Ya’ll I struggled with this post. Not because I have nothing to say, but because I’m not sure how to say it. When I’m passionate about something I can be very outspoken, but I’m going to try to reign that in. The last thing that anyone needs right now is more fuel for the fires…am I right? So, for fox sake, let’s all take a minute. Let’s talk.
I know you’re asking yourself what does this have to do with style. Well… style is a very personal thing. What one person likes, might make someone else cringe. I LOVE faux leather, I LOVE heels, I LOVE leopard print… to someone else, those things might feel too edgy, or over the top. Maybe you like lace, florals and pearls…and cringe at my style. It’s the same in life, is it not? We are all different. We come from different places and backgrounds and those differences are what makes us who we are, and that’s how it should be. If we were all the same and had the same style, it wouldn’t be stylish anymore, it would be mundane and boring. Heck I have pink hair, nothing boring about pink hair.
Here’s the thing, something that we all have to remember. Heels might hurt your feet and that’s why you choose not to wear them, you might loathe the sight of polka dots and hate leopard print anything. But that’s not true for everyone. So long as we aren’t forcing each other to wear what they hate or that hurts their feet, there is nothing wrong with appreciating the beauty in difference. Just because it doesn’t fit your style, doesn’t mean we should all go without. Remember that style is personal, that the differences between us, make us more interesting. Without difference, we are nothing but cookie cutter monotony.
Remember to be the light, always. The dark only envelops; light emboldens.
