Sometimes, going to the bathroom has absolutely nothing to do with going to the bathroom. That’s probably more true for me than most other people. I go to the bathroom several times a day just to look at myself. No, I’m not narcissistic and yes, I have a healthy level of self-esteem. My reasoning is completely rationale, at least for me.
Part of my Be You Beauty is my love for makeup. Doing an incredible face beat always makes me feel good. They say that when you look good you feel good and it really is true! Despite what may be going wrong in my work day all I have to do is take a trip to the ladies room, lock myself in the handicap stall and look at myself. I know that probably sounds crazy but in addition to some chat time with JC, it really helps me get through! I figure hey, it’s ok to have a rough day, but don’t look like it. And you know what I’ve noticed, the way that I look has a positive affect on the people around me too. I can’t tell you how many conversations I have a day with different people about my makeup, hair, clothes or nail color. I think that the effort I put into my appearance inspires others and encourages them to separate themselves from their every day grind. This is not at all my primary intention but it makes me feel good to have a positive affect on others nonetheless. Anything I can do, consciously or subconsciously that encourages women to embrace their Be You Beauty is part of me walking in my purpose.
So tomorrow if things get rough, maybe you should take an extra trip to the bathroom.
