The gorgeous Tracey over at The Naughty Forty Diaries has shared her Power Word with us and what it means to her.
Head on over and follow Tracey, she will make you laugh and sometimes cry (she writes beautifully, especially about her mum), she sings on stories and is just generally my kind of lady!
‘I choose Unique – cause I am innit.
There’s only one me [ me dad would probably say thank god … come to think of it my brother, BF and friends would no doubt say the same!].
I really think we should embrace our uniqueness. I’ve always danced to the beat of my own drum because well… I like Blondie and you like Boyzone …?
When I was about 14 I decided that brown cords tucked into knee-high stripey socks with trainers was cool. It gets better!! One sock was brown and the other was blue. Mum & Dad were probably thinking what the bloody hell … but never discouraged me from wearing what I wanted. Now I probably looked a right idiot … I’m sat laughing just remembering … but at the time I thought I looked the dogs bollocks … and isn’t that what it’s all about? Expressing yourself , feeling your vibe – being the totally fabulous ‘unique’ person that you are… if that’s trousers tucked in stripey socks who is anybody to argue with that #beuniquenotasheep
I also went through a stage of wearing berets … but instead of looking chic … I looked more like Benny Hill! In fact some of the guys I hung around with during that phase still call me bloody Benny
The there was my tartan hot pants, red tights and winkle picker period. The list is endless!’
