I never needed that curly…..really curly perm back in the 70’s. That was hideous! It may have been the “it look” at the time but it certainly didn’t work for me then, now or ever! More reason to stay true to what you have been blessed with. Also, a constant reminder to never attempt to be something your not….. I tried for wavy hair and got “Annie” instead. If I would of just waited long enough, all the curly, wavy in style look would of diminished in time. Straight hair was soon the new “look”.
Keeping with the “hair” theme…. I never needed my bangs cut with Christmas scissors when I was a young girl! That was a mistake, although my mother didn’t think so. The worse part is, my cowlick was more pronounced! If she only knew!
I never needed those extra pair of shoes that were on sale. Those were a waste of money, even if they were on sale. That says a lot because I love shoes! In thought, I could of used the money for something I actually “needed” or for something that my children could of needed (SIGH).
I never needed to wear high end clothing just to look and feel confident. What matters most is how you feel about yourself on the inside. Being confident in who you are, just as you are, is the best outfit you can put on everyday of your life! Sweats, jeans, dresses are “cover-ups”. However, I don’t ever want to cover up my authenticity. Regardless of what I wear, I allow my soul speak with confidence thorough my eyes as well as my smile. How about you? Fashion is not only material. Fashion can be in “you’, on the inside.
I never needed to question my judgment,to second guess. I always knew the answer. Intuition. It never fails me. I must learn to trust it!
I never needed to be so hard on myself, the world does enough of that already. Forgiving is not so hard, but forgiving myself is. Life is tough enough at times but I learned to accept the things I can’t change.
Can you think of a few things you never needed? I bet you can!
Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.
