Getting ready in the morning is definitely easier with usage. Choosing the clothes for the day does depend on the day, for work I have a stock 6-7 clothe sets that I tend to choose on mood but must be different every day. If it’s a special day I do spend time putting on and taking off a few times to get the image I want. Makeup I can do a full face in about 15mins, CC concealer, powder to blend and remove shine, eyebrow fill, mascara, eyeshadow, lip liner and lipstick. I have been practicing eyeliner but not confident with that yet.

This is all natural now.

I remember setting out maybe three sets of clothes on the bed to help me decide what to wear.
Then it was just two.  Now I have a better skillset and can just look in the closet, for the most part.

I go light on the makeup.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

In my observation of other women, and this certainly applies to myself....
... there are times when I am dressing for the day or for a special outing, that
I may try on several tops, several dresses, etc until I find an outfit that
I am happy with.....

Back in the days of my "previous" self.... I would just put on any "old" thing
and go out the door without any fuss.

It is much more complicated and time consuming as a woman.
