Personal beliefs are personal and unique to each individual, family, group or generation. There are many people who believe in a higher power, something or someone up in the sky guiding or protecting them. Whatever it is that you believe in its highly likely that your belief filters into your everyday life. It could affect some of the most important life decisions you’ll make. Even everyday life is affected.
I have been raised in a Christian home and have had certain values instilled in me that I’ve chosen to carry through into my adult life. Both the teachings from my parents and church family I believe have mounded me into the person I am today. We all reach a point in our lives when we recognise the profound effect that our upbringing has had on us and decide on whether we would like to continue passing on what we have learnt onto the next generation or not.
I’ve thought about compartmentalisation and how it’s possible to completely desperate our beliefs from other areas of our life. I’ve come to find that in actual fact it is rather difficult to seperate the two. They intertwine over and over again, if we are to truly live walking in the truth of what we believe then we have no choice but to combine both the life we live and our beliefs to create a life that is truly fulfilling.
Whether you practice a faith or not when faced with any situation that’s seemingly impossible one may look to a higher being rather than hoping for ‘luck’ to be on their side. Which is natural, as humans we are limited in our capacity, in our strength, in our intelligence and in our foresight.
The question I then ask myself in the creation of this blog is what does my faith have to do with beauty? How does it relate to fashion, and what does it mean for me as a Christian to have a public platform in which to share these things. There are most definitely ways and I hope that I am able to execute these in all of my posts.
Have a lovely Good Friday!
