Honestly– my mind is mush and making a whole sentence is taking too much work.
But there is one teeny tiny thing that has been on my mind and heart…
I warned you I had nothing deep to write about.
Working out. It is something I love to do. No. I lied.
I hate to work out. It totally is awful but I love the high I get from working out.
The energy and the self-confidence.
And to be honest. I work out not only for myself but for my husband.
I want to look good for my husband.
That statement is going to cause a lot of uproar.
Because now a days it’s all about you.
What you want to do and what you feel like doing.
And I do believe that you should work out for you but
it’s okay to want to look good for your husband. Or even hot.
It’s okay to want to please him in the way you look.
It’s okay to wear the dress or shirt that he finds you attractive in.
Or even the undies he loves. Yes, I just said that. I debated that. Undies or panties?
Or to grow your hair out if he likes it long.
I almost think that we have forgotten to care about what makes our husband’s happy.
I remember when Eric and I started to date and I was working as a stylist.
One day I colored my hair bleach blonde.
In the nicest way possible he let me know he didn’t like it.
Okay maybe he totally made fun of me but whatever… I’m over it.
The next day I went into work a little early and colored it darker.
Not because I am a doormat or because what I like doesn’t matter…
but because I wanted to LOOK good for HIM.
His voice was the only one I cared about.
I didn’t care if the rest of the salon thought it looked great or made fun of me for changing my color for a guy or my clients loved it.
It only mattered to me if he liked it.
Society tells us that we have to be everything to everyone but really I think we just need to be everything to one.
So friend. If the only reason you drag yourself out the door to run or workout is to look hot for your husband… that’s okay.
And if the only reason you clean or cook or make his favorite meal or dress up fancy or you fill in the blank I am sure there is much we could fill in– is because you love him…
That’s okay too.
