We are who we are because of our mothers, not because of our garb. I say this because our clothing, religious or otherwise, although adding to our beauty, may fast delude us into forgetting our humanity and where we come from. Never forget who you are underneath the garb and strive for excellence in the real you. This is far more fruitful that imagining you are someone else, which often developes due to social pressures and striving to please the people, all the while forgetting our primary objective, which is to please our Lord. So remembering who we are and why we are, which is often rooted within the little lessons taught to us by our first teacher and spiritual guide, our mothers, brings about a stark reminder that we are who we are not because of garb but because of our mothers.
