Platform boots through the looking glass

I got the cutest platform boots from urban outfitters and I might have nowhere to wear them or a night out planned but they are just too gorgeous not to share.

As someone who loves poetry, music and generally just as a creative person, I get lost deep in thought sometimes.

It separates me from reality. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing but I like allowing my imagination to take over. What was the Salvador Dali Quote again?

I’ve been thinking a lot about self-love and acceptance, as usual. I thought I’d do an Alice in wonderland type of theme today. A look into self-reflection and healing.

When Alice crosses through the looking glass she descends into a different reality where everything is a reflection and the opposite of what it should be. For example, running makes you stop and trying to leave something only brings you back to it.

I thought this was a good point. It’s one thing to run away from ourselves, which I think so many of us try to do. Whether it’s through addiction, plastic surgery or even staying busy all the time. It’s all a technique we use to avoid the inevitable. No matter how much we run we will always come back to ourselves.

Self-healing and truly accepting ourselves involves facing who we are. I can imagine, if you’re anything like me, over the past year during lockdown I’ve had no choice but to face myself.

I have passed through the looking glass into a world where I can no longer run from who I am. Am I perfect? No, but that’s okay…

Maybe we should live in a world where we accept ourselves and it might make life a little easier? Perfection is an illusion. Be smart and take a moment to cross through the looking glass with me…

In a world where perfectionism is a reality we are all out of place. Take a stand and be yourself.

Soph.
