This is #32 of 108 Ways to Livin the Moment. Let’s take back our lives one beautiful, funny and delicious moment at a time.

#32 of 108:  Style Your Thoughts

I will be the first to say that there are insects who have better style than me.

For instance, the butterfly has those fancy wings.

I wonder if a meager fly thinks, “There’s that goddam butterfly with its fancy wings.”

In which case, I would say to the meager fly, “But style is so much more than how you look.”

Elizabeth Gilbert said, “You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes everyday.”

So be aware what you are putting out there. Negative thoughts are bad style, let alone bad etiquette.

  • When you are entangled in an angry thought about an ex-lover, think of yourself in a chinchilla half shirt and knee pads.  Angry thoughts are that ugly.
  • When you are energy-slashing people with thought-sabres, think of yourself in a crotch-searing magenta unitard jogging down the Champs Elysses. Thought-sabres are extremely poor taste.

Remember, evolved people receive your thoughts quicker and more clearly than your emails.

So make sure you are in control of the highly advanced technology that resides in your skull.

What better time than the Fall to be stylish, classy and beautiful, if not in what you wear…then certainly in how you think.
