Day 2 of the Frumps to Pumps Challenge was about "Knowing your Why". Why do I want to get dressed everyday instead of just staying in my pj's or comfy sweats?? I have a few reasons for wanting to do this challenge:
1. To feel better about myself - when I get dressed, I feel more self-confident. When I take those extra 10 minutes in the morning to put on some makeup, it makes me feel special.
2. To more productive - The mornings I haven't showered and wear my sweats all day, are the days I am the least productive. All I want to do is sit around and take care of the kids. Taking care of the kids is a job in its self, but I should want to do more with my time and my life. I also don't want to leave the house when I don't get dressed. Who wants other people to see them in sweats? Some people might not care but I do.
3. To show my family I care about myself and them - Right now I don't put a lot of effort into looking nice. I dress up for church and that's about it. Most other times I am in jeans and t-shirts and no make-up. I was never a girl that really got dressed up or wore a lot of make-up but I did put a little more effort into it before I had kids. Usually my husband doesn't care about what I am wearing but doesn't he still deserve a wife that looks nice and cares about herself? How about my daughter? What kind of example am I setting for her? Do I really want her to dress the same way when she gets older?? I really need to set a good example for my daughter so that she knows it's ok to look nice all the time and not only when we are going out. Shouldn't I wear my best clothes for the people I love, not random strangers?
4. To not have to run upstairs to throw on real clothes when the doorbell rings unexpectedly - This reason is silly but it is a valid reason none the less.
