I wrote a couple weeks ago on my Instagram page about how I had this xs black dress that I wore to basically every outing. This dress was for movies, hanging out, graduation, dinners and church. I complained so much about not having enough options. Everyone need at least one piece in their closet that when someone says “hey let’s go out” you can depend on that item that’s in your closet. Do you have a dress, shirt, blouse or pants that’s convenient for every ocassion? …..I do.
Furthermore, after complaining to an old friend because let’s face it,what are friends for if you cannot call and complain about rubbish things? Lol…. she encouraged me to be grateful for this little black dress that someone else maybe praying for. Raise your hands if when someone is telling you the truth, but you don’t want to hear it at the moment? *and the hands go up and they stay thereeee*
However, she had a valid point. Rose, don’t be like me. I want to take the place of my friend to challenge you to think a different way. Perhaps your friends have parents who are able to afford nice clothes for them and you don’t have that access. Whatever your story may be right now keep reading and find out you can appreciate more while having less.
2. Being content with your portion.
It’s okay to want more, but it’s not okay when your mind is fixed only to acquire more. Learn this skill and it will help you grow as you live this life. Philippians 4:11. If you are always searching for more nothing you receive will be enough. The dress was not an issue, but the problem was with the owner of the dress.
3. Know that your season will change eventually
Rose, you won’t be at your parent’s house or where you are for long. You will get to a season in your life where you can start applying for jobs and work to buy your own stuff and revamp your wardrobe. The time will arrive when you can take care of yourself. So slow down and chill. I still have my dress as a reminder and there’s time I wear it creatively which brings me to point number 4
4. Work with what you have
Instead of complaining all the time get creative! Nobody knew how many times I wore my dress because each time I added my own flavor to it. Are you adding your own twist to things? So what you are not a fashionista or you may not be great at putting things together, read magazines, get on Pinterest, go thrifting and find clothes for $3.99! You are more creative than you think.
