Today was different. Instead of hurrying to meet a goal, I decided to ENJOY myself. Savor the experience of dressing up. I had a whole day to myself so I didn't rush. Instead of worrying what others might think of my outfit, I chose something *I* wanted to wear. For the first time, I relaxed as I applied makeup and got pleasure from what is usually a chore. I shaved my legs and tried new poses. I slowed down my usual frantic pace and focused on each step of the process. I was "in the moment." It was glorious!
This all started last week during a chance visit to my local thrift-shop. While browsing, I uncovered a cute dress and matching wedge-sandals, both in purple (my favorite color) and both with animal-prints. They appeal to me on a gut-level, although I realize they are not "mature." Many might believe these items are inappropriate for an old person like myself but, in my heart, I'm 24 years old. The Fashion Police didn't have a warrant to bust into my home and stop me, so I wore these pieces unimpeded. I added a motorcycle necklace given to me by a friend.
Do you ever wear something just for the fun of it?
