|Thought for the day. . .|
Yesterday was one of those best intentions (to write a post) that didn’t quite work out as planned. I had an appointment in Paris with the surgeon who operated on my knee. No, I promise I’m not going to blah on about that. All is well.
I really like my doctor and from the moment we met we tended to veer off of medical related conversations. Sort of.
He asked me what I did and then became interested in my thoughts on not only French women, but also beauty, taking care of one’s self and the psychological benefits of both. When I was in the clinic he would come into my room at the end of the day to check on me and that’s when our conversations about health, as in mental heath, became part of our routine.
He is absolutely convinced that a couple of days after an operation, when it’s feasible, that women would feel better if they applied a little make-up and men would get the same boost out of shaving.
“I believe it would in some subtle way help their recovery,” he said. The obstacle to that end he realizes is finding someone to transmit his message: “Who can suggest the idea and how?” He continues to think about it he told me yesterday.
Now, let’s take this subject and bring it home to us. With little extrapolation, we’re talking about perking up our morale. That means, as always, making the slightest effort every day to “arrange ourselves.” Ten minutes of primping and choosing something pleasing and flattering to wear for the day will, without exception, change the way we feel and act throughout the day.
I’ve experimented. It’s not as if I couldn’t walk from my bed to my computer in my pyjamas and write this blog. Truth be told I have done just that, but not for years. I’m not sure, but I think I write better when I look better. Maybe not, but that’s irrelevant. I feel better. I’m getting dressed to go to work, it sets a framework for the day.
Oh, yes, I don’t wear sweats to work although I do wear T-shirts.
