I'm currently on a soul cleansing journey which is causing me to reevaluate a few things. One of my first cleansing steps was to get rid of excess clothing. This presented a challenge at first but proved to be a key step upon completion because a light material load allows me to concentrate more on things that really matter. In addition to cleaning out my closet and drawers, I am also in the process of getting rid of social norms that I've adopted in the past to either fit in with a "crowd" or conform to expectations others placed on me. This purging process alone has me digging deeper than ever. I refer to it as "clearing my palette."
The other day I turned on Lauryn Hill's MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 album (the absolute gospel by the way), and she was saying things that spoke to my current state of mind. She spoke about how an infinite God who created every one different ON PURPOSE did not intend for us to all fit in one box and be alike. Even though I've listened to the album before, her words hit me like it was my first time hearing them. I began to think of the things I do that really speak to who I am versus the things I do that are shaped by society's standards. Let's just say I got some work to do ya'll.
While I get my whole entire life together over here, check out the fly clutches/fanny packs below by Unikfad. The Naturally Dope clutch came right on time. It reminds me that there's no standard I need to fit into - I am naturally dope already.
Remember who you are is who you are supposed to be. You were not made to dance to the same song everyone else is dancing to whether it be in relationships, careers, creating etc. You were made to rock to the beat of your own tune.
Peace and Blessings,
- A Work in Progress
