Not only is my attire Asian inspired, and the fact that my baby daddy is Asian haha. But seriously, my sons grandparents changed my perspective on a lot of things I viewed as conflict, that were actually stepping stones to life lessons. My Vietnamese connection dropped some serious knowledge on me, reflecting on that period of my life. That experience really set up the framework that shapes my view of family life and healthy relationships today. A lot of things I’ve learned about Asian culture through having my son has been a real blessing. So, you know when Angela Bassett started meditating in What’s Love Got To Do With It? Her whole life became clear, hell she finally whipped Ike’s ass haha, but most importantly she found that inner peace. Well call me Tina Turner because the power of meditation is real!!!
When I started researching meditation techniques, it ended up being an impromptu education on Buddhism. Some of the things I’d experienced mixed with newfound knowledge I acquired provided some serious cultural enlightenment. I’m still a work in process but meditating has been so critical to me clearing my mind. My IDGAF is so real, I kinda view things in life like taking off a bra at the end of the day. Oh the relief, but that one day you wake up like fuck this, I’m never wearing a bra again!!! That freedom is priceless lol. That’s probably a terrible analogy, but let those boobies bounce around!!! Many things in life are like a bra haha, yet some people feel they have to wear them, why? Mediation has really helped me approach life my way, to control my energy, and has allowed me to freely express myself.
I swear I’m turning into some kind of hippie or something. But I love how this new outlook/perspective is helping me prioritize my life. It actually causes me to be much more aware and driven to succeed in my endeavors. With that being said I know I’ve stated I’m going in a million different directions on the site. But after carefully determining what it is I really want to do, there are new things coming to the site…like FOR REAL this time haha.
Starting in May I’ll be adding new video content to the site aka my YouTube. Now, I know this generation is all about this more is more mentality. But I really believe in letting things digest and creating things that are meaningful take time and attention. Quite frankly, I don’t care to do things for the sake of doing them. Although I believe in being consistent (nowadays, new me remember lol). But I promise I’m working very hard on new content and I can’t wait for it to hit the blog.
Moving on, if I could walk around all day in underwear I’d be winning at life. Because that’s not appropriate for things in my life such as taking my son to school or going to work. Walking around in a robe is the next best thing. I found this robe at a local Vintage shop and fell in love, paired it with some Loubs and a vintage clutch. Added winged eyeliner for effect and there you have it. As always, thanks Ksenia for the beautiful photos.
