As you may already know, I believe in practicing evolutionary acts, if you will, on a daily basis should it be possible.
No guts, no glory has become a phrase that I've added to my list of inspirational mantras!!
Funny thing is, this can also be applied to the way we dress!
How you ask?
Well, let me give you an example.
Just a few days ago I had to run some errands....which consisted mostly of paying bills......arrrgh!!..lol !
Going to my closet, I knew that the ultimate dressing goal was comfort.
So I grabbed one of my favorite kurtis, which happens to be green with small designs all over. And a pair of loose fitting black and white paisley print pant.
Now my sister is a fashion designer, who gives me the do's and don'ts to guide me on my quest to look "gucci, boss, dope" (or however you want to say it!!).....when needed.
So I knew from jump that this was a fashion no-no!
Yet, I wore this anyways.
Why you ask?
Because I could, because I wanted to, because I was practicing and feeling a sense of true freeness with this act. With each look I received, I felt that much more empowered! And I'm no attention whore,trust me!!
I'm that socially awkward girl, standing in the corner, holding a glass of champagne for over a hour, watching everyone else have fun at the party.
But what empowered me was knowing that I accept me, I love me, I live for God and me, not soceity!! ( hey that rhymes, lol!!).
No, onlookers do not dictate my joy, my fashion, my sense of belonging......or not!!
I'm an abstract being and I embrace this.
I ask my readers to try this sometime. Take in how good it feels to not be a slave to visual concepts. To defy societal demands of what's an appropriate or normal dress code within the pyramid scheme.
Walk your own way, be your own righteous leader!!
Peace always~ Shakira
