“Be still and cool in thine own mind and spirit.”
Is being cool still cool? I saw this editorial of Zoe Kravitz for the Edit June 2017 and instantly thought that her vibe was so cool. Although I guess I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone with a rock star as a dad!
I’m sure there’s still pressure to fit into a certain standard or to be fashionable, athletic, or funny. But I’m also reminded of the end of “Mean Girls” when the clique broke apart and the girls were happy to forge their own paths. While the pressure to be cool still exists, I love seeing that there are more movements and encouragement for people to be more unique. More and more, individuals are taught to embrace themselves and their interests, associations, and characters. While there will always be things, fashions and people that are considered cool, let’s hope for many definitions of cool!
Have a lovely week!
