From The Generous Wife archive:
I have this friend who always looks great (and she’s nice too! Sheesh!). Anyhow, I realized one day that she must just “make time and energy” for it. We all have our priorities and the same 24 hours to use (and, honestly, it just peeves me when appearance becomes a god), but there is something about taking care of yourself and looking good that is healthy. (Thank you, Mindi!)
That said, let’s take some time to consider self care and dressing in flattering ways. Go through your makeup and wardrobe and get rid of the ugly stuff (y’all know what I’m talking about) and things you never use or wear (it’s always nice to slim down possessions). When you make new purchases, go for the flattering styles and colors. If you don’t know what looks good on you, ask a friend to shop with you. Do some research with self help books or websites (if someone knows of a good site, please leave a comment with this tip and share). Consider different clothing styles, try a new lotion, change your hair color, or cut back on (or increase) the amount of jewelry you wear.
The worse that can happen is you’ll find out you don’t like something and you have to try again. The best is that you find a style that you really like and you feel pretty. (Husbands have been known to be blessed by just the attempt.)
The difference between try and triumph is a little umph. Author Unknown
