being myself

i appreciate this post found over at bits and bobbins. it is good to be reminded once in a while to be true to who you are. i've always struggled with this ever since i was young. we have to be honest, as human beings we are always influenced by what's happening around us. it is just now that i'm older, more matured that i am finally finding my own self. i'm starting to learn not to care what other people think, or even knowing that other people are not even really paying that much attention. i'm learning to just dress up how i want, with what i'm comfortable in and with what i think looks good on me. i still falter many times, of course but i think what's important is that i try.

i joined the wardrobe_remix group on flickr. i intend to start contributing to this group soon. i admire all these men and women who put themselves out there. i tend to be on the shy side so this'll be a big step. as you may have noticed, i don't really like to show my face on my blog so this is also sort of a little "coming out". at the same time, i think it's a good way to display my recent thrift store purchases. i've made several trips in the last few months and have found a few good things, some of them for mere pennies. i'm addicted!
