What we learned from the Himeji castle
Posted on 08 April 2016
Remaining as pure as milk as a person requires righteousness, sincerity, honor, and honesty. The toughest part is to persist on guarding these values over time. The Himeji Castle in Japan is over 800 years old and resisted the hardship of time. It’s still shining white as ever before, and so can you. Stay true to yourself.
Wear me on days you feel like in need of strength, I’m there to direct you to your truest self.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s important for you, to stay close to who you really are. You are the only one who truly knows you the best, only you know the boundaries you have set, only you know what makes you happy, only you know what you are feeling right now, only you know your favourite coffee taste at Starbucks, only you know your real opinion about that guy and only you know what doesn’t suit you. There can be a lot of pressure from the outside world to make you into someone you are not. And I know it’s difficult to stay yourself in a society that is constantly developing. But don’t give in! When you love to dress in your own unique modest style just do it, even if isn’t mainstream. How do you feel about people who dare to be different?
Nowadays we are surrounded by fashion which promotes showing more skin and promotes women as objects instead of beautiful strong persons. We, the Nesci team, have the deepest respect for women who stay true to themselves. We think we should learn from those people who are confident enough to show who they are in a modest way and who show respect to themselves in the way they dress.
You can either conform to what world wants you to be or you can have the courage to remain true to yourself every second of the day.
