Street Style On My Birthday

Processed with VSCO

It’s my birthday (May,3) and I feel really great (because I did some soul-searching and self purging). It feels really good to be twenty-something years old and oh my! the figures are becoming big!. Literally, I feel I have just begun with my life and all along I have always felt I should have done some important things in my life, had some things in my life-it’s just a feeling of “missing out”. 

I have always been that quirky girl, one who doesn’t go with the crowd,one who is always the “odd one out” in some situations (in a good way sometimes, it happens in a nasty way). Most times in life some things I really wanted long ago didn’t come easily and promptly as I wanted it to. I’m like “Maria” in the Sound of Music .If you understand her, then you have found me!

Well, I have learned some good things too.I have been to good places that has helped me appreciate life-I love my families (yes, foster and biological) for holding it down for me when it seemed that I would fall apart. Their love for me can be a bit cray-cray-craaay and so tough but I have always been OKay and now the lines are falling in place for me. This time I want it a little fast! (yes, Dear Lord!)

Lessons I have learnt

  1. Be thankful!:– When you are thankful for the little things, God gives you way more! (FACT)
  2. Never compare your life with anyone’s :- Life is an individual race, yours is way different from others, if they have achieved a lot or appear to be more successful (maybe they found what works for them, find yours).
  3. Be confident– You only got you on this, trust me.
  4. Appreciate your body ( I mean every feature): It’s not okay for anyone to stroke my kinky hair without my permission, it’s not okay for anyone to “mess your body up” in the name of LOVE. That’s NOT love, that’s LUST! you will find out eventually.
  5. Be truthful and honest.
  6. Love YOUrself: Honey, the day I forgave myself of all the shoulda had this-coulda done this-i wish i got into university on time-bla bla bla!! started loving myself. There are people who have everything and aren’t happy and some people who would give anything to be in your shoes!..
  7. If you LOVE someone, tell HIM/HER : The first regret I felt, even my best friend doesn’t know this! and trust me, the best regret you would feel!
  8. LOVE GOD: Like it or nah, hate Him of nah,He is still God and we just have to come to that point where we find his love.
