Did I even shower today? I’m too ashamed to even admit how often I ask myself that question. Seriously… Did I even take time out of my so-called “work day” to wash my butt? I mean, chances are that if you have to ask yourself, then the answer is likely ‘No’.
In fact, it may have been ‘No’ for a couple of days in a row. Oops.
That’s just one of the many things that happens when you become a entrepreneur and you work exclusively from home. If there’s no place you need to be and no one to really judge you over the number of days you’ve been wearing the same underwear (don’t say ‘Ewww’ because you totally do it too)… well, sometimes you skip a shower or um, 3. Gross.
‘But can’t you just…?’
I know what you’re thinking, because I had the real cute idea to set an alarm clock, get up at the same hour every day, force myself to have a shower and put on clean clothes too. Aw, you’re idea is so darling. Don’t get me wrong – it has to eventually work for someone, right? I mean why otherwise would people keep suggesting it?
Probably to make themselves feel better. I’ve dished out that same advice more times than I remember. And I did it from the comfort of the pajamas that are dangerously close to standing up on their own. You’re welcome.
‘Well I don’t have that luxury…’
I get it. You probably have a partner, maybe even a few kids. You have to lead by example and that means at least spending 5 minutes a day letting some scalding hot water spray down on you before your teenager uses it all up for the third time this week.
But me? I live in a world where I answer to almost no one. Well, I answer to 4 cats, but they don’t really care how bad I smell so long as I’m a good human and I serve them food.
You see… My plus-one Jeremy is away for work a lot. Don’t get me wrong. The pay is great and all and I consider us incredibly blessed and fortunate. But when he’s away, sometimes it for the whole week and maybe even to a different country.
Shower? I have no one to impress.
I did. I actually showered today!
I’m not even going to lie. I considered putting it off, but I woke up really cold for some reason, and I decided a really hot shower was a fabulous idea.
Not smelling bad is certainly a perk.
Not scaring myself when I look into the mirror is another.
This is whole not showering thing is common among entrepreneurs…
Seriously. This whole blog post is legit. I know I’m not the only person working from home who has skipped too many showers for the sake of my business.
Have you showered today? You don’t have to tell me – although I promise that your secret is safe with me! Just a friendly reminder from one entrepreneur to another…
Go wash your stinky self.
