For your career. For your relationships. For your sanity. You need to consider these 5 Reasons to Put Your Best Self Forward because they might just change your day, your Mom life, and your future…
5 Reasons To Put Your Best Self Forward…
#1 It will change the way you see yourself… and the way you are perceived by others. When you look good – you feel good (and vice versa!). Others pick up on that.
#2 Karma baby. Your best self is your respectful self – in real life and online. Never burn a bridge and never be mean.
#3 Make A Shift. Your “best self” is an ever-changing thing and I have heard good things about shifting a style every once in a while. Those pictures of me above span years (you can tell by the glasses); presenting very small shifts.
Let me share something – I don’t shift easily (I am a creature of habit – probably like most). And I’m about to get challenged on this! I am about to participate in a Clairol “Shift a Shade” hair update (this is both scary and exciting to me. Why? Scary because trying something new always scares me a little. Exciting because this has been a year of change for me – with my book and all – and I recognize that with my new career I should also get my style act together). My hair challenge: I’m neither blonde nor brunette and I never know which colour shade to pick. I will be putting my hair in the hands of Luis Pacheco, Clairol Consulting Colourist from Hair on the Avenue here in Toronto, to get his tips on how to shift my shade. I will be discussing makeup techniques with a makeup artist and am dying to get some quick 5-minute makeup tips for a busy Mom like me. A professional stylist will also dress me (their style challenge: I only ever wear black – it is my comfort colour. Good luck breaking me of that habit!).

#Your best self is valuable. Yes, you are busy but take the time to text your friend to check in on her day (friendships need nurturing). Exceed client expectations (they will remember and be return customers). Give your kids undivided attention at the dinner table (this is when you hear the good and bad of their days).
#5 If you don’t do it, who will?! No one is going to put your best self forward for you. You have to make the time and just do it. So your roots are showing and you can’t get to the salon – colour at home! So you are tired – turn off the TV and go to bed. So you feel too busy – slow down (we live in a world where being “too busy” is glorified anyway).
Put your best self forward because you deserve it!
