I am not a big fan of the color pink.
Too girly, too sweet, too feminine.
This color makes me think of fanatic girls jumping up and down over a hot guy.
Giggling, donning the latest fashion and flashy girly stuffs.
It reminds me of someone like Paris Hilton.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate them.
I’m just not like them. So, I can’t relate. LOL!
Now this just reminded me of High School.
My high school isn’t the greatest you would ever hear of.
I was perceived as the shy, introvert or sometimes the odd one.
All because I can’t relate.
All because I am not into this “who’s your crush?” thing.
Because I’m not the richest, not the smartest, not the prettiest and so on.
But oh, they do remember my existence in art classes.
I wanted to feel like I ‘belong’ badly.
To be with the like-minded people.
It didn’t make sense.
But hey, I have great friends back then so it’s not that bad.
I enjoyed my HS life with my few but great and supportive friends.
I gotta thank them for that! 😀
But now, it all looks clear.
I am not meant to force myself to belong to a crowd I don’t fit in.
I guess we all become better as we grow older if we choose to be.
That’s how I embraced the idea of growing old with grace.
I realized that with age you will understand more things you previously don’t know.
If I would be asked if I like to go back to my previous self,
I won’t go.
The ‘me’ now is more flexibe,
The ‘me’ now understands the value of being true to myself,
I have committed myself to embrace the years of wisdom to come
The next years that will come to my life.
I won’t fear the aging process.
Although I am only at my mid 20’s,
who knows what the next years would bring?
Perhaps I might consider wearing something pink by then?
Okay…that’s just a piece of me today.
I just gotta say you are naturally wonderful and aging won’t take that away.
Let age enhance your real beauty inside.
A rose do wilt but the memories it bring may last forever.
Have a great great day! 😀
