On the outfit: This is probably the most athletic glam as I can get. When asked to do athletic wear for nights out, don't expect me to be in gym sports bra or jogging pants...I reserve those exclusively for the training room. When doing an athletic themed look, I would much rather GO FOR THE GOLD, which I did... in this ensemble.
On When is being "nice" considered being fake?: As individuals, we have all been trained and raised to be nice. We do "nice" things for people, we say "nice" things, and we are nice. Most of us, I am sure, fear that if we stop being nice, we have to become nasty. Having become bored with our niceness, many of us end up experimenting with nasty.
For those of us trying to get clearer with ourselves and others, we will discover or have discovered that our niceness is ultimately linked intimately with our dishonesty. If we want to be more honest, we have to be willing to let go of our "niceness". In letting go of our niceness, we find ourselves becoming more honest, not just to ourselves but to others as well. Getting honest about ourselves and our lives is an essential step toward self-actualization. To be more honest, we have to give up being all prim, proper and fake and put ourselves out there. Often, what we fail to realize, is that when we say we are being nice to protect other people, the person we are really protecting is ourselves.
As for me, I've am way past that point. I decided to be honest and drop the whole nice girl act and be true, at a very young age. For one, I am relieved and I am able to lift a major weight off my shoulder- the pretense and the niceties. I have come to realize that at the end of the day, I don't want to be remembered as being "nice" but rather being "REAL."
