I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me as I watched the Basketball All Star games a couple of weekends back. Spanning the crowd there were at least a dozen basketball stars with the same black framed eye glasses, the same gaudy princess 15 carat cut earrings, heck even best buds D.Wade & baby 'Bron 'Bron were dressed exactly alike, top to bottom. Whats wrong with that picture.
True, we've all at some point dressed like a friend or even shared clothes at one point but that was limited exchanges at most . But in today's times across arenas, sectors and cultures its hard to tell one person from the next because the majority of the people follow the same trends. Men women and even children are attempting to replicate what is on television and runways. Mainstream is powerful isn't it? Is mainstream the leader in what we select to adorn on our bodies; are they setting your standard of what is "hot" and what is "not"?
Doesn't there comes a time in every persons life when he/she must take control of their own identity. Why would you want to see your look, style and appeal at every angle. Why should there be any other being on this earth with your originality and uniqueness , is that fair to you?
Why does everyone want to look the same way or dress the same, so many are making that daily trek to keep up with the Joneses? Who does that! What types of ideas go into a individuals thought process when committing to imitating another ways and styles. Be different. Who can be a better you than you? Be your unique, individual, exclusive, particular self. You are good enough, cute enough, handsome enough, classy enough, quite debonair and oh so fabulous just the way you are.
