Changing It Up…

Forgive me if this sounds a little cliché but I’m not sure how else to approach this subject so I’ll just jump straight in. A wise woman once said, ‘change is a powerful thing, people are powerful beings’. These words have been stirring in my head a lot lately as we find ourselves balancing on the cusp of an important moment of change. It seems like movements and moods have been brewing for a while now and something needs to shift in order for us to be able to move forward. So as we stand by licking our finger to turn the page and welcome in a new chapter hopefully of calmness and tolerance, it feels like unless we take action the only change we are really going to get is Autumn. So why is it that we change our hair, attire, and phones with ease but when it comes to the bigger picture we can’t let a finger except to update our facebook status. I’m not saying I’m innocent but I am bored of the dormancy. I want change, I need change and in all forms as for me right now everything feels the same or archaic, all that really seems to change are my clothes from one statement shirt to another. So while we can’t change the seasons (not that I want to, I personally can’t wait for Autumn) we can change our environment, our attitude and our impact. We are powerful beings and we can bring about what we want just like that wise lady said. Oh and by the way, that wise woman was Lana Del Rey.

      It might have been my favourite print of summer!

    Yes ! I have to totally agree with you ( and LDR!) !! I feel the same way about so many different issues, topics and simply ways of approaching life. We must consciously seek ways to change in order to grow and then substantial change in the world can happen. Yes , I’m sad to see Summer end but ready for fall! Really love this look, Luke ! Amazing print, color and fit!!

    Having just seen LDR in Liverpool (yeah, I was there for business so it wasn’t voluntary) and referring to that specific song gives me the chills. I loved her concert and that song in particular speaks to me ever so much as do your words, Luke! Let’s change, for the better!
