Life can really beat you down. If you let it. I think you have some idea what I’m talking about. We’ve all been through it to some extent.
You know what it feels like. When you can’t catch a break. When you think it can’t possibly get any worse. Then it does. And then it gets even worse than the previous worse. Pardon my English. When that happens, we tend to forget ourselves in the thick of things.
You’ve seen it I’m sure. The single mother working so hard to raise her child that it takes 3 months before she hits the salon. A gentleman looking to build his business that he shuns his sense of style and doesn’t shop for any new clothes for a whole year. The challenge with letting yourself go, however, is two-fold.
First of all, it gets even worse for you because whether we like it or not, we’re judged by our appearance as human beings. So you make your journey a lot more difficult the second you make a subconscious decision not to invest in yourself.
But more importantly, how you present yourself has a massive impact on the most important person, you. You see, making a solid style investment in yourself does a lot more than helping those around you to see yourself in a positive light. It boosts your self-confidence.
When you look at yourself in the mirror and see someone spectacular, you feel a lot stronger.
And it is that very strength that helps you fight back against all that life has been throwing at you of late. It is that strength that leads to the glow in your eyes that inspires all those around you.
So here’s to you. And your ability to bounce back from whatever it is life throws at you. It may slow you down, but it will never ever stop you.
