Finding a purpose can be motivating.
I love my family; they motivate me to be a better person.
I love my neighbors and friends; they motivate me to learn more about my community and help our neighborhood stay safe and beautiful.
I love my city; it's energizing activities and beautiful skyline remind me of the capabilities of men and women to develop, create and innovate.
I love my Lord; He constantly reminds me in his Word that I was created for a special purpose.
But sometimes the physical difficulties I face overwhelm all of these exceptional motivators. Finding a purpose within my work at Reckless Resale has been the motivating factor I need to keep working, exploring and loving without the insecurities that accompany poor health and business ownership.
When you see our brand name splashed across you soc media, remember it's all about the wReckage. Resale and Vintage clothing are not landfill fodder, the're not wrecked or ruined because of their age, apparent wear or possible damage. Most likely the wear has polished or softened the fabric and tarnished buckles and zippers giving them a antique and wise appearance. Resale and Vintage clothing have an important role in a circular economy that benefits everyone.
Similarly, I am not wrecked because of my age, my wear or damage. I am wRecked and wReckless and ready to keep moving in a world where being sedentary can be an easy escape from reality. But it can also become a life ending existence.
With a great pair of jeans I match my vintage tops, boots, hats, scarves and sweaters. My confidence is elevated and I'm ready to take on the day; wRecked and ready.
What motivates you? Leave me a comment or connect with me on Instagram or Twitter. Together, we can really make some wReckage!
