Sometimes, you just gotta put on a dress


Yesterday, of course, was the first day of Spring. Anyone who knows me knows I loathe Winter. I hate being cold. I love wearing my fun coats and sweaters and such. However, I long to wear my pretty dresses without feeling a draft on my legs.
I decided that the first day of spring meant it was time to break out the fun dresses again. I went with my favorite red polka dot dress. The dress came from a small company that went out of business not too long ago. Also, the company featured me as their Facebook cover girl for a bit. This was after I first started getting involved in the pin up community, so I was super excited.
To be honest, I have been in a bit of a funk lately. Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I try to keep a schedule for posting but sometimes have time lapses. The past few weeks have been fairly regular. However, it comes at a bit of a cost to me as in it tires me out to work for long periods of time. I write here and another place. Plus, I sell leggings and accessories. Then there is the whole matter that I am taking the burlesque course. It is all fun. To be honest, it does not seem like a lot. However, my brain does not always want to cooperate with me. It has been over a year and a half since my brain injury relapse, and I still struggle at times.
That being said, I am not giving up on any of it. I have this determination to get my brain back into shape. I also recently found a new doctor and am slightly optimistic that I might get some answers. In the meantime, I will keep plugging along.
The big thing about wearing one of my favorite dresses yesterday was that it put me in a better mood. Granted, all the compliments that I got while I was out and about rocking my style totally went to my head and puffed up my ego more. (Not really. I seriously don’t have THAT big of an ego. Okay, I think I am hot. However, we all should think that way, dontcha think?) Wearing the dress got me out of my slump too. I woke up in a better mood today and actually got more accomplished. Sometimes, dressing up can be a form of therapy. We need to take good care of ourselves, and what better way than getting dressed up just because we want to do it. So if you find yourself in a funk that seems to not want to go away, maybe it is time to put on a dress, a cute pair of shoes, and get your strut on!
