Queen of Your Own Life

Ditch Regret and Be Flashy

If she'd known then what she knew now, she'd have worn the dangling earrings her friends all said were just a little flashy. - Queenisms™

If she’d known then what she knew now, she’d have worn the dangling earrings her friends all said were just a little flashy. – Queenisms™

When we found this wonderful photo at an antique shop, we fell in love with this unknown woman. We image her looking back at her proper picture and thinking “I wanted to blend in so much, I was almost invisible.” Now the truth is we have no idea what she was thinking. This is how we write our Queenisms every day. We look at the women in our photos and we wonder what they’re thinking, what lessons they’d impart to us or what they might wish for. And we think this lovely lady was long to burst out, show her personality and shine. Most likely we’re channeling our own inner needs here. So for today, we’re donning dangling earrings that are way to flashy for women of a certain age. And we’re giggling while we do so. How about you? What will you do to shake it up and dare to be flashy? Please don’t try to fit in so much that you become invisible. The flashy bits make us so much more interesting.

    Yes this rings deeply true: how many times I didn’t Rise Up to the truth that I Am a Unique expression of All. Now I rise (Maya Angelo) shine and fully express, dangling earrings, bright showy scarf and my joy!

    Since I wear girls size shoes, I’ve had problems finding grown-up looking ones sometimes. I just bought a pair of black tennis shoes with multi-colored sparkles and purple laces! I love them and don’t care that others might think they are too childish for a 52-year-old woman. They really sparkle in the sunshine. I have always tried to blend in and be invisible. Thanks for posting this!
