Advice from Gary

13 Apr

A friend of mine shared some great advice with me a few months ago.  He told me that when he wakes up in a sour mood, for whatever reason, he puts on a tie before he leaves his apartment for the day.  Ties make him feel better, he explained, and he stands out since he does not work in an office where ties are the norm.  People compliment him all day long, and the bad mood from the start of the day disappears.

I think this is brilliant.  I’m not sure I have such a sure fix like a tie, but sometimes one simple item – a necklace, a favorite shirt, a pair of shoes – can make a world of difference in how you feel.

Wise words, sir.  Wise words.

    Sage wisdom, I say. Sometimes I wear a dress that other people love (even more than I do) just to get the compliments.
