In Others’ Words: Life
I like to go shopping for new clothes. I like finding something–a cute top, a fun dress–that makes me feel good when I wear it. I walk a little taller, smile a little wider.
And then I read this quote. Whoa.
Am I equating life–living–to the clothes in my closet? Or are my clothes merely necessary items so that I can go out and live my life?
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think having clothes (fashionable clothes, at that) is to be avoided. It’s just understanding the value of a pair of pants. Or a pair of shoes. Or a funky scarf.
Life equals my experiences–now, in the past, and in the future.
Life is not what’s hanging in my closet.
In Your Words: So what do you think? Do clothes “get you anywhere?” There is that whole “dress for success” creed. What’s the value of new clothes?0 I like this!
