Day 206, July 23

"No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up."

I found this in a list of "life guidelines" a friend sent to me.  Immediately, I knew I needed to include it in this blog.

Get up.  Somedays, I have a hard time getting up.  When the dark days come upon me, I struggle just to get out of bed.  So, the advice to "get up" immediately resonated within me.

Dress up.  Another one of those things that I sometimes fail to do.  Too often I'm content to stay in my "grubbies," those ratty clothes I wear when working in the yard.  This is especially sad when I realize that I feel better when I'm nicely dressed.

Show up.  That is probably the most valuable part of this quote.  How many people these days fail to show up for life?  They don't show up for work.  They don't show up for parenting.  They don't show up for church assignments.  Sometimes they have excuses, sometimes not.

So, for today, I am grateful for those who get up, dress up, and show up.
