I am really behind in blogging and I miss it dearly. So over the next few days I hope to spam you all with lotsa new fashion posts. Todays is about the Pacific Crisis Fundraiser. The skin is from Glam Affair, currently available at the fundraiser as well as the gorgeous necklace from Donna Flora. I went a few nights ago and picked up quite a few items. It’s wonderful to see so many content creators coming together for a great cause.
I heard there was some drama about it and I don’t know all the details, nor do I care to, but I did want to share this story from a very important book that my father used to read to me when I was a little girl. Please excuse my poor translation and if I forget or mixup any information.
Long time ago there lived a scholar named Luqman. Luqman wanted to teach his children a very important lesson in life. So one day he asked his son to come travel with him on a journey.
On this journey Luqman brought a donkey along and requested his son to ride the donkey. So his son rode the donkey as Luqman followed on foot beside them. After a little while they came across a group of people who stared at them distastefully and said,
“What a disrespectful son! He makes his father walk on foot as he rides the donkey so comfortably.”
Upon hearing this, Luqman and his son switched positions and Luqman started to ride on the donkey while his son followed on foot beside him. After a little while they came across another group of people who stared at them distastefully as well and said,
“What a horrible father! He makes his son walk on foot while he rides the donkey so comfortably.”
Upon hearing this Luqman asked his son to join him on top of the donkey. So they continued their journey with both of them riding on the donkey together. After a little while they came across another group of people who stared at them distastefully as well and said,
“What cruel people to put so much weight on such a little animal in this scorching heat. How can the poor donkey carry such a burden?”
Upon hearing this Luqman and his son both dismounted and continued their journey on foot beside the donkey. After a little while they came across another group of people who stared at them and pointed and laughed while repeating,
“What foolish men to walk on foot in this heat. Why aren’t they using their donkey?”
At this point Luqman turned to his son and said,
“Now do you see son what the people have said. No matter what you do or how you do it, people will always find a way to criticize you.”
So the moral of the story and my reason for sharing is, don’t try to please everyone, because that is impossible. Do what you feel is right in your heart. I’m not only sharing this story for content creators, but for bloggers and anyone else that can gain from it. I too have been questioned a lot recently about why I only blog certain designers and why I only promote people that I am friends with. It upset me a bit when I heard that, but I realized that I can’t make every single person happy. So I just do what I feel is right and what makes me happy.
Alright, so that’s the story I wanted to share. Kinda weird talking about donkeys and such in a fashion post, but it’s my blog and I’ll talk about donkeys if I want to! :P
Happy shopping everyone! <3
