If I have a foxy dress I wear it, regardless of a special occasion because…why not?!
"So build yourself as beautiful as you want your world to be. Wrap yourself in light then give yourself away with your heart, your brush, your march, your art, your poetry, your play. And for every day you paint the war, take a week and paint the beauty, the color, the shape of the landscape you’re marching towards. Everyone knows what you’re against; show them what you’re for."
So its fitting that at this point in my life I am truly about self care. Its fitting because this is my golden year (24 on the 24th of Jan) and I am finally at a point in my life where I am ready to leave things/people behind. I have in the past 8 months severed ties with certain individuals who have not been a positive fixture and have taken time to analyze what troubles me and find ways to combat that.
It has not been easy and this is just a start but I feel like I’m finally getting some fresh air after being in a stuffy room for many years. I say “fuck that noise” to all who seek to place boundaries around me. I have little patience for anything that isn’t positive. That means people who are fat-phobic get none of my attention and if they do our interactions are short and stiff. That also means realizing my place in the global community and my responsibility to my brothers and sisters that have no one standing by them in their fight for a healthy and positive life.
I realize I have more to learn, more to be thankful for, more to experience etc. What gives me solace is the knowledge that I am finally at a place of openness where I can go beyond my comfort zone and give love I was always afraid to give.
