I ain't lookin like no slapper

I just had to share this interview because it was doubly refreshing to hear true wisdom and common sense coming from such a young and undeniably talented lady.  Generally speaking, I found her comments to be authentic, encouraging and inspiring.  I am sharing this in the hope that something she says is beneficial to you too.  Personally speaking (as a singer who also has no desire to crawl across a stage buck-naked or pseudo-buck-naked), I am grateful for her courage and boldness because (whether she realizes it or not) she is pioneering.   

"Exploiting yourself sexually is not a good look." <----- THAT is my favorite thing she said.  

Usually, it's Adele's vocals that dominate conversation about the British singer. But the 23-year-old's physique became Topic A when Karl Lagerfeld told Metro newspaper: "She is a little too fat." The comment sparked outrage and an apology from Lagerfeld.  "With high-profile critics like this, how does Adele herself feel about her figure? When Anderson Cooper recently interviewed the star for a "60 Minutes" profile, Adele said she rarely thinks about her body image and feels no pressure to be a "skinny-mini" or wear revealing, hyper-sexual clothing.  "Even if I did have, you know, a 'Sports Illustrated' body, I'd still wear elegant clothes," she said. "I ain't lookin' like no 'slapper' (slang for a promiscuous woman)."   -excerpt from CBS NEWS  

THIS: I ain't looking like no slapper...
has become my favourite* phrase.  
Don't you be looking like no slappa' either! OK?

XOXO Sharita

*for Adele and Brits everywhere ;D


Since love is all about perspective, be willing to change your view from time to time.  
Find beauty in what appears mundane at first glance.  
See the sacred in the seemingly ordinary.  
Open your eyes to the good life.  
Your good life.  
Your life that is FULL of blessings, promise and hope.   

Forced Perspective

"Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, "You owe me."  Look what happens with a love like that.  It lights the whole sky."  -Hafez, 14th century poet

Change your perspective...
Happy Valentine's Day!  

You are loved.
