Ok…so you are a little down in the dumps. Valentine’s Day has come and gone and your ex is nothing but a mere carmel chocolate found on the bottom of your heel…still there but needs to be scraped off before ruining something else. We have all been there…I’ve been there and while you do need time to lament about losing him and all his baggage…today might be a good time to pull out your favorite heels from the bottom of the closet. You know the ones you haven’t worn in forever because his idea of fine dining was Olive Garden.
Step 1: Make a list of five of his redeeming qualities. You know when you can’t get past two the dreams of tomorrow are better left in the past. Instead make a list of your redeeming qualities and don’t stop until you get to page ten.
Step 2: Go buy yourself an expensive bar of Godiva chocolate and eat all of it. There are no calories when healing so let this be your moment of salvation and lick the paper if you are so inclined.
Step 3: Cover all of the mirrors in your house- unless you are built like Gisselle and prance around the house imagining yourself as twenty pounds thinner and nothing less than fabulous in your best lingerie and of course those heels I told you to take out of the closet. I would like to warn you to do this when the kids are in school or with no chance of your teenage sons coming home with their friends…who needs more disapproval.
Step 4: Visit all of those websites you have been dying to venture through ( a good one to start is DeborahStilettos.com) and buy something with all that mad money you now have that you don’t have to buy him a birthday present.
Step 5: Don’t shave your legs for two weeks as a sign of freedom of being sexy. Of course this is best to do in the winter or when you don’t plan on wearing a dress or a skirt. And pray…you are not in an accident.
Step 6: Say goodbye to your thong for at least a weekend. Come on…you know they are horrible. We all wear them because someone told us they are sexy…but nothing is sexy about wearing dental floss as a rectal themometer. So freedom ladies until you are ready to date again.
Step 7: Be kind to yourself and take a minute to laugh at this blog. Breaking up is hard to do but adventuring into a new life of fabulosity is sweet success. And don’t forget your heels.
