What Not to Wear

“Even the elephant carries but a small trunk on his journeys. The perfection of traveling is to travel without baggage.”
– Henry David Thoreau​​​​​​​

I subscribe to a newsletter called “Next Avenue” because I enjoy their articles about dealing with aging and all of the joys and challenges associated with that experience.  I also find that it has a universal application for all ages in the area of Health & Well-Being, Money & Security, Work & Purpose, Living & Learning and Caregiving.  So, even though I usually end up “unsubscribing” to many of the newsletters I try; I have kept this one active.  I read it and I enjoy it.
Side note: This photo was taken by my daughter’s friend, Rene.  They’re in Africa now and loving every minute of their adventure.  Thought it was appropriate for this week’s newsletter!
This week, in “Next Avenue”, I read an article titled “What Not to Wear After 50”.  Thinking the article might have some tips for me (I’ve always been interested in fashion) but also thinking “I’ll wear what I want!”, I was pleasantly surprised to find the content was about carrying emotional baggage!  
The byline is “You won’t find these tips in a fashion magazine, but they will make you look and feel better”.  Here they are:
1. The Weight of the World.
2. Shame and Regret
3. Rose-Colored Glasses
4. Stiff Upper Lip
5. Too Many Hats
The pictures accompanying the “tips” are amazing.  It’s so true that these things can affect how we look at any age!
I would add:
1. A Negative Attitude
2. Arrogance 
3. Resentment
What would you add to the list?  Are you wearing something that doesn’t make you “look” good?
I’d love to hear from you at docbeverly@aol.com about your thoughts. I truly would.
