Meet Gloria…she is a vivacious middle aged woman who understands the importance of following her passions in order to say I MATTER.  She loves and teaches pottery…and does this despite working in an office to pay the bills.  One of her creations is hanging on the wall in this picture.  She also looks fabulous each time she leaves the house!

Gloria is the opposite of frumpy…she is stylish and creative for all occasions!
Frumpy…it’s one of those words which is a perfect fit for what it says…. When we feel frumpy, we are usually looking at
Comfort-Driven Clothing…

FRUMPY!  I have been there.  I know how easy it is to slip into this type of dressing.  It perhaps begins for some of you like it did with me…too busy with little ones to care about how I looked.  When you are getting spit up on and there is no time for showers, personal care goes out the window.  Also, critical people in our lives can often shut us down at any age. Many will cease to even bother at that point. I understand. I know what is found along the road to FRUMPY TOWN.

But, sometimes it only takes a little direction and a desire to enjoy life more to turn things around.  Upon realizing I MATTER, I also realized I needed to dress better every time I left the house…and I mean every time!  Decide each morning to look amazing no matter your schedule…even if it is running basic errands, when you look your best, you will leave the house with joy and a smile on your face….a good habit has begun!

This is when the grumpies go out the window and we think…Bring on the Day!  With confidence, we can strike up a conversation with anyone in a line… with any salesperson…with any cash register checker…or with any woman out doing the same thing.

I love your scarf, where did you find it?
That vegetable in your cart looks great, does it taste good?
Your little girl is adorable, how old is she?

 These are all conversation lines we are more likely to have if we feel our best and let joy flow from the inside out!  At this point, errands become fun…we look forward to getting out!

We are all good at becoming martyrs which only takes us deeper and deeper into a pit.  Do you need to pick up a prescription or go to the post office…look your best and begin to discover a difference in life when we hold high the sign and say I MATTER!
