“Happy looks good on you” …. what can we “wear” …. what matters most?

“happy
looks
good

you”

 I saw this sign last month, on the wall of a shop in Savannah, Georgia.

At first,  I was intrigued by that idea… “happy looks good on you!”  … I even took photos of it….but mostly thought of it as an endearing “slogan.”

As I thought more about that idea, however,  I thought about how I actually DO care about “how I look.”  I pondered about how often I DO care about “what” looks good on me.

Like many women, I  tend to sometimes think about what clothes I’m going to wear, or what clothes I am wearing.  I do sometimes tend to think about what make up I have on, how my hair looks…etc…etc…etc…etc… I  like to  try to “look good”….to “fit in”…to feel “presentable”…

So… a question I’ve been thinking about since I saw that sign is….  might I have been mistaken in my choices?  …. “what” might matter most in “how” a person “looks?”  

What might  we  specifically think “looks good” on us? What might we consider most important about “how” we look?  “How” might we prefer to present ourselves?  “How” might we wish to be perceived?

~

That endearing little sign certainly set off….
lots and lots of reflecting…
lots and lots of questioning….
lots and lots of thinking about how I’m perceiving…what I might be wishing for…
reflecting upon choices I might be making…
considering how I might look more deeply into “what matters….”

~

“What”….actually “matters”….???
“What” … “looks good” on us….???

~

I think that almost everybody, to varying degrees,  wants to “look good.”
And most people might spend a lot of time,  effort and money to try to “look good…”

~

So…what might be…
a  few areas that many women, myself included…might be caring about…???

~

I don’t usually have too much concern about “how I look…”
….but still….
might I be at all mistaken about any of these….????

Certain clothes..???…. “special” clothes….????…
Certain….hair cuts…hair styles…hair colors….make up….???
Certain….jewelry….accessories…handbags…shoes….?
“What matters most…..?”

Maybe… each of “those” contributing to a sense of  feeling more “confident……”
but….
of course!….
there’s so much more….so much “deeper….”

~

Stepping back and reflecting…
what matters most….???
Any…???….some….???…. of those external factors…???
Maybe….perceived as  contributing to  feeling more confident…
….but ….
perhaps…..
there’s so much more…
so much “deeper….”

Reflecting…considering…challenging….expanding my awareness…
going deeper…going wider…going further…

~

What other “factors” might we think  “matter most” to each one of us….
in how we each might wish to be  “perceived”…. ???

Any…???….some….???…. of these  other external factors…???
Maybe….perceived as  contributing to  feeling more confident…
….but ….perhaps….
there’s so much more…
so much “deeper….”

What might “matter” most?
What might matter most in how each one of us “looks” each day?
What might matter most in how we “look” each day?
What might matter most in choices we’re making….?
???….What might matter most….????

~


Maybe…
just maybe…
the  most important aspect about how we each “look” each day
…might be…
the personal demeanor we’re presenting to each other…

And maybe….just maybe…
the most important aspect might NOT be….
clothes, hair, makeup, fashion, accessories…

~

Maybe….just maybe…
the most important aspect of how we “look” might be….
happy looks good on you!”

“looking good…..”
Ohhhhhhh….of course:

“showing” our good heartedness,
“wearing” our good heartedness
as we’re sharing those….
contributing to the well being of people around us

~

So….what might be some of those deeper aspects of
“looking good….” … looking happy…”

Perhaps, a few important qualities that contribute to “looking happy,”
qualities we can “wear” that are contributing to…
how we look,
to our own sense of well being,
to how we’re perceived,
to how we’re contributing to those we’re around,
to how we’re contributing to those we are with…

~

How does “happy” look….????
What can we choose to “wear”….?
