Since everything and everybody else claim the rest of a woman’s day, her morning preparation time belongs to her exclusively. Her pretty-time ritual —especially at the mirror—elevates her spirit of getting her way. It simultaneously protects and arms her to handle upcoming tribulations. She thus achieves better control one day at a time. When repeated every day, her gratefulness escalates for who she is and what she can do. It also helps prevent depression. (I suggest further study at post 806 and the series that begins at 2123.)
My thanks to Ari, who reminded me of this subject. One new or expanded habit can do a makeover in the hearts and minds of women frustrated with their world and with those around them.
