What makes me cringe still?

I love that each month our Community Manager, Jimmy, at ChicagoNow challenges us to write about a topic of his choice. Tonight he decided to surprise us with an unplanned one, and he gave us the idea to “Write about something you’ve done in your life that still really makes you cringe”. There are very few things that make me cringe, but I can think of a few things that make me laugh, like my various fashion choices throughout the years.

susanI have brown eyes, but when I was twenty, I decided that I would love to have blue eyes so I jumped on the fad of colored contact lenses. When I didn’t wear those, I often wore blue eyeliner to make my eyes stand out more. Crop tops or belly bare shirts, why not? Cut my hair short on the sides and have the top stand straight up? Sure. How about a little tie with my shirt on Christmas morning? I was game. These were all fun, but my all-time favorite fad was parachute pants and the color royal blue at that?

Young people may laugh or even cringe when they see items we wore when we were young, but I know that these styles will come back. I won’t wear them anymore but it is fun to look back. What fashion trends did you try that now make you laugh, cry or cringe over?

All through my day, no matter where I go, or what I do, I am always looking for the good. I try to find the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.
