Suit Up

I realized today that I am bizarre. I would rather be in a suit and tie than in sweats and a t-shirt. Rather than changing out of my work clothes when I get home, I choose to remain in them and do my post work activities in them. Why?

I have recently been watching the television series: How I Met Your Mother and instantly felt like I could relate to Barney, a character on the show, because his motto always seems to be: “suit up” or “nothing suits me like a suit”. These two phrases have made Barney LEGENDARY in my book.

What is it about a guy who is dressed in a suit that makes you think, ‘What does he do for a living’? For all you know that person is a janitor who owns one really nice suit, and a few different ties to keep things interesting, but his attire makes you assume that he is wealthy–or well off. Is that why I love suits? I suppose. I think for me it is more the idea that I am standing out. Long gone are the days where men wore suits regularly to their jobs or out on the town. Perhaps this is my way of attempting to live in that era? Either way, I echo the words of Barney: Nothing suits me like a suit–so SUIT UP!


About Jaxon

I am a spiritual being here to have mortal experiences. I believe in love. Not the love that can be fit in three words: I love you, but in the love that radiates from a couple who cherish one another more than life itself. I believe in love as it has been intended to be: eternal. I believe in progress. Learning from life, love, books, people and inspiration should be a daily experience. There is something incredible about a person who strives to be their best self. I believe in pursuing dreams. Mortality only happens once and is too short to simply sit back and allow it to pass you by. Goals, dreams and those who join in the pursuit of those dreams are what live worth while. I believe in being happy! True happiness is not found. It is a choice. The moment life is seen as being beautiful and is deeply appreciated, the easier it is to choose to be happy. I believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is my Savior, my King and my Friend. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and living His truth is key to my happiness and existence.
