Fashion Friday: BE Shirt
*This post is sponsored and contains affiliate links*
Be. Be what? For me, I try to be brave. When I was picking my shirt from Cents of Style to feature for this post, I had the option to chose from lots of ‘be’ sayings: be kind, be bold, be happy, be still, be strong, be the good… And of course be brave.
To be blunt, my life hasn’t turned out the way I had planned it too back in high school. 18-year-old me saw 24-year-old me married, at least one kid, and a fabulous journalism job. But in reality? 24-year-old me is single, a cat for a child, and still living at home. My mental illness got in my way – got in the way of my dreams.
So what does this have to do with being brave? So much. I tell myself everyday to be brave enough to follow my new dream. My new dream is to be married with a kid by 30, working full-time as a blogger. But only if I can be brave enough to follow this dream will I even get close to fulfilling it.
There is also a quite ridiculous reason for why I wanted the “be brave” shirt. I am a giant Doctor Who fan. The last companion to the Doctor was Clara Oswald. In one of her final episodes, she dies by a thing in the shape of a raven that even the Doctor can’t stop. As she stands there, awaiting her fate, she says “let me be brave.” I don’t really know why, but that line just gets to me. I actually plan on it being my next tattoo.
