This past weekend was interesting.
I think I broke a mold in people's mind.
You see, I've been single for...well, as long as most people have known me. Yeah, I'm that girl. You've never seen me with a boyfriend, you're pretty sure that I'm into guys, but you've just never seen me date. And somehow, without even trying, I've been put in that asexual/neuter compartment in your mind.
But last weekend changed a lot of perceptions, including my own.
I had the pleasure of meeting two very high profile, ridiculously handsome men. And I took advantage of the situation and wanted to capture the moment. Our faces together, in one concentrated frame.
I had no idea what would ensue afterwards.
The imagery of my face next to a man's face in this particular context was almost shocking to some people, while also bringing unexpected delight.
It was merely practice, ya'll.
It's funny, in my last post, I talked to you about my paper "vision board"--Well, I've also been a big fan of Pinterest, because it's basically like a digital vision board. Posting and collecting those things that inspire you, remind you, and challenge you.
Well, I have a "Board" on Pinterest titled "Favorite Man S.W.A.G." - And both of these men that I had the pleasure of sharing a brief moment with, happen to be featured on my "Favorite Man S.W.A.G." board.
So I'd like to encourage us all.
To have vision.
Speak the vision.
And write the vision down.
It's practice and it's also preparation.
Write it out in big block letters so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It’s on its way. It will come right on time.'"
