After two infants and a pandemic (and numerous different stuff that contributed to my persistent melancholy), I used to be not carrying garments that made me really feel good. I’m additionally within the bizarre place of being midsize (14ish) and 40, with private model that leans funky (plenty of coloration, huge earrings) in a spot (Colorado) that leans into gorpcore and impartial fundamentals, so like the place am I purchasing?
Sooner or later whereas I used to be in a neighborhood thrift searching for Halloween costume bits, I began trying within the garments, and I haven’t stopped. Eliminating numerous outdated stuff and slowly gathering new items that match my present physique, life-style and elegance pursuits has been so good for my psychological well being. Simply this week whereas I used to be out having pizza with my household, a lady approached our desk to inform me she cherished my model, and it made me really feel actually seen!
Completely acknowledge the privilege of getting the time and so on to do that! And shout out to my SSRI for the renewed curiosity in investing in myself 🙂
