Good morning! Coffee at the ready, dressed for the day in a new outfit. It’s a long, knee-length black, yellow, and white floral shirt, black legging, and a light grey tunic. Why mention this? Well, it’s sort of fun to become more of a clothes horse. It is new to dress for me. I mean I always have but, when you’re married you also dress to please your honey’s eyes too_____. For everything new and artsy I put into the wardrobe, I am taking out something I do not wear or like that much! This long shirt is opaque, yet a bit transparent, so an undershirt is needed.
There are things in life we do to express ourselves such as what we wear. I have always got a kick out of those artsy friends who have fun with their wardrobes. They reflect happiness and a fun attitude. I remember when going for my degree, I started wearing colors and having fun with them. People would make comments about what I wore, and my personality. Which in truth was not as outgoing as I appeared at the time. They would tell me “Your so outgoing!” Or I would get compliments with what I wore…a red jacket with black lapels, skirt___I worked in the office. This is a boost to the personality to be seen as such.
The compliments were from nice gentlemen. I wore a particular perfume, Obsession I think it was. This seemed funny as well as complimentary. To have someone lean toward you and smell every time you happened to share the same elevator? I concluded there are fellows who like soft a bit spicy perfumes. The idea when it comes to perfumes is you spray the air and walk into it, not take a bath in it. And you don’t need a ton of it. If it’s a good brand a little goes a long way and will stay with you. I don’t wear perfume a lot, as I am allergic to some kinds, and this is true for other people! If you are allergic to smells it’s not fun!
This is a bit of babble on today! Not my norm. I am thinking of womanliness. That is where these thoughts come from. Being womanly and aging gracefully. Taking care of yourself mentally and physically. If Thomas were here we would touch on what it is for men, do mean think of aging with grace? I think they do think of taking care of their health, or I hope they do.
Well, time to work! The simplest way to look at this is to do what makes you feel good, female or male. It does make a difference after losing a loved one. It helps you move into your new life where you are suddenly single, yes but your all of who you want to become. May these thoughts help someone. No, your not twenty anymore____and that’s ok! What do we know at twenty?
