So, I go to school with this girl who is full time fabulous.
And I do mean full time.
At first it was hard not to get all judgy, but then I just admitted to myself that I was impressed beyond measure and started being secretly upset that she doesn't have a fashion blog I can stalk. Today she actually wore yoga pants and all I've been thinking about is how interesting it is that she has made looking nice such a strong trait of hers that it caught me off guard to see her in yoga pants. The big question is, how do girls like her do it? (Kendi and Sydney...I'm looking at you)
Today my husband answered that question. He said "Priorities, baby...we all have them, and one of her biggest ones is looking nice, every day." (Hubs knows this girl from high school, and can attest to the fact that she has simply always been this way) That's deep though, right?? My next question was "What are my priorities?" What would someone think that my priorities are, after watching me from a distance? While I believe that looking nice is necessary for multiple reasons, I don't know if I'd want that to be my number one priority. Of course I had to make a list of things that are important to me, and here they are:
PRIORITY ONE: Getting things done, when they need to be done. In other words: stop procrastinating. This one is so broad that its hard to really set a specific goal, but I guess making to-do lists would be a good start.
PRIORITY TWO: Nailing a bedtime routine that works for both Matthew and I. I think that having scripture study and getting ready for bed right after dinner as opposed to right before bed would be helpful. Also, it would be really cool if I could stick to something like this.
PRIORITY THREE: Practice being kind. This one shouldn't be that hard, but for me it is I guess. You know...smile more, ask people about their lives, give sincere compliments.
Have you seen that sticky note method for habit building floating around Pinterest?
They say it takes 21 days to form a habit, and 2 days to break it.
I'll just finish by saying that even though I didn't list it as a priority, putting time into your appearance every day certainly wont hurt anything ;) Thanks for the inspiration, all you full time fabulous ladies out there!
