Flawed nature

'Don't let anyone make you feel like your nature is flawed"
A few months ago I started reading a book by Reuben L.F Habito called Healing breath: Zen spirituality for a wounded earth. Notice how I write "started reading" its not the kind of book that you just rush through, it needs to be digested slowly with understanding. one of the issues discussed in the book focuses on seeing things for what they are. Many people would interpret this differently and I think that's all part of the Zen spirituality, understanding things for yourself.

Growing up I have had people point out things about me that I had no control over like my amazing big eyes and my quiet personality.
" you have big eyes!" thanks for telling me what I already know.
 " why aren't you outgoing like your cousin?'
How does one respond to such comments? Its not so much the comments that really affected me but the tone of voice. Its that kind of a tone that almost says something is definitely wrong with you.
I grew up thinking I was the most flawed human being on earth because I  just wasn't like half the girls in my class.
Questioning someone's nature is like questioning God and I know for a fact that God made no mistake when he made you and I. I believe that everyone was born to serve a purpose on this earth.
if only we could try seeing things for what they really are. Instead of looking at big lips why cant they just be lips. Why cant a fat or skinny or short or dark girl just be a girl?
I don't know if any of this is making sense, my mind is a little clouded right now but what I am simply saying is that DO NOT EVER LET ANYONE MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE DIFFERENT!!
Happy weekend.

Party dress blues

My friend Edina asked me to design a blue party dress for her. I was so ecstatic when she told me about it but experienced a bit of a problem defining ‘party dress’ and deciding what shade of blue to use. She skipped all these relevant details and just told me to design something she would wear. This of course put a lot of pressure on me, I take my designing very seriously thank you. As usual, I drew the first thing that came to my mind and surprisingly she loved all of them! I think they are unique dresses. Have I seen them around? Nope!

I love the first and second the most. which one would you wear?

" I am thankful to all those who said NO to me. It's because of them I did it myself"
~Albert Einstein~
I have promised myself that each time someone doesn't give me an opportunity or each time I am faced with disappointment, I will recite this quote over and over in my head until it sticks. Many of us are so quick to give up on our dreams when faced with difficulties, I have given up countless times, heck, I feel like giving up right now but something in me wont let me. There has to be a point where we just stop waiting and start doing.
Maybe sometimes we are not given the opportunities we are searching for because God wants us to find a way and make it on our own. I feel that no matter what situation you are in life, you have enough in you to get to the point you plan to reach.

♥ Happy weekend and make everyday your best ♥
