Not Getting Dressed To Shoes? Here Is What You Will Miss Out

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized


If there was ever a day not to get dressed to shoes, today would be one. I woke up this morning to a gloomy rainy day. Who wants to do anything?

To top it off, today would be very tempting. You see I have been putting the vegetable garden in the past 4 days. I have bended, twisted, lifted, pulled, walked, balanced, and took a small tumble. All for the love of gardening.

Snap Out Of It!

As a former 5+ year pajama junkie I know it would be a bad idea. Back then I would have easily said, okay. Today when the thought comes up instead of the usual jeans and knit top, I decide to wear my yoga pants, tank top and matching jacket. I now have the best of both worlds.

Here’s What You Will Miss Out

If I did stay in my pajamas the following is what I will miss out should the opportunity arise.


Yes, opportunity. That’s the secret and the payoff of getting dressed to shoes. ‘It is a favorable, appropriate, or advantageous combination of circumstances’. Who wouldn’t want that each day? I am guessing the able-bodied ones that decided to stay in their pajamas today. When I think of all the ‘Opportunity’ I missed out for 5+ years living in pajamas and I realize today how much I starved myself of life.

I could list a long list of opportunities you would miss, but you know them already. Just to get you to thinking, here are a three…

  • Impromptu Lunch Date
  • Getting To The Hospital Quickly For The Birth Of A Baby Or Emergency Surgery Of A Family Member
  • Morning Or Afternoon Coffee Guest
