I have a very particular way of organizing my closet. First of all, all of my hangers have to be white; I really dislike mismatching hangers. I think this means that I enjoy predictability in life. I don't particularly enjoy change, I'm always most comfortable in familiar circumstances. Second, I organize my shirts in rainbow color order, which I think means that I may be a little obsessive about organization. Third, all but four of my shirts are solid colors. Perhaps this means that I am just a solid person. I know who I am and what I want from life. Or maybe this means that I'm just kind of a boring person who doesn't prefer to stand out in a crowd. But, then again, there are some pretty bright and vibrant colors in there. Maybe these represent my happy-seeking personality. On the other hand, you may have noticed that about 30% of my wardrobe is black. Maybe this is an allusion to about 30% of my personality. Perhaps I have a darker, undiscovered, more melancholy side. Or maybe I am sitting at home on a random Thursday evening, waiting for Spencer to get home so we can play, and analyzing my closet because I'm avoiding actually folding and putting away the dang laundry.
I love this video. How inspiring to see someone who has a gift for finding happiness in life. The best part about the story is that right after this feature aired, a viewer called KSL to ask them how to reach David Matson. This man, a dentist by profession, had been touched by David's story, and desired to offer him free dental work as a personal gift. How wonderful that there are good people in this world that will offer aid to a fellow human being in need.
