I don’t usually wear clothes or accessories with inspirational words written on them. It just hasn’t been my style for as long as I can remember.
However, I bought a “LOVE” bangle the other day, because it looked pretty and stylish.
But immediately after I bought it, I thought – Now why did I do that?!
I’m a regular watch wearer, so I have a habit of looking at my wrist to check the time – ALL THE TIME. So if I were to wear this bangle, did it mean that every time I looked at my wrist, I’d be reading “LOVE”?
Love. Love. Love. Love. Love Love. Love. Love. Love.
Uh oh. I’m going to be so annoyed! I’m going to ROLL MY EYES and throw up in my mouth a little, at the need for such an obvious, visual cue to remember something that should really come from within. And if I’m relying on this bangle to tell me THERE IS LOVE IN MY LIFE – well, I feel like it is pointing out what a loser I am. What then? Next I’ll be wearing PEACE. HARMONY. JOY?
Anyway to my complete surprise, a LOVE bangle is actually quite nice to wear. Heh.
The reminder is not so shouty, obvious or mind-numbingly repetitive. I don’t throw up in my mouth. And it’s actually kind of sweet.
In fact, I dig it.
THERE IS LOVE HERE PEOPLE.
NOW I NEED SOME “HAPPINESS”!
Have a great weekend everyone!
