Smart.

“You look very smart today”

It’s a simple phrase.
It’s easily understood.
It’s a nice compliment.
It’s such a common thing to hear come from the mouth of a Kenyan.
It’s sweet to the ears.
It’s a little different to the ears, but I like it.

Smart.

I love it for so many reasons.
I love that it’s different.
I love that it’s unexpected.
I love where it makes my mind wander.

I love that dressing well is associated with being intelligent.
Looking well and taking pride in your appearance usually stems from having self-worth.
And where there is self-worth and intelligence there is usually also empowerment.
And is there anything more beautiful than finding empowered people not just in Africa but..anywhere?

Intelligence is beauty.
Self-worth is beautiful.
And there is nothing more beautiful.

Be smart.
Be empowered.
And never forget it.
(And once you feel it, share it with others)
