The body was willing, but the mind was very weak today. I started this blog so early this morning, but I couldn’t even make it out of the starting block. Writing block happens, I suppose. Sometimes even people who spend the entire day rambling misplace their words. Staring aimlessly at the monitor didn't work, and eventually I just wandered away. My job allows me to work outdoors at times and for today, the words were written out there, hidden in the buzz of insects, whispering on the wings of passing butterflies, sung happily by flitting birds.
When we work so hard to please others, at times we forget to please the one we should love the most. Ourselves. I’ve been blogging Fashion For Life a lot this week, hard to believe it starts in just two more days! YAY! Everything I have tried on is just so wonderful! I know you will all enjoy the event this year! It’s just, sometimes, I can’t be shown what to wear. I am stubborn that way. I seldom wear from just one designer preferring to mix and match, but I’ve mostly stayed loyal now for about a week. But retired lil Cao’s have to crawl back to their comfort clothes, drag them on and feel like themselves again. In deference to my lil Dragon Draakje, I didn’t throw on my always conveniently tucked away sequined knicker shorts, I did though, pull on one of my many favorite *SoliDea FoliEs* outfits. Luckily, I didn’t even have to snap the pic. I dragged my heartfriend and fellow model Nattyzuzu (Natzuka Miliandrovic) behind her camera, she chose some incredible poses from her store Flighty Pixels Poses and she so kindly and gorgeously captured the look.
The take from? Yes, here it is. Written just for you Nattyzuzu. There are times when you are asked to do so many things. And people don’t realize how busy you truly are. So even though the body is more than willing to help, listen to your heart, listen to your mind. If it is tired, uncreative, feeling uninspired, your work wont be its best anyway. Kindly tell the people asking for help you would love to, you just can’t do so at this time. As friends they should truly understand and appreciate your honestly. Because who wants help from someone whose heart is only half into helping them? And if they are upset, are they really friends a’tall? Well, there ya are. I found my comfort clothes, now if I can just get a certain little dragon to make me some mac-n-cheese, life will be perfection!
