26th Day in a Chic September
For the month of September I plan to document daily steps I have taken towards a chic, elegant and healthy life. My goal is to keep uppermost in my mind the kind of life I want to live. I will be focusing on all the small things I do each day that lead me towards my goal, rather than away from it.
Here are today’s mini-chic accomplishments:
Had homemade soup and salad for lunch. I had already made both, the soup last week and the salad yesterday, so they were faster than fast food and faster even than walking to the cafe around the corner. And cheaper. And healthier.
Was self-protectively aloof today when a few customers were being annoying, saying unthoughtful things. Usually to show them I am friendly and non-threatening, I answer a rude remark with a joke or reinforcing what they are saying.
Today I decided to rise above it and ignore them, in a pleasant way of course. I decided I didn't need to dignify their remark with a response, as the saying goes.
I also plan to use this strategy elsewhere. I don't need to respond to something if it bothers me, just to keep the peace. I can choose to be silent and just smile. I don't sulk though, sulking is horrid.
Am going to bed in the next ten minutes and having a beautiful early night. Daylight saving started yesterday. I always get the ways mixed up and went to bed late only to have to get up an hour earlier. I was fine at work, but my wheels fell off quickly when I arrived home.
If you feel like you want to make September a chic month for you as well, please join me. You are welcome to share your mini-chic accomplishments for the day (or the previous day if you read in the morning) in the comments section. It would be lovely to have you along for the ride!
