Recently, a blogger mentioned that my blogs are much more serious than I am in person. I was taken a back by this comment for about 1 millisecond, but then realized, she was 100% right & was also happy that she picked up on that.
Yes, I’m generally a goofy, happy, silly, light-hearted person. But, we are multifaceted people. We are not two-dimensional; we aren’t even three-dimensional. There are so many complex layers in every human & we can’t be defined by one word or categorized into a tight little box. There are also so many experiences that affect us over a lifetime & mold who we are & how we deal with challenges & struggles.
Now that I think about it, something scary & stressful occurred when I just started this fashion blog. There was no choice, but to face this personal challenge & deal with while I began this new blogging adventure. Here I was taking this first step to try something that was solely for myself, when life said, “uh uh uh uh uh, no, no, no!” “Not so fast sparky! Here is some personal crap you have to deal with.” So, I tackled both at the same time.
There were only a handful of girlfriends who lived close by to chat about the tough stuff. Knowing it is unfair to unload so much emotionally on my hubby (a person can only handle so much), this outlet, that I once thought was solely a creative outlet focusing on fashion, took a different course. Without realizing, my blog ended up becoming the stage/platform for sharing those serious, intimate conversations that typically shared with your dear friends over coffee or drinks. I never intended for this blog to be a vehicle for sharing very personal stories I was dealing with & how I was affected.
Currently, my hubby & I are making serious changes that will hopefully have positive results for our future. We’re having tough conversations along with a ton of reflection & discovery during this journey. I also have big questions about my life, this blog, who I am on such a personal level & guess I didn’t even realize I was barfing all this “stuff” to you. I really hope you don’t mind because obviously this is something that needed to get out of my system. It is better to get this out, deal with it head on instead of keeping it bottled up & waiting for that much larger explosion that will most likely occur later on down the line. You know what that’s like when that happens.
Maybe, my next post will be “Why You Shouldn’t Keep Feelings Bottled up!”
We all fall into this trap, but I was ready to surrender & face the demons. And, you my audience, just happened to get the brunt of what is going on in my mind & the things that have been happening in my life. Maybe that is why my blog started on such a serious note as I have been dealing with some serious crap over the last year.
Ok, enough serious chatter, let’s be silly!
I had been compiling an outtakes folder of silly photos from our shoots. Recently, I dropped my G Drive, it quit working properly & I lost a ton of photos including those. So, I tried to dig up some silly photos to share. Hope you enjoy!
Would the Queen of England be proud of my march?!?!
Hi! Nice to meet you! Come here often?
Itchy nose! If you scratch, you ruin make-up.
No, I just didn’t squat & pee outside!
My best Broadway side-walk onto stage!
Look at me! One leg!
It’s in here somewhere!
Peek-a-boo! I see you!
I’m out! It’s cold!
Are you harboring some deep issues? Don’t you think it is time to lay it all out on the table, deal with it & then begin to feel better about everything? Then bust out your silliest photos & just leave it behind.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Friday to you!
