When I joined the "IDGAF Tribe"
.
.
It was a long time ago when what people said really made me change the way I was. I was young and still not fully aware of who I was as a person and what my true worth was. I depended on men for validation when it came to my looks or my potential as an individual, and that continued even till my thirties. Coming from a small town and a middle class family, we had limited exposure to the outside world. I struggled a lot with my looks and the English language as a kid. That reflected in me as an adult as well. It took me years to realise that learning a language is a continuous process and I am still learning the English language till date. I am very comfortable now with how I look cos I stopped waiting for compliments and started ignoring people who called me ugly. I am kinder now for I have been treated unkindly by others. And also I learnt a very important lesson from mom to always dress up well and show up looking your best , it helps in boosting your own confidence. And I love this quote too much not to mention it while we are talking self worth... "Look your best, who said, love is blind? "~ Mae West

Shoes 👟 👟 👟 .
.
There is a newly constructed street
On the other side of this fear
.
There are sakura trees lining the arms of tomorrow
Showering random flowers of blessings on passers-by
And on the lonely fishmonger 
who awaits takers with his late evening catch
.
A new life awaits me at just 25 steps of belief
There is hope of a new love that will flush this broken heart
With hurt and happiness again
There is hope of rain that will soak me in all shades of red
.
I am pale and lifeless on this side of the street
I spent more than 365 days staring at the possiblity
Of a life way out of my league
With crampy calves, tired legs
And torn shoes
From all the pacing at these golden gates
But who needs shoes now anyway
To walk on a carpet of cherry blossoms
Who needs shoes
For a humble leap of faith
.
Ps:I have pretty naked feet.

"The bottom line is
The ones with vaginas
Need to have fierce respect
For the ones with vaginas" ~ Ms. Sunday
@thepenthousepoets .
This quote says it all for me. Women need to respect women if they want to have any chance of men respecting them. Feminism is not about hating men or burning bras for me. Its about learning to be kind to yourself and other women. It is about learning to support other women in every way we can. Its about equal opportunities and rights for men and women. So ladies lift each other up !! .
I was tagged by @wax_poetically via @scribblemenot for a selfie as a challenge to uplift other gorgeous women in the community. So here we are..tagging a few, open to all (women of course). You ladies rock!! Much love 😍❤

This is a spoken word I did a few months ago. This beautiful piece is by my dear friend Kris @poetica.ex.machina from her debut poetry collection Hello Beautiful (link in her bio). This is my favourite piece from her book. Go grab a copy, if you dont already have one. .

I never used to believe in this quote but I do now.. How perspectives change with time... Let me know your thoughts on this.. .

The last few months have been really difficult for me personally. More so emotionally than physically. We all have to go through these phases to emerge stronger, better. We would never know the importance of the light unless we had a few dark days. I am happier, stronger and definitely a better person than I was a few months ago. I am building a skyscraper in my head..and I know its not easy.. But I will build it nonetheless (if you know what I mean 😉) . To metaphors! Cheers Sak! .
