Welcome back to my daily blogs everyone. It is always my greatest pleasure to be writing these daily blogs for you. I write spiritual life lessons that I have acquired in my lifetime, hoping that you will take these lessons into consideration, and incorporating them into your life. I write about dreams, visions, and life experiences that I have had over the past few years.
Todays blog is a life lesson. It's not a dream, but I'd lean more towards placing it into the life experience category.
I titles this blog, "Dress with respect." Many people in this world dress sloppy and don't care about what anyone thinks about them. They say, "As long as I do what I want to do, that's all that matters." In the words of Solomon, "You say you can do anything, but not everything is good for you." I completely agree with this proverb. One of the reasons why I admire Solomon in the Bible so much is because of his great wisdom. I highly encourage you to read the book of Proverbs in the Holy Bible.
When I was younger, I used to go out in a tracksuit. I never thought anything of it. My father always dressed well, and presented himself with respect in the eyes of the public. When I went to meet people outside, they would look at my father, and their eyes would say "wow!" Then, when they look at me their eyes would say "He's not dressed too well today!"
Everybody treated me as any ordinary person, but I noticed everyone treating my father with great respect. I wondered why?
When I got a bit older, I tried to go out in my usual tracksuit, until my father stopped me when I came downstairs. He said, "You're not going out like this anymore, go change into something dressy." I replied, "But I always go out like this." He answered, "If you don't want to change, stay home. You're not coming with me." Now, I love to go out with my father. We talk, we play around, we joke, we eat, we do so many things together. I ran straight upstairs and came down with clothes that were dressy but didn't match. My father looked at me and said, "Come upstairs, let me pick for you." He taught me how to match my clothing, and he taught me which types of dressy clothings are best to get. Clothing that really makes you stand out and not any ordinary dressy pants and shirt. He picked my dressy outfit, and then he said, "Now you're ready to go out."
I must admit that I felt strange. I'm dressed differently than I've been dressing for the past many years. When I was going out with my mom she let me wear whatever I wanted, but now I have to dress in dressy pants and a dressy shirt all the time. I didn't like it. But, it made me feel different. I don't know how to explain it. When I dressed in my tracksuit I felt tired, bored, heavy, unwanted. But when I put on my dressy clothing I felt active, engaged in conversation and with the world, light, and everyone wanted to speak with me.
When I was sitting in our Range Rover driving, it still felt a bit strange. Sure it felt nice to put on the nice outfit, as it lit up my mood tremendously, but I still felt strange about what the public would think. This was most likely because I've never experimented this before.
As soon as we got to our friend for coffee, everybody walked straight to me and complimented me. They said, "Woah, Roberto! You look like a very handsome young man today." Another said, "I like what you're wearing. You're dressed very well." And many others complimented me on a very high note. Sure, it took some time, but I was definitely glad that I listened to my dad on this one.
The main lesson is, we sometimes do have to think about what other people think. They treat you in a more uplifted way when you dress well. Today, do I miss dressing in tracksuits? Absolutely...not! I wear them to sleep now. You'll never catch me outside in a tracksuit again. If you do, I'll buy you whatever you want. I'm just kidding. I can't afford it yet. But I will say, "You got me!"
I am excited to share my spiritual life lessons with all of you. I thank you sincerely for joining me on this journey. I will be sharing every spiritual lesson I've learned in my life, every story of my father's life, every spiritual dream I had that came true, absolutely everything!
