Moving to Jericho wasn’t exactly one of my greatest hits as I still trying to sort things out. And whilst being on this never ending new self-discovery journey, I have hit a few low moments and this week wasn’t the best one. It is absolutely a culture shock for me…funny you say? Well, I know that I am Arabic and all and my roots are forever Middle Eastern but I was raised in Canada and it’s totes not the same mind set. Don’t get me wrong, I mean this is a wonderful place but I feel like is so not as fast paced as I would like it to be. I mean I know I just have to sit down with myself and figure out exactly what it is I truly want. It was always clear to me in Montreal…being a business owner was my calling and even though it still is….I just need to re-work my grounds and figure out how to being. Fashion has always been my true home. The colors, the texture, the beautiful and endless lines and structures and just everything about it keeps me alive inside. I know that this is where I need to be…fixing garments, curating vintage and styling outfits..now that is my calling! There are still a few gapped spaces that I need to fill out as it comes to fashion here in Palestine. Some things are not as “fashionable” as I “thought” they were. I mean, I will never follow rules, ever! Because that’s just who I am…but it turns out apparently that if you go to a public and social outing, you’re not to repeat the outfit you wore there any where else….because people already saw you in it. I am one who recycle outfits quite a lot…especially if I truly love the pieces I have. And I love pretty much everything I own. Oh and apparently, vintage isn’t a thing either…..who knew?!
Anyway…I know I am super ramble-y but I just needed to vent out a bit and writing does help me set things into perspective and help me see the bigger picture. I always had a diary that I wore in religiously…up until my sister found it and put her nose in it…le boo! As I was stuck in a big funk, I wasn’t super inspired to dress up in anyway or blog either. Today, I woke up and found my strength again. I find the human mind so fascinating and even though the will and power does come from us, sometimes I can’t help but feel so hopeless and helpless. So today, instead of sitting here and whining and feeling sorry for myself…I decided to get dressed so casually and go out for a little chill time with the sissy in law and her kids. She’s always so positive and I love her for keeping me that way too.
Along with my little chit chatty ramble…I wanted to share with you my little outfit..as it was super perfect for a hot hot 40 degree summer day…without further ado, here it is:
WHAT I WORE:
SHIRT: Thrifted ◊ SKIRT: Stradivarius ◊ SUNNIES: Aldo ◊ SHOES: Charles & Keith
This skirt is super light and airy and feels so comfy on a hot day and shoes too!! I mean did you see the the holes in the shoes. Look how happy I look;
All in all I would say this was a pretty chill and relaxing day. A happy one and hopefully this is the start to a new high where I find myself again and enjoy life’s precious moments.
So my dear internet friends, if you are in a funk or hitting rock bottom, fear not as you are not lone. We all have those moments and take your time to feel every feeling that come through you…but the most important thing that you must keep in mind is to keep going and to keep fighting for yourself and for your dreams. It is not about the fame or the money to the final destination, it is about those little moments and those little challenges you pick up along the way of your journey. Savor them and enjoy them as they are but faint memories that only you can remember.
