Something happened to me about 4 or 5 years ago. I changed, and It was due to stress, anxiety, and depression. And because of this, I feel like I’ve lost myself. I used to look in the mirror and see someone unbelievable beautiful. She was someone who took care of herself. She took the time to take care for her skin, ate extremely healthy and even took the time to shave her legs.
I don’t do that anymore; I’m for some reason not that person anymore. I don’t take time to take care of myself anymore, and when I look at myself in the mirror, I don’t like what I see. So I’m declaring 2019 to be the year that I glow up. And this is what I’m going to do about it.
I feel like it’s going to take a year because they’re a number of things that I would like to change and it’s been scientifically proven that it takes at least 30 days to break a habit. I’ve been in these habits for years, so it’s going to take some time for me to change and make everything that I’m doing a habit
Before today, I never really had a problem with my skin. It was the definition of flawless. I barely ever had a blemish. And back then I didn’t have to really do much. I didn’t scrub my face with endless products. I had maybe one face scrub and a face mask that’s it. But Today a bunch of pimples and blackheads have invaded my face space. I can’t have that. It has to change.
My hair uses to be sooo strong and sooo voluminous. It’s not anymore. My hair is in tangles, and it’s breaking off. I used to have people talking straight shit about my hair. Either they loved it, or they thought I should do something different to make it better in their opinion. But really what I was doing was making it the best it ever was.
I need to start doing more things for myself. I would first like to exercise and to get my body back in shape, and I’m going to be doing a separate post about that. Warning: Since I’m on the road I’ve found it very hard to eat right. But I’m going to try starting today to eat salads, all day every day. Another thing I would like to do is paint my nails, and eventually, I would like to get them done every few months or so. I would also like to wear make-up again. There was a time when I could walk out of the house without it. It made me feel good and want to feel like that again.
I’m going to keep you updated every month on my progress, and I’m also going to challenge you to keep us updating on yourself too. Message us and tell us what you’re up to because we believe self-care is important. Tell us what you think is important and what you’re going to change during your glow up year.
