Ok, so I’m not really going to stop showering. But I’m thinking about it? Why? Well, because as I’m sure I’m not the only person in the world, my perception of myself doesn’t seem to match that of the rest of the world.
On days where I’m feeling sloppy and icky and everything else, that’s when someone will say to me, “Wow! You look great. Have you lost weight?”
The day I spent open to close volunteering at the carnival at the wee ones’ school? When I was spending hours at the customer service desk answering questions and running credit cards and whatever else came up, that’s when a friend’s husband comes up and tells me that he’s impressed. I look really “elegant” that day. Go figure.
Or maybe I’m having a really bad hair day. That’s when someone will say that my hair looks amazing.
This is what my hair looks like on what I consider to be a good day. It’s not a “pretty” day all around, but my hair is behaving. Nothing is sticking out in weird places. There are no parts that are half curly and half not. I don’t have any wings around my head. It isn’t super poofy. It’s behaving.
This is not the day I get the compliments. I get compliments on the day when I vlog quickly before I go walking with my friends. What do I not do before I go walking? Those are the mornings where I didn’t shower and panic trying to fluff my hair into some semblance of normalcy before turning on the camera. And I get the compliments then. And when I go to meet my friends? I get compliments from them on how awesome my hair looks.
So apparently my solution is to just stop showering, right? I wonder if it would help if I stopped brushing my teeth, too….
