Maggy London Silk Jacket: Goodwill
Black Travelers Cami: Chicos
Print Skirt: Lane Bryant

Silk….beautiful, luxurious silk…is due to make a big come back for next fall. Last summer, I purchased this silk jacket at Goodwill for $3….I love the feel of it!! Unfortunately, because of our heat and humidity, I do not get to wear it for very long, but it is perfect for the transitional times.

Middle age is perhaps the ultimate of transitions. It is easy to spend this time living in the land of regrets. There are times I allow my thoughts to drift into…

I wish I had learned to eat healthier earlier

I wish I had learned to love exercise.

I wish I had accepted that job or not accepted another.

I wish I had allowed my mother to teach me to sew as she wanted to.

I wish…I wish…I wish…..

I have some friends who literally carry a card in their wallets that says STOP on the front of it. Whenever, they begin to think negatively they are to pull out the STOP card and begin to think of what good is happening in their lives right at that moment. I do not carry a STOP card, but I have learned to recognize the signs. If I give “the regrets” a foothold, they will soon move in and stake a claim. For me, I mentally say STOP, take one day at a time, and focus on my blessings.

NO REGRETS ….just excitement to find gorgeous silk at Goodwill!!  Now that’s a blessing!
