How many times have you stood in front of your closet in the morning with a blank stare on your face? You know what I mean—those moments when you’re standing in front of an entire wardrobe stuffed with more clothes than you probably even remember owning while thinking about how you have “nothing to wear.”
I know I do it all the time, and I hate that I waste so much time and energy on what my clothes look like, of all things.
For some people fashion is everything. They walk, talk, live, breathe, and constantly Instagram fashion. If that’s your passion in life, I get that. It’s important to pursue the things we love. I’m not here to bash the fashionistas.
I also understand that dressing nice boosts your confidence, gives others a great impression of you, and even makes you feel good. Dressing well isn’t a bad thing, and I’m not saying that we shouldn’t even try to look good.
The point I’m trying to make is that there are FAR more important things in life than which top you’re wearing.
I just want us to take a step back on those days when we get caught up in what to wear and reevaluate our priorities. At the end of the day (read: the end of your life), it won’t matter what brand name is on your shirt, what color shoes you wore with that outfit, or which cardigan you chose last Tuesday.
Instead of focusing on what we wear on the outside, let’s focus more on how we clothe ourselves internally. (Did you just picture organs with hats & scarves? No? Just me? Well this is awkward…)
I created this printable so we can all remind ourselves about what’s really important when we caught up in the materialism.
Let’s begin to focus on clothing ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience instead.
After all, it really is what’s inside that counts.
