Learning from Men??

Here was my assignment for the day, it was under the topic of what women can learn from men: Look in the mirror and REALLY tell yourself you look fantastic.

My husband regularly praises himself, so I figured I should be able to as well. Apparently, self-praise is something that men are great at and most women are not. At any rate, I tried it today. I instantly felt silly, but the feeling did eventually pass. And when it did, I actually did feel a bit better about myself.

Especially considering I had on my tight jeans, with a little bit of hangover - and no it wasn’t an alcohol related hangover. Don't get me wrong, I do occasionally have those good days where I think I look hot. You know the type of days, when everything just looks right. It just wasn’t one of those days today.

Though the confidence boost was a positive thing, I may have gotten carried away. I made an arrogant joke to my husband. He often does this to me, so I didn’t think much of it. Turns out he doesn't do so well with it coming from me.

Oh, well. It is not like it is my personality type to be egocentric; I just got a bit carried away. That aside, I have decided to continue the mirror practice. It can't hurt right? And it makes me feel good, even in my chub-hugging jeans. --Nicole
