KEEPING UP APPEARANCES

Today I've had  the most horrid hair day. Definitely the worst I've had since the Obama administration. And that's saying a lot because I've had some real doozies in the past 8 years. I was low-key worried all day that someone would snap a candid and immortalize me in all my poufy, frizzy glory. 

One of my new year's resolutions for 2016 was to put more effort into my image. I know it's sounds incredibly shallow but hear me out! I made the decision after thinking about the concept of one's image and the ideas that we unconsciously project about ourselves by the way that we carry ourselves. Obviously, one's appearance is not the summation of who they are as person but rather, a representation. And that representation can say a lot. Or, people can deduce a lot from the representation that you put forth of yourself. Now, I don't concern myself too much about people's opinions but I want to make sure that I the image I am projecting is one that I feel accurately reflects who I am. And my image, like my personality and character, my style and taste, my expression of self, is constantly evolving. It's not the same as it was 5 years ago and it  probably won't be the same in 5 years from now but it should always be true to where I am at that particular point and who I am as a person.

Right now, my image either says that I'm free-spirited OR I was too lazy to fix my hair this morning. Both of which are true. In any event, I need to make a hair appointment. 

Love and Light,
