I like to think of life as a guru always teaching you what you have to know at the perfect time you need to know it, by challenging you with all kind of experiences. It’s funny to think that my love for fashion, which can be looked at as something quite superficial and meaningless, has taught me a lot as well. For instance, the importance of all of us being different from one another, and cultivating our uniqueness, therefore, to accept to be truly ourselves.
There is a girl I know, really pretty, with an awesome style. First I was a bit jealous, second I tried to copy her, and then I realize I was so silly! Everything that looks great on her is not that beautiful on me, we don’t have the same body type, and the same personality, and even tho our taste are very similar, we can’t wear the same kind of clothing. So every time I see her now I just enjoy her good taste and everything she can wear and that I can’t, without feeling bad or anything, cause it serves nobody to be a bad second version of someone else.
I’m sure you already know it, but let me just remind you that, cherish who you are, in all the crazy and weird details, you owe the world to be completely yourself cause something would be missing if you aren’t. Don’t stop inspiring from one another, but don’t be sad not to look like this celebrity, or this popular chick at school…you’ve got something wonderful to bring to the world that nobody brought before you, and nobody would in the future, it’s in your hands. Use comparison to empower you, not bringing you down! Learn to like your qualities and faults equally, cause very often it’s them that make you special and charming.
Life would be so boring if there was just one kind of flower, if the weather was always the same, and if people all wore black. What makes everything fun is endless possibilities. People differences is what makes the world so rich and interesting, in matter of personality, traditions, culture, beliefs, ways of life, etc. but also in matter of style.
Celebrate who you are.
