Spring Time In The City

Toronto Fashion BloggerToronto Fashion Blog Venuseudora

Hello everyone,

The month of May has brought all the sunshine to Toronto – and I’m loving it! This month was a workforce hustle, and a time for self-reflection.  This brings me to the topic of this post. Have you ever caught yourself fitting into a mold? One of your own creation? I did.

For a long time, I created a outlook (aka, a mold) of myself.  A representative idea of the type of person I needed to be in the world.  You can simply call this an identity. But, I was being unfair. If you go about life fitting into a mold and always identifying with the rules of that mold, you’re not allowing yourself to discover new territories of your personality.  At one point, I was so attached to this self-made mold,  I would get defensive if someone claimed that I stepped out of it. My mold was to act classy, be self-reliant, act tough, keep a distance, and be analytical.  This identity was mostly shaped by my upbringing and by other factors. But that’s when I realized… I’ve CHANGED. I’ve LEARNED. I’ve EXPERIENCED.  Bottom-line, RULES DO NOT APPLY. 

Life is progressive and it takes more than a day to adapt to new outlooks.  With this post, I hope that you can recognize your mold, and can take that first step into breaking your own rules. Detach from any preconceived ideas of yourself, without doing so, you may be missing out.
