My Best-For-Last Philosophy

Thursday, December 4, 2014

I've always been a best-for-last person, someone who saves the best foods and outfits for a later time — as if today isn't quite as worthy. Most of my favorite dresses and shirts I've only worn once or twice because I'm always waiting for the perfect occasion, the “just-right” moment.

And lately I've realized that my best-for-last philosophy isn't, well, the best.

The thing is, I'm forever trying to hold back from being too future-focused, forever stepping away from the lists and plans and calendars I fill out across every medium because I know that it's important to stay in the present. I know that it's important to make the most of a moment, to see the present as more than just a stepping-stone toward something else. Because really, why isn't right now good enough?

I'm not sure I'll ever let go of my save-for-later habits entirely, but I am making a conscious effort to give the present its due — to choose the best for myself right now simply because I deserve it. Besides, otherwise, I may be waiting a really long time to wear my favorite sweater, scarf and boot combo again.
