I never get tired of the pastel color palette. I admit not trying them often enough, though. I love pastels for all seasons and the way they complement every skin tone that I could think of.
A few years ago if you asked me if I would wear an oversized pink coat and pair it with a pink handbag, I would have said: “in my dreams!” But most of the time it was I myself who stops me from living the “dream”. I remember asking myself various different insignificant questions like “Would I look too girly?” or “Would stand out from the crowd?” or “Am I tall enough?” etc.
I took me years of practice to say C’est la vie! So what if everyone thinks I am too girly? or what if I stand out from the crowd? Quite frankly few years down the lane, I am making an effort to stand out from the crowd and I couldn’t care less about all the possible what ifs and what the world might think. I stand tall and hold my ground. It is a part of growth. The growth in myself I have worked very hard over the years, but definitely not without help.
I wanted to say thank you to everyone in my life who contributed to my growth over time, however in today’s post, a very special thank you to my Daddy on his birthday! Thank you for loving me so unconditionally and being by my side through life’s ups and downs and teaching me to be the strong woman that I am today. Words could never explain the wisdom I have learned from you and despite thousands of miles of distance between us, I always feel that you are right here with me, all the time, guiding me through life. I couldn’t have asked more from life!
I love you the most, my Daddy!
