Step aside Paris, Sydney’s turn has just arrived. The Mercedes Benz Fashion week is just starting to heat up, with young designers and fashion retailers such as IXIAH & Freelance Shoes showcasing their latest and next season’s designs.
Some say that being into fashion is rather superficial. I’m going to disagree, and disagree a little more, O and one more I’ll disagree. Miss Coco said it well, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. It is in the sky, in the streets, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”.
Kindness if fashionable, generosity is fashionable, passion is forever stylish, simplicity is trendy, individuality is sexy, and composure is damn fine.
Put all that aside now, if you can’t choose between a vegan or a pot head, choose sweet, you’ll get lots of lovin’ and you get to eat some meat. How this relates to fashion? Just press play. A voice that doesn’t date, and what doesn’t date always remains relevant, and relevance is affected by time, therefore; being timeless is fashionable.
They say, you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have left- perhaps this is true, it’s a pending notion. On a special day like Good Friday it’s the elements of sacrifice that are heightened.
The term is defined as an offering for a higher purpose. Its magnitude is far deeper than the eye meets, it varies from person to person, and it’s grant. Represented as the purest and most selfless way to love something or someone, I question whether you have ever had to make a sacrifice for a purpose based on a circumstance? If so, hold that thought.
Easter means magic and miracle. It exemplifies elements of love, sacrifice, suffering, uncertainty, and questions justice. It ties in with patience, with comprehending what cannot be understood; it juggles the concept of faith, how and why?
But to make it all fit isn’t often the case. No love comes without an expense, whether it’s yourself, a loved one, your family, your friendship, your career or anything that might be affected. In most cases one or more of these elements will suffer for the greater good of sacrifice.
It’s not always fair, no. But if we can count on something in this season it’s the presence of faith because “To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see” Hebrews 11:1-2.
I was recently introduced to an application called ‘Quora’ whereby an individual is able to select their topic of interest, ask questions and have them answered by professionals and members of the public.
Now, the purpose of this application is to share knowledge and experience, but as always I came across an interesting one, and by interesting I mean completely ridiculous.
One asks: Why should I provide my knowledge to ‘Quora’ for free?
Politely enough someone responded by quoting Eleanor Roosevelt saying “When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die”.
Moral of the story: There is such a thing as a stupid question. Since time is money, this selfish human should be charged for the 2 minutes he wasted of my time and yours for being ignorant.
Luckily, someone balanced the above question by asking: Which is the most inspiration quote in the world? And as you know it, It’s Michael Jordan experience that takes the floor :-
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games, 26 times I’ve trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over in my life. And that is why I succeeded”.
