Life + Style Concept Message: “Self-Awareness”
Breast Cancer Awareness was the inspiration behind the ensemble in this concept #71. In Mid-October, I was scheduled to attend an event for Breast Cancer Awareness, and the challenge was to wear pink. As an owner of not one single pink item, I improvised–correlating the pink flower with my bright Salmon pants. Nevertheless, this correlates with something more–this concept correlates with my association with Breast Cancer. My aunt survived Breast Cancer; outside of the miraculous nature of her survival, AWARENESS played a significant in putting up a fight against it.
Merely a sophomore or junior in High School, my aunt’s fight taught me the importance of awareness. Throughout the entire process, she proved self-awareness is valuable in fighting against what’s fighting against you. For some, day in and day out negativity strives to steal, kill, and destroy our purpose and our destiny. Nevertheless, similar to my aunt’s battle, awareness of the specific forces charging against you is significant in charging against those forces.
Self-awareness isn’t the easiest of realities, nevertheless, it can be a reality. In moving forward in fighting against those things that are fighting against you, consider the following, in hopes of developing self-awareness and then applying it to your life:
- Escape the Grid: Life has a way of integrating us into a grid of robotism with the need for us to be busy, resulting in lives of mudanity and unawareness. Take some time to escape that grid and reflect on the who’s, the what’s, the where’s, the how’s, and why’s of life. Be aware of your life!
- Be Tactful: We can easily follow the lives of others so much that we fail to follow our own lives and the things that concerns the betterment of ourselves. Once we escape that grid, be tactful when you return to that grid; return to the grid with an awareness of the things that are good to you and the things that are bad to you–all assisting in fighting against what’s fighting against you.
- Be Committed: Negativity, procrastination, ailments, and all of the like, can pose a formidable threat against your life. But once you’re aware of those things and subsequently develop a tact against those things, be committed to fighting against them. It won’t be easy and you may not see success at first, but be committed to putting up a fight!
