So that's why when I made myself smile at people I didn't like in junior high, my feelings toward them always improved.
Sometimes I worry (ugh! not supposed to worry) that I have too much invested in my wardrobe in terms of affection. But here are some practical ways that I make my wardrobe bow down to my greater priorities:
- When I dress myself according to universal artistic principles, I am recognizing God's wisdom above the worldly wisdom of the fashion industry.
- I consider the influence my clothing choices have on others.
- I love to share!
Sharing, however, can get complicated. Life with people is messy. If I loan you something, it is just a temporal item. A pile of threads. If it is ruined in the course of life, oh well.
