Look At Me!

Oh boy oh boy! It is starting to feel like spring around these parts!

As I did my mise en place last night, I perused my options, looking for something that would hit the spot. There are evenings when I stand in my closet, my boudoir, as I like to call it (literally, the room in which one goes to pout) and feel this sense of darkness and all I want is jeans.

However, I got a new iPad on Tuesday, because my indulgent husband knows how to do Valentine’s Day (okay, okay, my old one was five and a half years old and couldn’t hold a charge for more than twenty minutes.) I was so happy with the camera on it…wow. I have taken pictures e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g since it arrived.

So, given the pleasant weather and my infatuation with my new iPad, wanted to wear something super fun. I wanted to add some new photos to my catalog of the Pantheon in DAYONE. So I went for a Look at Me! dress.

Here, I stumbled across a fabulous way to love the clothes in my closet: Treat them like works of art. Take photos of them as if they were precious jewels. This really helps reinforce the positive brain pathways about each item, and this makes me want to wear them!

…Positive brain pathways being created…

I am super-judgy about selfies. I hate to look at other people’s selfies. But as a method for increasing contentment, particularly with the items in my closet, as I call it, Pantheon of Legends, I am genuinely charmed. If I can’t buy anything new to wear this year, I might as well figure out how to fall in love with my wardrobe!

I am passionate about contentment. This is a challenge, because I am equally passionate about progress. I get up at 4:00AM to chip away at a solution to this monolithic problem: how to make progress on my contentment. Born and raised in the USA, I married a French philosophy teacher in 1999. We have lived in France since 2007. We stayed young and carefree until life threw us two curveballs in the form of little humans one after another in 2015 and 2017 respectively. Now I am a slightly older, slightly more exhausted version of myself, but with mystery stains on my walls and a never-ending pile of laundry.
