My best outfit

This morning I got up and put on my best outfit. Here's the checklist:


Cheery greeting

Look of sympathy

Nod of understanding

Soft, welcoming gaze

The best shirt for others to cry on

Those pants that somehow give anyone permission to look

"I'm fine, how are you?"

Concealer for the little blemishes, like feelings

The shoes that make me feel 3 feet tall but look 10

My backpack- to carry textbooks and the weight of the world

The customer voice

A cup of coffee

My best interpretation of the collective idea of what everyone wants me to be

My glasses


Hopefully tomorrow I'll remember to leave my anxiety and real emotions at home
