I had bought this dress for the wedding of a friend's daughter but I bought it with the mindset of something that I could still wear to work. I love this dress because it makes me feel beautiful. These days I need all the help I can get with all the chaos in my life that is keeping depression breathing down my neck. I have noticed the least little thing can waiver my confidence. For instance, yesterday at the gym getting out of the shower, I go to get dressed and the one and only dressing room with a curtain is occupied. <SIGH> that means I have to go out into the population...and what do I see but three super models with perfect breasts, bodies, and long gorgeous hair and here I come, with shower cap and frumpy. I felt soooo badly about myself when comparing myself to them. I had to keep telling myself, "You look good in your own right." I wonder though at what point in my life did I learn or adopt the concept of comparing myself to others? I mean I guess the concept of benchmarking could be derived from this theory but one thing is for certain...benchmarking needs to be done with like entities. I cannot benchmark a woman in her 20's as I cannot turn back the clock, if I could though.....whoaaaa look out world I would be one HOT MAMA :)
What are you thoughts on benchmarking?
