Hi all! Hope everything has been fantastic. I'm so grateful for EVERY single comment I've been getting~ I read every single one. But I have been so busy last week, with interviews face to face, phone interviews, preparing for my blog, preparing for parties and ...being sick. I'm currently sitting in my bed with my dog at my feet trying not to cough all over my laptop.
Anyways~ thank goodness I took these photos just before I got sick. I shall now attend to everyone's blogs and thank you all.
I had an interesting time taking these photos for this post. I went into the city earlier that day and I was perfectly dressed for the environment. However I came back to my area (which is a much quieter and conservative one) and bought some ice cream. While I was walking around I got lots of "weird" looks from the locals. It was a bit intimidating and I felt self-conscious. I think I felt they thought I was "over-dressed" or too "loud".
But then, you know, I just took a deep breath and thought, "These people don't know who I am, they cannot judge me on my looks or what I am wearing. I am a good, kind, compassionate person no matter how they look at me". That, and I also had a Madonna song in my head. And we all know Madonna believes in being self confident and to not take crap from anyone else.
In conclusion, I was being stared at because I was in a leather skirt, had dark lipstick and had leather thigh high boots. I was getting "looks" but I should never let it get me down, because I was being myself. Sometimes its easy to forget that message, but I have to remind myself every day, and everyone who reads this post should remember this message too.
