's kind of funny-- I've been much in the same place as you. I went over two years growing out my hair without a haircut after a two terrible cuts in a row. It just became "okay" for me to not have nice hair. And I became very attached to my hair. I had it trimmed a couple of times and then in August chopped quite a bit off. I loved having it cut. But.... fast forward now, and I am back to not having the "me" time to cut my hair. I haven't had my brows waxed in ages and I feel like I look like a shlub.

I know I don't have the time to get a haircut, because I always have my little man with me. But, I've decided to do what I want... and I've started watching tutorials on YouTube on how to do my hair the way I've always wanted and I am going to go with what I want. My desired style may not be "in", but it is classic and I am teaching myself to look like I want regardless of what is "in". I'm really looking forward to taking time to do my hair and makeup the way I want. And I hope I can get it right, fairly quickly!

Imperfection is important. If we were all perfect, then there would be no such thing as growth, and everyone would be extremely boring, which is, paradoxically, not that perfect.-- Dr. Matt

Yay you! It is soooo important to take care of yourself, no one else is going to do it for you! I have always been told you do your best when you look your best! So keep it up!

The power to change, the courage to do, the will and drive to be exceptional lies within me, and by leaving my fears, my doubts, and my excuses behind, I embrace all that lies within me.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

A new hairdo can really raise your spirits. I never did it much when I was younger, but now I do and it really gives me a lift!

I can't tell you the last time I had my hair cut (it's long enough that I trim my own ends)...my son and I were just discussing today how much I do for him vs. myself. He's 11 and thinks the world revolves around him...yet I do everything for myself...WHAT! 1st...the world doesn't revolve around him...2nd I ALWAYS put him first..then my parents and friends...I thought a out that today...and after reading this...I really do need to make some changes.

SO TRUE!!!

As mothers, wives, housekeepers, shoe finders, laundry ladies & so on & so on.....
We put EVERYONE else first, that is one reason some of us are in the place we are in now. I know b/c that was (& still can be) my biggest problem. I have found when I let everyone else do what they need to do & I take the time that I really deserve I am much happy which leds to everyone else being MUCH happier. Things move along smoother as well.
We can do this!! I agree MAKE time for YOURSELF this week!!

This weekend I got my hair done for the first time in almost two years!! WHY did it take 2 years you may ask?!??! Because I put EVERYONE in front of myself. Haircuts cost money, they take time, etc and I never felt worthy of spending the money or time on myself. I even felt guilty making my family wait for me while I was getting it done! BOY was that the wrong thinking!!!!

If you have no pride in your appearance or care what you look like on the outside, then what are the chances you will worry about your insides?

We have to take the time to do something for OURSELVES!!! Not for the kids, the hubby, the boss, our parents, friends, etc but for YOU!!! Take the time to paint your nails, put on make up or get a new hairdo! Buy a new necklace or some perfume!! It doesn't have to be big or expensive. YOU deserve it!!!!

This morning I got up and got ready for church. Instead of doting over everyone else until the minute we walked out the door, I made sure everyone had what they needed to get themselves ready and left them to care for themselves. I took a few minutes to do my hair, put on makeup and a pretty skirt & sweater. I FELT GREAT!!!!! I liked myself instead of bashing myself today. It showed in everything I did!! I had a better attitude all day!!!

This evening I am going to take a few minutes to read a book before bed. I guarantee the dishes will still be there to put away in the morning and the laundry isn't going to leave!! But it will give me a few minutes of ME time to relax before bed!!

I hope you take a few minutes of ME time for yourself this week!!!

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!



Here's to Lookin' Good in 2015!
