Dream Big 43 (Special Edition) The Colors In All Of Us
In nature we see so many different colors, in several shapes, and forms. Animals species from reptiles, to birds are oftentimes the most vibrant we see in the wild, from the darkest shades of black to the brightest shades of pink, and possibly every shade in between. Trees also vary in in a multitude of colors, not only are their flowers seen in various hues, but even the leaves change in color with the seasons. Humans have not only adopted these variants in color we find in nature, but we also mimic there ever changing form. We not only change our hair color from natural colors, to unnatural colors, but our skin color as well, with the usage of tanning beds, spray tans, skin bleaching, or paint ourselves in an array of art tattooed into our skin. Since the dawn of mankind we have adapted to our surroundings, and no matter where we are from, we all have that special sense of style that makes us the unique individuals that we are. Every country, state, city, and town is a reflection of how modern styles are currently trending. Of course even the most popular trends come, and go over a span of time. We've seen changes in clothing styles, hairstyles, tattoos, piercings, and wear our personalities on the outside to reflect what's within us. But what do our personal styles really say about us? Each individual has his, or her own nitch, but how someone is dressed, or wears their hair, doesn't necessarily define who they are as a person. The old cliche is to never judge a book by its cover. The same goes for people, you can't base his, or her personality by their appearance. So many stereotypes fall into place causing us to be judgmental. If an individual has tattoos it doesn't mean they're a bad person, or should prevent them from having equal opportunities as someone else. There are several doctors, lawyers, scientists, teachers, police officers, fireman, and military personnel, to just name a few who have tattoos, piercings, and or an interesting sense of style that sets them apart from everyone else. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What we see on the outside isn't always what is on the inside. Let us except others for who they are, not what they appear to be. Let us remove judgement, and doubt from our minds. We are the only ones who are repressed by our own fears of inadequacy. If we accept that beauty is all around us, then we can accept the true beauty within, and see the colors for what they really are.
