I’m reading through the outlander series and I had an epiphany. It may not be perfect, but it’s what I have. It being personal belongings. If you aren’t familiar with Outlander, it’s a part time-travel, part romance, part historical fiction book series. The author, Diana Gabaldon, takes a lot of time to write-in descriptions of darning socks (or mending fill-in-the-blank) because it’s the 1700s and if you had a hole in your sock you made it work!
So, maybe my shoes don’t work perfectly with my pants, or blush shade is a little bright or pantry storage containers are all mismatched, but it’s what I own. Sometimes it’s practical to sell and replace, but maybe more times it’s better to work with what we have and accept it. And, possibly, then we can stop thinking about finding the perfect white t-shirt so much.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this? I go back and forth. In earnest, I want to find the perfect thing so I won’t have to think about it anymore, but inevitably a lot of time is still spent during the researching phase.
* I didn’t want promote anything in this post, but I did want to mention my Reebok shoes were gifted. Phoenix’s shoes were sent to us for a campaign, but first they sent the wrong size — an adult size that fit me! I’m one step closer to being a soccer mom in the 1980s. I just need some really plush socks.
