Strutting on Sunshine

Afternoon everybody!

Sometimes life can be so unexpected and foreign; it's a funny thing to talk about let alone think about. Time and time again I realize this for various reasons. Whether I wake up and I don’t feel good or I’m not having such a great day. The possibilities are endless and we never know what’s going to happen next. Often, it is so hard to remain positive in situations that don’t cause us enough joy and we lose sight of what’s really important. After we lose sight, it is so easy to lose the definition of ourselves and believe me; I’ve been asking myself “Who am I?” for quite some time now. 

 I think it’s very common, especially with people at my age, to be uncertain of themselves and question their identity. I also believe that who I am now is different from the person I was a half hour ago. Just based on what I have been thinking about and the tasks I’ve accomplished, I am a different girl in just a few minor ways. Whether one likes it or not, we can’t control everything in life. It could be something that is a positive influence that turns up or a negative that comes at us. Either way, one day at a time is the way to go.

As a Libra, I tend to overthink and be indecisive. I’m sure that’s not exclusive to my zodiac, but still I’d like to use it as a “crutch” to explain how I am sometimes. The truth is, I love to think and be in my own mind. I could spend days in my own little world and I am very much an introvert in that way. One of my favorite things to do is to scroll through the “quotes” section on Pinterest and find solace in the words of important people and even the not-so-important people. Something always reaches out to me in some way when I do that and I use those words to either speak to my mind or cleanse my heart of whatever is going on in my life. I see every day as a new beginning, or at least I try to anyways.

When Julia and I went on our adventure the other day, there was a lot I was thinking about and a lot of people that were looking at me because of what I was wearing. I have to admit; it was a little out of the box. But something spoke to me; a quote I saw at one of the locations we took pictures at. It goes; “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings.” Mary Baker Eddy. I think this really speaks for itself in that it professes that we should see the light, the positivity, the blessings around us and not worry about the things that are out of our hands. We must all take each day as a gift and give it all we got. 

On to the outfit choice: it is very appropriate for what I just was discussing. A couple of weeks ago my mother, sister and I went to a vintage market and I happened to find this awesome skirt. It was only five dollars so I bought it, not knowing if I would use it. So, here I am, wearing this bright yellow skirt with a ruffled bottom. It’s bright so I paired it with a cropped black waffle knit sweater and a turquoise necklace. With so many feminine elements, along with my curled hair and neutral smoky eye, I pulled on my brown combat boots. This outfit is all about taking a risk. So I challenge you to do the same. Whether it’s the outfit you have on or something that you want to accomplish today, go do it and be confident in it.
