“At the end of the day it’s the basics… Sometimes people get worn by clothes instead of wearing clothes. “
I love those two lines. They speak to the reality that there is nothing new under the sun. Style may take many forms in the way you present yourself to the community but it’s the basics that will sustain beyond the image. Too often we look for a quick fix or try to borrow someone else’s success stepping into an event or element for all the wrong reasons. Instead of us using an event the event ends up using us. What are you doing that is classic, original, and natural to you, your community of youth you lead that will sustain you and serve as your basics? What are you doing that is wearing you out and just unquestioned adoption of someone else’s bag of tricks?
