STYLE is defined as a prevailing mode of expression, individually expressed actions, speech, dress, taste, art and living. The list goes on. Everyone has their own style for everything they do.
My decorating style is contemporary/transitional. I’ll mix Grandma’s preacher bar with my new sofa I ordered at market. My fashion style speaks to the trends of today while I strive to accentuate my assets (some of which I’m still looking for). My boys say they like my cooking style until I make meatloaf. Why don’t they try to make unique, interesting meals seven days a week that pleases all pallets! My style of personality is to typically fix it. I want people around me to improve, be balanced and seek to be their best. My style of parenting is structured. I believe children need, crave and will demonstrate fairness if given the chance. My hair style is boring. I’ll wear it long as long as I can. The day I cut my ponytail is the day I start aging.
We all have our unique style in everything we do. You never know when you are being watched. Someone is copying your style right now. You just don’t know it. We shouldn’t be afraid to embrace our distinctive features, artistic expression or performance. If someone says they disagree with YOUR style, welcome the criticism because you are being you! Unless you are harming someone or breaking the law, you can’t be faulted for showing your true colors. Cyndi Lauper couldn’t have it all wrong:
And I’ll see your true colors
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
