Save it for Best
Am I alone in not believing in the saying, "Saving it for best"?
That beautiful creamy soft leather jacket that you keep in the wardrobe and only get out occasionally because you are "saving it for best"
Sorry, but I am really not one for doing that, AT ALL.
A beautiful handbag that sits in the corner, possibly in a little dust jacket and you barely use it, even though every time you do, you enjoy the compliments you receive, you remember how happy the bag makes you feel and you think about possibly using it more often, well you would, but it's for best.
How many ladies out there have jewellery that you wear very rarely? Those beautiful earrings, that were maybe your mothers, or grandmothers favourite. Occasionally you take them out and wear them, they sparkle and you love them.
But they are for b...... Oh, you know where I am going with this one.
I have all of these things, do I save them for best?
No, I don't. I treat them with love and respect but I use them, I enjoy them. If something makes me feel happy, why would I ration that?
And some people may say, that the only reason some things DO feel special is because you use them sparingly, I disagree. Anything that makes me smile, or makes me feel confident, or comfortable, cannot be diluted by using more often.
In fact by using them more often, I add to the story behind the items, I give them more history and memories that will also make me smile the next time I get them out to wear, use, carry.
My mother always said that if you save something for best, you never know. The next time you end up wearing it, may be in your coffin. You may not GET the chance to wear it and enjoy it.
(My mother is a very wise woman)
Take a look around today, what do you save for "best" and why? Can you use it, wear it, carry it, today? Give it a go.
Who says that today isn't the BEST day to wear it anyway?
Let me know,
