Some days the day is the dragon and we’re going to slay. It doesn’t matter if we’re in our sweats or dressed for the oscars. Whatever makes our inner diva shine, that’s our armour. It’s about empowering ourselves beyond what we think is our limit. It’s the extra bounce in our step or the glow of a good hair day, yes they sound shallow, but sometimes it’s the little things that make us feel invincible.
There are days when we just feel everything is going perfectly and nothing can take us down. THOSE are the days where we are at our sharpest, our most intuitive, our most on point, and ready to take down anyone who stands in our way.
It’s so easy to feel marginalized and lost in the world, but here’s what I think every day, everyone else is so wrapped up in themselves they forget to notice the world around them. They are so wrapped up in their own head they fail to see the beauty of the world around them. They stare at their screen and forget about the world passing them by. So don’t feel like people are staring at you. Own it, if they are. Be proud. Be brave. Be colorful. Be you. I know it sounds so cliched, but it’s true, I find myself so much happier and less self-conscious of myself because no one is looking at me. And if they are, they’ll see a person who’s enjoying the little things in life as they come. They’ll see someone who’s laughing at something funny in the moment. Someone who can cherish the smile of a stranger who actually makes eye contact, the mutual laugh with someone over a sight we both saw, the ability to dance a step or two only to realize you’re in public but then see no one cares.
So live big. Laugh Big. Love even bigger. Because I believe, what you put into life, is what you get out of life.
