Bruh, I don’t know if it’s kids these days. We were all stupid and dumb. We just didn’t have a smartphone or social media to capture, share, and make things go viral.

My Daily Creative Dose

My Daily Creative Dose

A lot of people ask how I do it…
how I put outfits and fashion together.

I don’t really have an answer. Though I know that it comes from a deeper place than mere vanity and a desire to say, “Look at me.”

There’s a deeply rooted nerve in my body that tingles that bursts for creating. I need to express that creativity in one small dose or another. Sometimes it’s just by singing aloud, writing in my journal, people watching, or taking a walk of reflections.

Some people fulfill this desire by sketching.
Some by painting.
Others by writing poetry.
But since I can’t do any of those things, fashion is another means of channeling some of that creative energy.

I see fashion in lines, colors, shapes, outlines, silhouettes. I see moods, personalities, and tones. And just like the artist who can pick up their brush to paint whatever stroke comes, I pick layer by layer what will all come together.

Fashion is my form of art and just how anyone likes to be complimented on the piece they created, I appreciate it when someone can say they like an outfit.

So if anyone needs a shopping buddy, you KNOW I’m down to create some magic 🙂

Jesus is my Homeboy.

Today’s sermon at church was such a spiritual awakening for me.
I took the time to pray just now for quite a bit of time, with my Hillsong Pandora and I feel like my life is taking a better direction already.

With senior year worries and anxieties in tow, that haul of garbage and baggage feels lighter, knowing that all my afflictions are so petty in comparison to His power and what He can do for me.

For a long time, I feel like I just had God has a buffer.  Whenever my life turned sour, I would call to Him asking for help through my struggles, but when things were getting better, I thought of Him but my daily praying time was quickly replaced by other activities.  I let Him control certain aspects of  my life (like praying about forgiveness or mercy) but not others (like my school life and to-be work life).  He needs to be my mentor, friend, and authority through all those things and not when it’s convenient for me.

And that’s when I realize, the reason I’ve been feeling so disconnected from God lately is because of my selfish and unrequited relationship with Him.  All this time, I was frustrated at why I didn’t feel like He was answering me and it’s my own fault that I never really took the time to listen.

I feel like He has once again taken the reigns of my life.  And I feel wholly renewed and empowered.  God never fails to amaze me. And He never fails me. Period.
