Higher Standards

Whatever you decide, don’t let it be because you don’t think you have a choice.

Hannah Harrington

It’s not just about saving money. If you want to encourage the production of quality, don’t buy cheap. Yes, you can go to Walmart or Target and get 25 pieces of clothes and save some cash, but you’re going to keep them for a year or two tops, and then you’ll need/want something else.

Cycling through clothing every couple of years is your choice, but unless you expect to grow or shrink, it’s not the best choice you can make. It’s about quantity, sure, but getting more doesn’t mean better, it just means more. You can listen to the industry that encourages the massive consumption of cheap stuff with little value, or you can maintain a small closet of just the things you love because you understand the quality behind them. Clothes are just one example. Keep the highest standards you can and witness the changes your choices create.

It’s our choices that matter in the end. Not wishes, not words, not promises.
