“i just really like this and I don’t know why?…..”
I’ll tell you why.
have you ever held something in your hands or saw something and said that?
when he created you, he decided what things would make your heart stir. what colors. what smells. what textures. what seasons.
and he decided that he was going to make you absolutely perfect to him and absolutely unique to him because that’s just the way he is.
so when you like something…a painting, a blanket, a nail polish color, a beat up old table, a rusty kitchen scale, a chair, a mirror, a scarf, a side part, an eyeshadow, a rug, skinny jeans, flare leg…if it makes you smile…then you find a way to get it, and you own it.
don’t second guess yourself.
don’t ask your friend what she thinks. then your mom. then your other friend.
because chances are they’ll all have different opinions or will slip and say *something* in some way that will make you think that the things you like are silly. and then the opportunity to be you and wear what you like and decorate how you like will fade away and you’ll wonder why things just don’t feel *right*.
and it doesn’t take money to feel like you. the notion that it takes money to decorate how you want and dress how you want is basically allowing the retail beast to win.
there’s always a way to be you with your current resources. always.
i like white. I can’t help it.
anything that’s white draws me in like a seagull to a French fry.
or turquoise. or robin’s egg blue. or yellow. or red.
or if it’s metal. or rusty.
but if I listened to everyone who tells me white is crazy, then I’d be trying to cuddle up on some black leather furniture.
love what you love.
and don’t apologize for it.
