It’s SOOO Nice To Get A Compliment

So, after work today I went for my regular walk.  I walked at Narrabeen Lake as usual, and decided to give my new Ellie shorts a trial run.  I teamed them with another reasonably new Ellie top (Ellie is an American company that makes some really cool workout gear).

 I did my walk, it was a gorgeous spring afternoon, and apart from the one agro duck that decided to have a go at me (I’ve never known ducks to do this, but now I know), it was just one of those days where I was feeling very spoilt to live where I do and felt it was great to be outdoors and able to enjoy it.

I needed to make a stop at the supermarket on the way home and standing in the line at the self-service checkout, the shop assistant said to me “You look very sporty today”. I smiled and told her that I had just been for a walk. She said “You’re lucky you can get away with that, there’s no way I could do it”  I was gobsmacked. It was so weird for me to get that type of compliment from a relative stranger.  I mean, I know that I have lost weight and I am healthier, but recently I must admit I have not been feeling the self love recently.  It was a really nice reminder that I have changed, that I am in a much better place than I used to be, that whilst I know that I am still a work in progress, to the world, I am now a healthy person, a fit person, and dare I say it, an attractive person.  I floated out of Coles feeling 10 feet tall and bullet proof.

Moral of the story, go to the supermarket wearing cute workout clothes and let the compliments roll 🙂
