Has anyone every told you “Omg you definitely don’t look like you would work in _____________<—insert occupation here.
I have worked as a real estate agent and for the last 5 years in construction, and it’s always the same issue, fitting into a “mold” of what people think you should look like. I will be the first to admit that when I started working in construction, in order to not stand out I would wear jeans and a t-shirt. But after a few weeks, I started feeling frumpy, not myself and honestly I was not very enthusiastic to go to work.
Once I started dressing the way I like to dress, along with decorating my office space in a way that inspired me and motivated me, I felt happy. I felt sincere and I knew I was being true to myself.
I guess what I’m trying to say, be true to yourself. Make your work space, YOU, have it inspire you! Always do you!
