Being you..

Your Style, Your Perception Pt. 1

“To express one’s truest self, we must first be one’s truest self”


  Painting our fingernails, Painting our toenails, clipping them short – making them long – keeping them neat, or not bothering at all.  Painting our eyelids & painting our faces. Inking our bodies, just on the surface – inking our bodies deeply with colors. Peircing new holes and making them shiney- covering up holes or trying to make them look tiny. Shaving our bodies- even underneath our clothes- gluing additional hair onto some places, and taking vitamins in hopes that more grows. Adding brighter colors, or just making it look lighter – adding darker colors, for the sake of “going dark”. Cutting it short – growing it long – Leaving it down, Putting it up. Removing skin we didn’t want there – Adding on skin because it’s not there. Wearing a watch, a bracelet rings, or an anklet- rings on your fingers & your face – studs and hoops in every space – Wearing no jewelry at all, Your own fashion statement. Lining our eyes, heavily with the darkest possible color – Using a light brown, lightly lining the lids. Mascara-covered eyes that really catch your attention – Long natural lashes enclosing big beautiful colored eyes that look like they are from a different dimension. Long thin and plucked eye brows with a natural-looking arch – dark eyebrows drawn on like a line, sharp like a shark. No eyebrows, room for creativity, draw your style right on your face.

It’s how we speak. It’s what we see. How we see ourselves, how we want to see ourselves. How do we see others, and do we all really see the same? Not as far as how great our vision is, but what we actually visbily see when looking at something, someone. We perceive things we see the same. No? No, actually we don’t. We do not all look at something/ someone and see the same exact thing as one another.…. Do we???

If we all saw , I meant looked at things and saw the same exact thing, disregarding the shaprness of the image, but just the image itself. Whatever is in front of our eyes, does it look the way it looks to me, to you?

 I took my nail polish off of all 20 nails for the first time in…. like, what feels like ever, a few weeks ago. I’m just now realizing that is partly why I am not feeling quite myself as of late. I wear Black. Black nails. Black eyelashes. Black liner. I am inked, both on the surface and deep in my skin. I am pierced, in many places and I like wearing hoops. I wear a watch and whenever I forget it at home, I feel naked. I wear rings on my fingers and sometimes on one toe, I have a favorite anklet that I love for show. I wear bracelets and Blush and I carry a large purse on 1 arm… not over my shoulders or across my chest, but you will never catch me out of the house in a dress. I don’t know why but when I look in the mirror I just don’t like to see myself in a dress, it doesn’t look right to me, but would it to you?

 Do we perceive things the same? How is what is directly in front of our eyes the exact same thing, looking exactly the same in both of our eyes, yet our perception can be so different?

   How does one of us see sunshine and the other see the clouds?

 How come if I say the glass is half full, you say it’s half empty? I mean, that is fine- but why is it at all?

 How can one of us look in the mirror and see beauty while the other sees ugly? Why?

  I’m not saying, either way, is wrong- I’m just questioning.

  Knowledge. That’s something we need to spread like butter. Spread it on me please ;]
