Any time of the year, it is quite simple to criticize ourselves for all the goals we feel we should have attained but did not. The same holds true for our clothing. Every time we open the doors to our closet, the disappointments are waiting to surprise us.
We still aren’t able to fit into the jeans we had hoped to wear this year. There’s the brand-new blazer we got for the particular occasion that never transpired. A year later, the jewelry still hasn’t been fixed.
Girls, now is the moment to dig out the heart pictures to counteract all that sorrow.
What are images of hearts? They serve as your heart’s diary of the times it rejoiced in being you. There are occasionally digital photos, but not often. You weren’t taking pictures because you were too busy enjoying the moment. They do qualify as memories, yes. Since you are celebrating being true to your heart, I like the name “heart necklaces.”
Here are three ways to enjoy some clothing heart pictures so you can go into tomorrow feeling renewed and refreshed.
How We Changed
Some of the outfits in your wardrobe throughout the past year have helped to define who you are. Perhaps you purchased or used certain items of clothing, footwear, or jewelry to identify a better or more recent version of yourself. You recently received a promotion or an award, made the decision to take your business seriously, got married, separated, delivered your first public speech, or launched your first newsletter.
The apparel and accessories you selected to purchase and wear mirrored this more recent version of you. So grab one or more of these out of your closet and express your gratitude for helping you when you gave that speech, looked better at work or at networking events, or both. You are reflected in your clothing. Now, thank them for serving as a reminder of your goals and current self.
Your wardrobe contains items of clothing and jewelry that make you feel fantastic every time you wear them. You decide to wear them because of the unique feeling it provides. If you wear it, you might always receive compliments or feel more youthful, professional, or active. It could also be attire worn when watching a movie or having coffee with a significant other or close pals.
Take those things out and say “thank you.” The heart shirt combines a visual recollection with pleasant emotions. Consider some recent occasions when you wore them. Think back on the times you laughed, talked, and were with the significant people in your life.
Glamor is alluring. Your life’s essentials are your trusted old friends. They are the kind of skirt or pants that look good with a variety of outfits. They are the neutral black purse or pair of black shoes. They never let you down and enhance the appearance of everything else you can wear heart dress.
Imagine them like the supporting actors in a movie. Every major movie actor is aware that a strong cast helps them stand out and become more believable. So put on your trusty shoes and take a moment to admire the surroundings of your life. When Nanny Vi began conversing with the dolls in that hot, rainy spring, Raine Foster was certain she would have to leave her house. Raine observed the washboard sky’s vivid pink glow as the day came to an end, thinking through her tears about what to do. The farmhouse belonging to the Foster family was collapsing all around Raine and her senile grandma.
No one in this generation had the resources to make even the smallest payment to save long-held family homes from going into foreclosure. According to the majority of people, the landscape was littered with lost fortunes and crushed ambitions of all sizes, including their own. She didn’t have any money, or at least not enough to pay for a comfortable seat on the train that stopped in Clinforks.
Thus, the stern advice of the elderly men seated in the few rickety rockers and barrel stools on the sagging front porch of Vietnam’s general store, post office, and cotton-gin office was to “starve here or marry.”
The elderly residents of Bridgeville, about halfway through 1941, had nothing better to do than show up every workday and Saturday morning in their clean but worn-out clothes to rock on the shop porch in coziness. They passed the time watching individuals try to stretch their paychecks to cover supplies while keeping the clerk, mailman, and fix-it Man Company.
They were worn out watching people struggle to put food on the table by pooling their meager resources. Everyone may recall Bridgeville as a place where things were horrible. The frail elders would mutter as they chewed on the ends of their empty pipes that the Foster place, Raine’s home, seemed next on the long line of failures that didn’t seem to be coming to an end.
Being unable to taste or at least smell the luscious aroma of smoking tobacco out the porch elders in a sour mood. The fact that they were denied the luxury of chewing or pipe tobacco because there was no money left in their own pockets or their families’ coffers made the elderly gentlemen a little irate.
The deep-pocket snap of the circular tins housing the golden or tarry shaved leaves wanted to be heard by their fading ears. When Vitman kept the tobacco products stacked in gleaming tins and pouches so close to their lips, mouths, and pipe bowls, but so far away, they would occasionally get up from the worn-out porch rockers and circle the front of the cash register, hoping the air currents would carry a few fragrant whiffs from there. The pain and the thankfulness are now in harmony. Go forth and joyfully set your new goals with the knowledge that your clothes and you work well together.
