Today’s look was inspired as I started to reflect and visualize my goals for 2016. As women, we wear many different caps throughout the year, sometimes even per day. Each cap distinguishes our roles and requires something different from us. It is a reminder of how we impact and how we interact with others while wearing the many different caps. Each has its own set of expectations and obligations. Whether it’s being a teacher, mother, sister, daughter, wife, friend, girlfriend, house sitter, mentor, nurse, counselor, chef, or coach, each cap classifies a unique attribute we have to offer to others. Occasionally it can get very overwhelming, or sometimes we become ungrateful. Like many women, I have felt the edge on those two intakes. We become overwhelmed and start to think about eliminating caps, and seldom do we need to do that, or sometimes it’s because we overwork ourselves trying to fit into today’s society that ultimately leads us into exhaustion. Likewise, we become dissatisfied with our caps and start looking at ways to improve them by laboring ourselves to add a jewel here and there to add quality or pizzaz to them. It can simply start off as an innocent task, but at times we let those task shift from wearing those caps with the intentions to love others to loving ourselves. Let today’s Dad’s cap look be a reminder that no matter what cap you are wearing, wear it with confidence, poise, and with gratefulness.
FYI: I bought these Sperry’s at Dillard’s during that secret shoe sale for only $23.89!
Everyone meet Koby Rae, he is 3 years old and loves kisses. He was having too much fun during this photo shoot!
Thought I share this photo. As far as my 2016 goals go, this mural is a reflection of what my hard working parents, grandparents, and Aunt sisters dealt with and serves as a daily reminder of how far my family and I have gone. Goals are attainable, we just have to work for it. Murals is also the topic for this week and my students are enjoying it!
Wishing you many blessings in 2016!
She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
