Let it Out, Let it Go

When it comes to regrets, I don’t have many. This is not because I am confident in all of my life choices. Rather it is because all of the choices, right or wrong, came with lessons. I value those lessons. Through them I learned about myself and others. So, yes my regrets are few. Though there is one that has stayed with me for many years.

As a teenager I had a friend who experienced a loss and learned about it while out in public.  Her reaction was heartbreaking.  She screamed, cried, fell to the floor.  In my inexperience I gave her the worst advice, “don’t.”  I don’t know why I thought it was a good idea for her to hold all that emotion in.  I don’t know if I was concerned by the eyes and reactions of strangers.  I do know that was the wrong advice.

Tragedy hits us all at one point in life.  I now know how harmful it is to hold feelings of pain.  You have to let it out.  In the experience I mentioned above I think I may have been concerned about appearances.  It was the wrong thought at the wrong time.  My focus should have been solely on comforting that friend.

These days I encourage people to let it all out.  It’s okay to express feelings other than joy.  It’s okay to do it publicly.  It’s okay to be down.  Just don’t stay down.  These days I encourage everyone, myself included, to let it out and let it go.  It does so much for the healing process.  It becomes more difficult to recover from tragedy when you aren’t able to properly mourn.

Let it out.

Let it go.

Live.

Poshmark Tips for Buyers

Here’s what you need to know; like, bundle, buy now, make an offer, and follow

Like

As a buyer you can “like” or bookmark items.  Liking an item is comparable to “adding to favorites.”  The feature allows buyers to quickly find an item they’ve previously shown interest in.  Liking an item also alerts the seller of your interest.  Some sellers will send private sale notifications solely to item likers.

Bundle

Bundling is comparable to adding to a cart.  Buyers bundle for different reasons.  Some move liked items into a bundle when ready to purchase.  Bundling several items from one closet can be cost effective.  Some buyers offer flat bundle discounts.  Other buyers will customize a discount for each buyer that creates a bundle.  Bundling can also save on shipping costs.

Of course if you have found the item you want and are ready to buy you can skip the both the “like” and “bundle” features and go straight to “buy now” or “make an offer.”

Buy  now

Buy now is just that.  But what if you found the item you love but you don’t love the price?  If that’s the case, the next feature is right for you.

Make an Offer

Some prices are negotiable.  If a price is listed as “firm” it isn’t but lots of items are.  Don’t be afraid to make an offer.  The worst that can happen is buyer will so no.  Lot’s of buyers and sellers have been able to make deals from the Make An Offer feature so don’t be afraid to use it.

Last but not least Follow.  You can follow sellers that stock your style.  Their items will show up in your feed.  You can also bookmark a seller by “liking” their Meet the Posher listing.

I hope these tips help as you navigate Posh.  Happy Poshing!
