Wearing Black

Most elegant women prefer wearing simple black dress for any occasion simply because they believe that black speaks louder than their voices. Black speaks of beauty, poise and even happiness for some people, the reason why some wear black outfits in occasions like wedding and Christmas. To me, black is not a color because I do not find any color in it. A color to me tells of one or two stories, but I do wear black form time to time. I choose color depending on where I have to go. I think of perfect color to wear for a simple gathering of friends, for interview, for going to church. But I do not impose this to people even to my loved ones. I truly believe that each one has his own preference when it comes to colors.

I have learned over the years that one has his own voice and he has the right to be heard. This is not to mean that one should be talking like a parrot- non-stop story telling or explaining of his own opinions. Whatever color one is wearing is enough for other people to know that this is what he wants without even explaining the reason. He has his own story about the color he is wearing but it is only for him and questioning him about that should be avoided. The person wearing that color should opt to keep quiet because once he opens his mouth and starts telling his own stories about that color, the magic begins to fade. The excitement seems to wear out and that color loses its true meaning to him.

The moment you stop explaining is the moment you gain your momentum and power. What you are wearing already speaks of your power but talking about it loses whatever magic you have in you. Others will only tell you or dictate to you the colors they like you to wear and this should not be the way because you are giving away your power. If there are times that you want to wear red even when the situation calls for a different color, by all means wear red because you have your own story and you are the author. No need to tell why you have to do so. Do not lose your power for you need this wherever you go. Do not let other people tell you to do things you do not want to do. Giving in to them will only tell one thing- that you can never make it on your own.

Remember to live the life you want and never allow anybody to tell you what to do. Even for the simplest thing like wearing your socks. You alone have the power to do so. Only in this situation will you learn that you have control of your life. Even in the case of loving the person you like, buying the house you want, and yes even in choosing the right color for you.

Have you ever been in a situation wherein the gift you expected was not delivered to you, instead you were given just a simple piece of paper. You wanted to tear it in front of the person who gave it to you but you opted to control your emotion. You gave him a big smile anyway for the effort exerted by this person who shared his time with you.

A few weeks ago you got a call from a friend, a rich one, that she was giving you a gift. You were excited and happy because your friend remembered that you were about to celebrate your birthday then. The date when the gift was supposed to be received came and you imagined a big box wrapped in red and gold paper. You were almost sure that it would be a very expensive gift knowing that your friend, being rich, had excellent taste when it came to material things to use. But you were disappointed because all that you received was a piece of paper, an ordinary paper. You were about to throw it away but chose to read it. You were instructed to get the book from a person who was very close to your rich friend and it was mentioned in the note that the book would surely, really bring you more than enough riches in your life.

Well, you decided to see this person who even told you that he could be a mentor but only after reading the book. When you reached your place and started to read the book, it got your attention right away. You finished reading it in such a short time, to your surprise. You immediately applied what the book instructed you to do and after a few months, you became somebody. From being an ordinary person to an almost famous one who served an inspiration to people you meet everyday. Yes, it brought you riches, more than enough that you have some for every person who needed it. You called your friend but she was gone...for good. The book was important to her and she even said that she would give that only to the person who could very well serve other people. That person was you.

Imagine this, had you received that gift you wanted, for sure, up to now you were still in the rat race, working your way very hard to the top. But God was so good to you that He chose you to work on a different but noble mission. Now, the next time you receive a simple gift, do not throw it away. It can be worth several million dollars later on.
