What Not to Wear on Thursday night featured a forty-year-old doctor, mother of three, assistant with her children’s dance studio named KATHY. She was so busy caring for others, she neglected herself and wore many types of pajama pants for all kinds of events. The way she decided what to wear every day was to look in the mirror and see if the clothes were ADEQUATE.
Kathy wants her daughters to feel like powerful women!!
Of course, Stacy and Clinton worked their magic and took Kathy from ADEQUATE to a point where she looked in the mirror and said, “I look fabulous.” I remember those days all too well, when I did not care about Pam. I did not think ADEQUATE when I got dressed….I thought OK, THIS WILL DO. For the past nine years, I have taken myself to a point where I look in the mirror every day, smile, and say FABULOUS!
It is amazing when you go from adequate to your own definition of fabulous, how you will stand up straighter, smile more, and feel like taking on ….anything! I am still older and overweight…but that is not what I look at every morning. I dress to enhance the good parts, and hide the challenging parts. I look to see if I am communicating the messages I want to send. Also, negative self-talk is self-defeating! I am strong and powerful!
If I were to ever think ADEQUATE now….I would start again….or just stay home!
What makes you feel fabulous when you put it on? I hope all of you can discover some FABULOUS in your life this weekend! Have a good one!!
