Back to Basics

Hola Amigas!

Someone says, make a career. Someone says, make a home. Someone says, you are too fat to wear that skirt. Someone says, that dress is meant for a voluptuous lady. Someone says, you should be married by now. Someone says, why did you marry so early. Someone says, you are a lousy cook. Someone says, you spend way too much time in the kitchen. Someone says, you are a terrible mother. Someone says, you are overbearing. Someone says you look sloppy. Someone says, your red nails are too slutty for office. 

We have all been there. Done that. At least one... if not all.

Your life is your story. The only one in which you will be the unquestionable lead. The only one in which you have the chance to say and do all you can. The only one through which you can show the world what you are made of. The only one that will be your legacy. Write it the way you want. Don't let the the world pen it for you.

At least once in a while, dance to your favorite tunes alone till your feet hurt. Eat a whole cake in one sitting without worrying about your weight. Wear your prettiest shoes to the supermarket even if it kills your feet. Wear the most seductive red lipstick and look into the mirror to seduce yourself. Watch the same movie over and over till your head explodes. Smile at a stranger even if you think you look like a fool. And love someone unconditionally because you will live just this once.

*P.S.: After reading various controversial news articles about Abercrombie & Fitch and it's history of body-shaming, I have stopped buying anything from their stores. However, since I do not want to waste my old purchases, I continue to wear them.
