I am a Stubborn Empty Nester
Take my clothes closet. It's looks filled to the brim with clothes for work, play, special evenings out and lots of bathing suits. From the look of it, I must be one social butterfly! Yet, 80 % of the clothes that hang in there anxiously wishing to be picked for wearing, do not fit my body. It is really amazing how just 12 little pounds can affect your wardrobe. And yet, I leave them there as I am 80% sure that soon I will be able to fit into these clothes very soon. It is not my nature to get depressed about this weight gain and the fact that I have to wear the same grey and pant pants everyday of my life. So, I become stubborn.
That's our choice: be stubborn or be depressed. Or be lucky.......
I had lunch with a delightful woman last week who is curious about blogging (blog-curious). She was wearing the cutest day dress, and looked like she was in her thirties. She was however, 45 or 46. I imagine everything in her closet fits just fine, thank you. I imagine she eats right and exercises regularly but I still consider her one of the lucky ones. More of us should be so lucky.
Where do you fall in the categories? Are you stubborn, depressed or lucky?
