What's your purse-onality? (2)
I had a reality check recently - one of my colleagues whose purse was stolen said: "you would be surprised to find out what is actually essential after your purse or wallet has been stolen!" God forbid! Yes, God forbid but let us reconsider what we carry around so we do not become easy targets. To put the incident in perspective, when discussing with her, she told me that she only set her purse down because of how heavy it was....
Now each time I see someone with a cute or compact purse, I admire their ability to "live light" - I also wonder how they cope or shall I say how they are able to put all they need into that "tiny" purse. Maybe those are the ladies who trust God to provide for their needs (& wants) through those of us with big purses - just teasing - but I trust you get the point!
I was curious to find out if other people give any thought to what purses we carry and what they "say" about who we are...here are some interesting pieces. What do you think?
Like me, you may not agree with some or all of them - it's ok to agree to disagree. The point is people are watching (& as always, judging) us by our purses. It's almost as if you say who you are by the purse you carry and possibly what it contains. Talk about purse (or is it "buddy") language? Well, I have a personal attachment to my purse - it's just like a buddy sometimes - always available to support me.
So, did I just "catch" you reviewing your various purses or your only purse and wonder: "Hmm so that's what some people think?" Would be interesting if our purses/handbags are considered during job interviews - now that is another day's story...one we may never tell.
Well this is a good point to change gears and move on to the next "C" of purses (& purse-onality). Who knows, this "C" may also be considered at interviews...you just never know.
