Truth is… I actually started this blog on the 22nd of June, on my birthday. It was an overdue present to myself but it was also really great timing…I was feeling low about where I am in life, where I want to be and how I was going to get there. (you know that feeling of… being defeated). So I started the blog. Then fear took over. I overthink things. I overthink things till I find a way to convince myself not to go through with it. Fear of judgement and fear of failure …my worst enemies. To be honest I really admire people who can just go for it, no inhibitions, and since we’re being truthful , I can also get very jealous of their courage. Tapi doesn’t overthink things…infact he’s impulsive. (reason why he is NOT allowed to enter a shopping mall without me). That’s one of the things I love about him though. He is a big part of the reason this blog exists.
On a lighter note, but still on the topic of fear. A friend once asked me how I manage to pull off a crop top. Truth is my trick is to lift the skirt or pants high enough to cover the “problem area” then strategically place the top where only a little skin will show. Others will say ‘why show the skin anyway?’… I say because I like an element of suprise, and i love this skin i’m in! But hey, if you try it and you feel silly, I ain’t even mad at you.
I looooove this skirt! It gives me life. It was made in Zimbabwe. Dress it up, dress it down, I’ve done wedding, I’ve done dinner. The crop is a basic from Sportsgirl. The lips, a friend from work brought back for me from Japan.
So that is my truth for the week. I have been choosing fear, but what’s great though…by his grace, I have decided to choose courage. What’s is your truth?
