Up a little late, waiting for a call that Rob and Pierce have arrived in Nashville for chess nationals. So proud!
Also thinking about a great group of people who joined me for dinner tonight. Most of them graduate from ISU tomorrow and I know they will change the world.
The great joys of my life!
Though, earlier today, I turned into a stress ball while I was getting ready for work. This doesn’t happen often, but it happens sometimes (if I’m honest about it).
I mussed and fussed with what to wear and ended up in a drum-drab pair of old pants and an ill-fitting sweater. I looked ready to slouch in my chair all day, looking and feeling as sorry for myself as possible.
And then I realized. I’m dressed like my mood.
It’s a peculiar dilemma to consider if my mood made me dress that way, or, my head made me dress that way to ensure that my mood would continue.
What’s remarkable is that I’m learning enough about myself to notice this and make an intentional decision to change my mood (and my clothes)!
Moments later, in a trendy black-and-white dress with a red belt and heels, I went bounding down the stairs with confidence. I decided right then and there to kick my mood to the curb and make the most of the day.
Maybe I’m wrong about all of it; perhaps it’s too simple that clothes can change my mood, but it has to start somewhere.
And it worked. I felt great all day.
Choose your mood.
Red shoes help.
