Outlook and outfit

While I was busy being hysterical, I got a text message from a dear friend.

"You can't control what happens to you throughout the day, but you can control two things: your outlook, and your outfit," Livia said, because she knows me. She knows that even though it's a little silly, in that moment I couldn't think about how it was all going to be ok. I needed to think about accessories instead.

So guess what. This week I wore my shiny red shoes. I wore my favorite green jacket. I put on make up and jewelry, and I made it through the week. And sometimes, that's what matters.

Outlook and outfit. Outlook and outfit. Outlook and outfit.
