Another Muse

I don't know what it is about this ad, but I'm in love with it...


Is it the grunge-chic look?

The range of colors?

Her fabulous eye makeup?

I just don't know what specifically is so striking about this one...

The ad reminds me of Melody Ross, somewhat...the way she dresses:


It has me thinking about my artistic side...and, well...who I have been trying to be versus who I am...

How do you suppose we lose touch with ourselves? How do we start trying to be somebody else...and not our true and authentic self?

I'm very in touch with that idea right now...with trying to be what somebody else expects of me and not my authentic self, not the self God created me to be.

Its a ponderous concept...

Somehow I'm far more artistic and classic than I'm allowing myself to be...I've got a love of big jewelry and simple clothing, of fun shoes and black shirts and bright lipstick. Where is that woman who wore huge cocktail rings before it was "fashionable" to do so, who didn't care if you thought her boots were weird or ugly or appropriate for the mall?

She simply MUST be found...I'm interested in being the reflection that God created me to be...not the buttoned down, corporate girl who always does the "right" thing...

So...searching away...

And this ad just speaks to that part of me that is searching...

I do know this:

That RING she's wearing...


Its so MINE!!!

Have a BLESSED DAY, everyone!

I am still seeking my authentic self... I'm not sure I have ever met her in person yet. *sigh*
