New Clothes, New You!


I read my horoscope every day before I do anything else. For me, horoscopes help me understand what I have to do for the day.

One day, my horoscope read that it was time to remove the past via my closet. In other words, get rid of the clothes that didn't make me look 25, and start updating my wardrobe with clothes that made me look my age. It was time to acknowledge that I wasn't young anymore. I'm halfway to reaching 30 and it's time I look like it. I can only look young for a while, so it was time for a change.

Quite frankly, I agreed with my horoscope. It was time for me to truly look like my age, and stop hiding behind the guy next door image. So I went into my closet and took all what I thought were kid clothes, and kept the adult material. I went shopping at my favorite thrift store and bought clothes that felt, fit, and looked like the person I want to be at my age. I didn't care about the price. I bought my clothes, updated my closet, and left it as it was.

I say all this to say that if there comes a time when you look at your closet, and there are some clothes that you think are too young for you, and you want to look like your age, dump them. Go shopping and update your wardrobe. It's time to show the world what you really look like and how you feel. There is no shame in it, for we are all getting older. The best thing we can do is embrace our ages and be proud of it.

I do at 25 and so can you at any age.
