I am trying to remember at what age I started feeling “sexy”. No one truly defined the meaning of sexy for me. I would hear the adults around me referring to the fact that someone was dressed too sexy or was not sexy enough, but they did not say what it meant. So in my own little mind, I thought sexy was a dress code. I even thought that it was bad. I would later learn that sexy is an attitude.
As I grew older, and I traveled to different countries, I met all types of people. They were all different. They were from different races. Some were size zero, others were size 20. Despite these differences, I would form incredible bonds with some and others I left behind. I came to understand that the reason I admired some people more than others, was due the fact that I fell in love with their attitude, their “swagg”.
My point is, many people feel that sexy has to do with a particular size or wearing revealing attire. That is not always the case. Sometimes that representation of sexy can be inappropriate. Sexy is not about how much you show, it’s about what you show.
We all have the ability to find our sexy. Don’t allow anyone to hold you back from finding that spark that allows you to leave your mark. Remember to smile every day and make life your runway. Give the world the opportunity to see what’s inside of you, not just what’s outside. Go get your sexy back!
