I probably wear this outfit — or something almost exactly like it — almost once a week these days. Those layers work well for the warm/cool fluctuations of spring.
The basic outfit recipe has three elements to it: skinny jeans + tee + long cardigan. Easy.
It’s worked for me in the past. It’s working for me right now. And that’s something to be excited about, especially as I’m trying to practice contentment with my wardrobe.
These past few weeks, I’ve had a hard time finding contentment. Something about springtime has me itching to buy new clothes like crazy.
But the other day, I realized something:
If I’m struggling to find contentment in one area, perhaps I should begin practicing it in another area.
Contentment breeds contentment.
It’s all connected. Contentment probably won’t become our resting pulse until we invite it into other areas of our lives. Over time, we can begin nurturing that bit of contentment with other things that create contentment. Maybe yoga. Maybe meditation. Maybe volunteering. Maybe church. Maybe reading a series of books.
Contentment is a journey. We can cultivate it in a new area, see where that leads, and then take the next step.
One step at a time.
So, two questions for you today: First, is there an outfit recipe that you’re repeating all the time these days? How long has it been a go-to outfit for you? And second, how do you cultivate contentment in your life? Do you find there are certain activities that foster contentment? I’d love to hear your perspective.
