This morning started like every week-day mornings. Dark, damp, sad.
But I feel like going to fight today!
It Ain’t Over, Till It’s Over
In my little unemployed non-essential worker’s life, Wednesday is Market day! Any excuse is good to turn something as uneventful as grocery shopping into an event these days. So I got ready, applying full make up (yes even the healthy glow foundation!) which I perfectly realise is a little pointless when wearing a mask! But it’s the attitude you get from this little feminine trickery which counts! “If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack” Coco Chanel said!
So, ready to bump into Martin Henderson while choosing his vegetable for today’s special at his Virgin River Bar – yes I know, last time you checked, the man wasn’t in Brittany – I even chose to get the fancy city boots out. The ones with the solid heels.
I’m a sneakers kind of girl. Eventually, I also became a hiking waterproof shoes girl too. The perks of country living! But this morning I feel like making noise while I walk. I feel like standing straight, putting my shoulders back and keeping my chin up. I want to face the world – and the market stalls – with pride!
And the boots work! 6 centimetre-heels are just what I need to feel a different rhythm with each steps. It’s all in the head! This afternoon it will be pouring down again and I’ll be left alone with my TLC tasks and cooking plans at home but this morning, I feel like a dancing soldier!
Take care of you. If you’re struggling, remember you’re not alone.
Speaking of confidence, I even exchanged a few words with the iconic ageless beautiful deborah_darling after lunchtime. If you’re feeling a little under the weather, I’d advise you to get and get a bit from her fantastic positive energy.
