Sometimes they may seem like little bits and pieces of puzzles but once absorbed they become whole. How you take it is what really matters. Just recently, i read somewhere:
When i was seven years old, i wanted to be a singer for as long as i could remember. So much so, i sang in front of mirrors, performed for the living room furniture at home everyday and ran up the stairs like it was a stage singing my heart out. When i was ten, i wanted to be a dancer and danced my heart out at every birthday party i was invited to, i think my mom soon realized she had a crazy little kid in her hands- "Oh watch out now, her she comes". Hahaha. By the time i became a teenager i wanted to be a singer, dancer, an actress, a fashion designer, a baker, a stylist, an artist, an architect and more. Hahaha, but soon realized school came first. First job right after university was in accounting with an oil company but my boss always had issues with my choice of outfits...everyday. Hmm...this kind of job may not be for me i would whisper to myself.
Beneath all the academics and what not, i loved to dress up. My love for fashion has always remained steadfast it shined so bright like this rich red jacket i am wearing. That jacket was presumably designed for "the corporate woman in business" by Talbot but i took it and made it my own. Checkered pieces have always had ways of giving outfits a savvy look yet playful and with nice appeal. A collared shirt over the jewel-neck jacket was a fun approach. The white T-shirt over it, was my alternative way of layering due to the weather. This is me again being me :).
I have come to understand that even as kids, all we ever wanted was to be is ourselves. I had fun and was always my happiest when i was because at the end of the day that is all i really know how to be....is me.
Thank you all so much for reading. Now your comments.
