Wishcasting Thursday?

Yesterday, Jamie over at Jamie Ridler Studios asked the question...What aspect of your personality do you wish to express more of?

I know it's Thursday, but we're on the verge of a full moon tomorrow, so I figure I've got plenty of wishing time left in this week. I wish to express more of my quirky, whimsical side! It definitely comes out in my art and I feel it in my heart, but very often I censor that side of me, especially when it comes to my appearance and sometimes regretfully, when it comes to my creative ideas.

You see I'm the type of person who wants to jump around in black and white knee socks wearing a ruffly, chiffon, swirly skirt! I like chunky, clunky Dr. Martens and the cutest flip-flops you've ever seen. I like girly spring dresses and leather jackets with heavy-metal studs. I have a very creative fashion sense, but somewhere along the way I began to hold back. Somewhere along the way I began to ask what would be acceptable. Somewhere along the way, I started to ask what will THEY think?  Was it when I got married?  Was it when I became a mom?  Was it when I turned 40? When did I begin to choose my appearance based on fitting in rather than standing out? 

I'll have to think on that, but not too long, because I don't care. I'm over that, and I want to express more of my quirky, creative side that has been wanting to get out and dance on the beach in a lime-green tutu! (hot pink or orange would do nicely as well!)

Get ready world, you haven't seen anything yet!

Lovebeams All Around!
Go Out and Be Kind...

  3. I agree you should just be yourself and enjoy standing out. I think it sounds like fun. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.
