This year moved real quick, quicker than the last one. It’s been full of some really strong memories, some beautiful as heaven and some not even worth remembering. But each one has been a lesson and each one has taught me one thing for sure- We are gold, each one of us, you are gold, I am gold, we all have that shine within us, and we all get our time to bask in its blinding glory..its only a matter of time and its only a matter of will.
What I have learnt this year will stay with me forever. 2017 is going to be one of the biggest teachers in my 34 years of existence. I have learnt to keep happy, I have learnt to not take things to my head easily, I have learnt to love life, to love myself and not give up, I have learnt to fight and you know what? You won’t get it till you want it so bad that chasing it is the only thing you do. Once that madness settles, believe me, the journey starts to get easier. The more speed breakers you encounter, your ability and skills to cross the next ones become better and better.
Its been a whirlwind journey with some life altering decisions made and timeless memories created (which BTW even my selective memory won’t be able to erase). I have picked up a few new skills and definitely learned a lot of new lessons. And every lesson tells me just one thing- It will be hard, but it will be worth your while and for everyone out there who thinks they can’t; remember, I thought the same and that gave me nothing. The moment I started to think I can, I did. Not that it’s going to be PERFECT, but the success:failure ratio is 90:10, not bad right? And even that 10% is eligible for re-trial till finally its 100% successfully, truly and deservingly yours.
As a dedication to this GOLD LESSON, here is my latest lookbook courtesy TWINKLEDEALS where I recently shopped for my favorite winter trends. This look is definitely GOLD for me not just because of the color of my hoodie but also because it was shot and styled on a day that made me so strong and resilient. I love Velvets and this over sized hoodie was just the perfect kind of winter fashion I wanted to add to my wardrobe. Its for women who are confident about their bodies, its about embracing your true self and loving yourself for what you are because that is the biggest super power.
Also, I can’t stop crushing over my military boots as this trend is definitely forever here to stay! Team them up with pants, or dresses or skirts- the results are going to be strong and powerful as you are!
As we step into the new year, lets just take a resolution to make way for ourselves without being overtly selfish but being strong about our belief. Lets shed the endless layers of pretension, fear and submission to be our favorite brand of GOLD- personalized to the very soul.
