One of the things I love most about my work is that it gives me the opportunity to meet women of all ages and walks of life, learning their stories. These women have jobs, run businesses, go to school, take care of children and aging family members, volunteer in their communities and manage their households. I often find myself in awe of my clients and all that they balance. As wives, mothers, daughters, sisters and friends, they take care of everyone’s needs, often at the expense of their own.
As part of these stories, a recurring theme I hear is one of sadness and frustration about feeling frumpy and unattractive because their bodies or faces have changed over time. It’s a feeling they do not share often yet it has a underlying impact on their sense of self. Until COVID, stay-at-home mothers, caregivers and retired women were the most at risk for feeling this way because their casual lifestyle of being home most of the time doesn’t require a dress code. They get so used to wearing sweat pants and no makeup that they’re not sure what to put on when they go out, so they simply give up doing much about their appearance. Now, women of all ages are feeling similarly after working from home for over a year!
Everyone Wants to Feel Attractive
Feeling attractive and appreciated by others is an innate part of our self-identity. It’s a good feeling to look in the mirror and like what we see. When we’re happy, we enjoy life more and radiate a positive energy that is appealing to others. A happy woman, particularly a mature one, who owns who she is and has the wisdom that only comes with time, is one of the most interesting, enjoyable people to meet and know.
Looking good is not about being at that perfect weight. It’s not about getting Botox to fix those wrinkles or buying all those products the cosmetics industry says will make you look younger or more attractive. It’s about self-acceptance of who you are now and learning what works for your body, face and coloring.
Learning how to choose flattering clothing, hairstyles, accessories and makeup does take a little time in the beginning, but it will save time AND money in the long run, not to mention make you feel great, which is the most important part!
So put yourself first for once. Learn some techniques to enhance your appearance that make you feel good when you look into that mirror. You’ll feel better and have more energy if you do, which will help you balance all of the other demands in your life. Only you can make it happen!
