Humorous Women In the Dressing Room.
We have to smile each day. We have to brighten someone’s day and have ours lifted as well. I had to laugh when I read this quote below:
“My uncle Sammy was an angry man. He had printed on his tombstone: What are you looking at”?! Margaret Smith
Do you sometimes wonder what people are looking at or if they love what you are wearing? Maybe your hair is standing on end or your lipstick is all over your face. Yikes!
I heard humorous women in the dressing room saying:
“What do you think of this? Is this my color? I look enormous! I need more than 5% stretch in this outfit – I’m popping out all over – stretching out of it. Call me Pillsbury”
“Why do you ask me my opinion when you just get frustrated?
“I hate this print. Why can’t I find something like you found – a jacket that fits and makes me look twenty pounds lighter?! My bottom looks twenty pounds bigger! I am over-stacked in this top. Why does a hanger look so attractive in these clothes and I look like a baboon!”
Panic sets in – in the dressing room. Anxiety is written all over the walls.
The conversation went on and on. After a few minutes they decided to leave clothing to someone else, to go buy shoes, to possibly try on some anti-aging cosmetics – look at the scarves and then go to lunch. They were having fun after all; it wasn’t all distressing. They left laughing at their less than exciting experience. They knew what they did not want now, or did they? Laughing eases our stress; do it often.
One cannot help but smile at these communicators. Women talk and ask questions but we often don’t want everyone’s opinion. It might make us make a change or hinder us from buying that beautiful dress – that we think enhances us.
If you listen you’ll learn who people are in personality and character. You will learn often what they are thinking, especially when they don’t know you are listening from behind the wall. Believe who people say they are. They will usually tell you and not realize it. Read them well. Try not to make light of their fears but support and help them through shopping or life decisions when they ask. Do what’s best for them. Make their day but be real, not false. Be true and authentic but with much care.
Laugh with others. Laugh at your own scary thoughts; it makes a world of difference. Hear the humorous women and smile with them. Supporting each other is fabulous!
