It wasn’t just her clothes, it wasn’t her wonderfully healthy and glowing skin and hair, and it wasn’t her healthy figure (notice I didn’t say skinny). It wasn’t even her confident poise. Although all those were actually present.
It was her voice – no, not her singing, but the content and substance of her words.
She is well known but not world-wide famous – not yet anyway. And while I’ve seen more famous folks exude these nice external qualities, the words that helped me define my former college mate, as she shared on social media, her most recent opportunity to sing at the presidential inauguration was “class”.
Filled with wisdom, honor and grace, she spoke of and to our people and leaders with hope and blessings.
She rose above the constant noise and competition and drew people up to where she knew they could go.
That-my friend, is style and beauty. And it’s my favorite presentation of identity.
Tribe, during this holiday season, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to shop, give and show up.
Fashionable clothes, jewelry, fitness gadgets, unique beauty, health and skin care items will abound along with gatherings, entertainment and festivities. I’m all over it; and please do enjoy them as you can!
And as you show up in your hopefully Shea Butter pampered skin and hair, wearing your favorite items, hopefully also including items from my collections; ? remember your legacy as you present your style, which truly represents you.
Put on joy, radiate hope and let your words intentionally offer grace, hope and confidence to those you connect with – whether they “deserve” it or not.
Don’t wait to feel it. Create it!
Leave them with something that’ll last them for years to come.
You are that significant. You are that stylish. Your contribution matters.
By the way, you can help get the word out and celebrate your inspiration, new finds, workouts or commitment to a healthier lifestyle on my website with the hashtag #tribalMarks #bydami #passionbarre #thinkagain on Facebook, Instagram, and all your social networks.
Thankful for you,
Know this –
You have “it”! You’ve still got it to dream bigger and live bigger. Let’s breathe illumination, strength and encouragement into you.
Keep your hope up. Be ready. Be valiant. Be brave – It’s an incredible journey.
