Don’t be a hard rock when you really are a 💎.
Yes, you got it, the legendary Lauryn Hill, in her Doo Wop track.
It is so simple yet so profound.
Often we complicate things way too much. We forget ourselves in situations and in most cases, those same situations need us to apply our truest selves. We just settle and forget our worth.
We feel that we need to conform, more dominant amongst the ladies. We think we need to look, think, act in a certain way to be noticed, or wear, breathe, eat and drink specifics in order to fit in.
We become numb and cold to all the hate and negativity because that’s easier than just dealing.
… And then comes Lauryn with this powerful reminder.
My take on those lyrics is that we don’t NEED to DO anything, but be who we are. It is enough.
I say, wear that “pass-me-down” dress that your gran made so many moons ago for your Mum and so what if it’s paired with a pair of no names from pick n pay or Mr price?
Be open to critism to better yourself and for no other reason. Learn to accept and respect who you are, in your truest form so that others will learn to respect and accept you as you are.
Kings and queens, don’t forget your worth!
Love and light always, from just an ordinary girl
