Earlier this month, I talked about how much of a Spoiled Brat I was.
I cried and pouted because I could not have what I wanted.
I was a mess and then I realized that I could fix it.
I could work with what I had.
If I wanted clothes I could make them myself and that’s what I did.
Well, sort of.
It all started when I ripped some shoulder pads out of an old blazer.
I was amazed at the difference it made.
The old blazer looked new.
It had spunk. It had style.
I was on a roll.
I cut up old shorts, decorated old shoes, and ripped more shoulder pads.
When I was done, I was was amazed at all of the clothes that I had.
The clothes were comfortable.
The clothes were beautiful.
The clothes were mine.
I was happy because I worked with what I had.
I was happy because I had more than I could have ever imagined.
I was happy because I did it myself.
You can too!
