Stripes and Polka Dot LOVER , Reporting to Duty!

Clothes make me happy and sometimes clothes even make me sad. However, when they fit perfectly I feel great! But when there is either stripes, polka dots or both I feel beautiful and my outfit is complete.

I want to take a minute and examine the difference between striped and polka dots. I believe that stripes are more organized, and structured. They have a specific pattern that they follow and rarely do they very. If they do vary there is an organized pattern. Stripes are often recognized as sophisticated, and preppy.

Stripes represent the structured part of my mind, the left side of my brain. This part of my mind feeds off of understand what is expected, and knowing the direction I will take. Stripes put my mind at ease in knowing that I can always count on them to be exactly how I imagined.

Polka dots are different than stripes. Polka dots are random, never properly organized and often chaotic. You may have different size polka dots, colors and even placement. Polka dots are often recognized as fun, childish and playful.

Polka dots represent the creative, and fun part of my brain. Also, recognized as the right side of my brain. Polka dots bring a smile to my face. I do enjoy when they are one color or monochromatic, but gold polka dots make my heart smile.

When I put stripes and polka dots together, I feel like I am soothing both sides of my brain. I believe they make me complete.

Now, that I have rambled on about stripes and polka dots I would like for you to figure out what eases your mind and makes you happy. Sometimes we look for the most dynamic things to make us happy, but we forget that the simple things can give us the same feeling.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day and you find what makes you completely happy!!

With Love,

Observer, Reporting to Duty.

From the first day that we take our first breath, until the day we take our last we all observe others. Observing other teaches us our manners, how to speak, and walk, and how we should act in public and how we treat others. Observing creates who we are as a person.

Some people observe subconsciously and some observe consciously. I would consider myself a conscious observer. I enjoy watching others and seeing how they will respond to different situations. If I had to create a list of my favorite activities I would say, sitting on a bench in the mall watching people.

Watching others has helped me create a conscious understanding of how humans treat each other and their reactions. Many people are rude to others, but are never able to recognize their behaviors. Some are rude and instantly feel the remorse. This works the same with kindness, empathy and embrace.

The behavior I always encourage others to use is to be self-aware. Understand who you are as a person swimming through this thing we call life. The more self-aware each of us become the more we are able to understand what we should and should not do. We will begin to understand; just because it is socially accepted does not mean that it is RIGHT.

As we end our Saturday evening I would love for each of you to observe who you are in your own life. Take mental notes and become more conscious. This small task will eventually become a life lesson.

With Love,
