Me, You, We are all Legends.

I hope you've all greeted Rayban a very happy 75th birthday!!! As part of their celebration, as I've mentioned in THIS post, they recently launched a campaign titled Rayban LEGENDS. I, along with 10 other bloggers, was chosen to be part of this project and we were asked to channel a legendary person we look up to. It was actually a no-brainer for me. Heh. I'm not sure if you've already seen Vern as Audrey Hepburn , Sarah as The Blues Brothers and Lissa as Madonna, but the girls looked amazing if not legendary! As for me, I've chosen one of my favorite style inspirations as my "icon", the forever fabulous TWIGGY!:) 

Thrifted dress, Jhajing collar, Bedazzle bangle, Gift from Mich's mom shoes, RAYBAN sunglasses!

I'm not sure if you all know her, but TWIGGY is known to be one of the world's first supermodels and a fashion icon. She started modelling when she was 16. People thought she wouldn't make it, nobody believed her except maybe for her parents, but 50+ years later she's still the icon that she was back in the 60s. With her androgynous & unique look plus her quirky fashion sense, she has shown the world that being different can take you places.

Still at the peak of her career, she quit modelling stating, "You can't be a clothes hanger your entire life!". She decided to risk it, dropped her lucrative career and tried out acting and singing. With just her confidence and winning smile, she thrived and came out of it all as a winner. Fast forward to now, she's still in the forefront of fashion. I'm sure you've seen her shine as a judge on America's Next Top Model! She also launched her newest album November of last year. :) Her fabulousness just never stops and transcends the decades. The best part? She uses her influence by encouraging people to take part in animal welfare protection and breast cancer research.

The sixties were a time when ordinary people could do extraordinary things...!

As for me, like Twiggy, I never felt the need to change myself or pretend to be something or someone I'm not, or adapt to what's "standard" or "normal" to achieve happiness or success. From day one, in blogging or styling or growing up, I've been ME. Like her, I've risked enough to finally know what will make me happy, what will make me grow and what makes me a better person. When it comes to my career, I pretty much know where I stand and I know what I want. In summary, I let go of my stable and high paying job to pursue my passions, and I've never been happier in my life.

The hardest question in this challenge is this: How can you be a legend? I don't know if I'd ever be one or if I am already one. Guess I'd only know when I leave this world. Hehe. What I do know is that one need not be a Twiggy or an Obama or a Ninoy Aquino to be a legend. A legend is someone who live to inspire others, someone who leaves an impression so deep not even death could bury his/her tales. Someone who has touched hearts or souls, someone who changed other people's lives for the better.

I don't know if I'd ever reach such stature, but I would continuously strive to be one. I believe I'm treading the right path as I try to excel in my chosen fields and be the best version of me. By working on my dreams within reason, without stepping on other people and by lifting others up. I am not perfect and I make errors along the way, but I consider each one of them a building block to my foundation. I acknowledge the fact that this life is temporary, borrowed, and at the end of it all I will be questioned how I spent the gifts He gave me. So everyday I tell myself, "How can I change the world today?".

I spent years questioning my purpose in life and now I finally know. I use my blog as an avenue to inspire other people through my stories--career, love, travels, life-- and to use whatever influence I have to get this message across-- LIFE IS NOT ALL ABOUT ME OR YOU. The biggest legends are those who didn't live only for themselves, but for the betterment of others. Each one of us, in our own little way, has the power to change the world. We just have to believe enough and act on it. You don't even need money to do it, sometimes time and effort is enough.

But to become a legend one must first be free. How could one conquer the world if she/he can't conquer herself/himself? When you've discovered and make peace with yourself, that's when you start living by faith, that's when you find happiness, that's when you could finally open and offer yourself to the world. :) Just like Rayban's famous tagline, NEVER HIDE. Each one of us has a hidden shining star! :)

Have you found your inner legend? I would love to hear your inspiring stories:)
