city by the bay

Dress up just for fun. 
There are people around you who are tired of the monotony but paralyzed by fear. 
They can't do it themselves.  But you can inspire them.

Every place needs a trendsetter. Not in the norm, but in the way that pushes buttons and boundaries.  That makes people question and debate.  That prods open their droopy eyelids.

You know the type of person you want to be.  What is seperating you from being that person?  Visualize the obstacles, give them faces and bodies.  See their taut skin or bony shoulders. 

Now kick them down.  You are a skilled fighter, punching them in the face, kicking in their knees, bruising and beating them until they fall to the ground.  The concrete caked earth swallows them. 
And you are set free.

Dress up in clothing, in silky fabric and strands of pearls.
But also dress up in your life. Do something unexpected, whisper a complement to a stranger.  Each day is a manequin, waiting for you to dress it.
Be daring and different, but most importantly
do what is difficult.

This really makes me want to put on a dress and wear pearls and braid my hair with flowers or silk ribbons.
I'm seriously printing this out right this moment and I'm going to put it on my wall to read it every time I feel too afraid to wear what I really want to wear.
Thank you, a million times thank you - and I'll probably say it again on your next post - for making me feel glad that I am who I am.
