Remember how I was in a wedding a few weeks ago? One of my proudest moments was after the wedding, when one of the groom's aunts came up to me and complimented me on my perfect posture. I was seriously just as happy as if she had told me that I looked like Angelina Jolie.
My parents and grandma have always tried to make sure I had good posture. I think people just look happier and more confident when they're not slouching or hunched over.
I got my second compliment last week when one of the housekeeper's at my work stopped me and told me how well I walk in heels. I know that walking in heels can be daunting. I had the good fortune (?) of being in a sorority in college that really pushed us to always wear heels. I would truck it through miles of campus in 3 foot heels every day. Was this good for my feet? Probably not. Did it force me to walk well in heels? Heck yes. I'd be comfortable running on a treadmill in heels.
Maybe this is an attention whore post, but things like being complimented on walking correctly really make me happy. So when you're walking around today, make sure you're walking tall and proud. People notice!
