I looked at Taylor Swifts outfit to the VMAs and I thought now that's a first, why is she wearing Miley Cyrus' clothes? I read some comments 'yabbing' her, asking WTF she was wearing and why she was such a hot mess. It's really no biggie but you do know how red carpet dresses in the US are a huge deal so... Just waiting to see how Joan Rivers will slaughter her for this piece. Speaking of Joan Rivers I recall hearing Joan and other fashion critiques complaining about Taylor's sense of style, yeah she's always impeccably dressed, too impeccably dressed; so much so that she never dresses her age! "Taylor you need to start dressing your age!" "Taylor you need to stop dressing like a 40yr old woman when you're half that!" "OMG Taylor, the dress ages you totes!". And now Taylor decided to listen to them and "dress her age" and look what happened; it was a mess. It's the worst I've ever seen her look. You see why it's important to just do you sometimes?
We all know what works for us. I remember when I was about to start the blog someone kept on telling me to do either of two things; make it a gossip blog or knowing that I'm someone who's very open about sex and sexuality, make it a sexually explicit blog. First off, I would (have) completely failed at gossip blogging; besides not having enough interest, I'm too lazy for that kind of blogging; that's why I never fail to comot cap for Linda, Laila and co. As for the explicit sex thingy... I gave that more thought but I couldn't see any future in that for me, seeing as I was also struggling to strengthen my spirituality it just didn't seem wise. I also didn't want to do any kind of blogging whereby I would have to hide my identity or blog with a pseudonym. So I thought you know what, I'll just do me. Not saying it's perfect or it's been fantastic but if I was doing either, I would have lost steam by now.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, you know yourself better than anyone else does. You know your strengths, struggles, wins and weaknesses better than the next person. Look what could happen when you try to please everyone else and not do you, you may just make a colossal mess out of things!
PS though: This is no excuse not to work on the crappy aspects of your personality/character flaws. LOL.
