This came up yesterday, and has inspired a [silly] post…
The idea that I would let someone don’t know in real life, some stranger on the internet make me feel bad about myself through their posting about their own awesomeness… that horrifies me. Oh I get feeling jealous of an awesome house or someone who is succeeding where you are failing – that’s natural I think. But to go so far as to let it get me down? Oh noooooo.
I am in charge of my own happiness. I am responsible for my actions. I am the one who can choose to feel bad or good about myself. If there’s something about me I really don’t like it’s MY job to fix, accept, or improve. That’s not on anyone but ME.
I guess you could say I’m big on personal responsibility. and that’s all I have to say about that.
This subject led [quite naturally] to some humorous comments about the awesomeness of my never-ending laundry mountain and the fabulous studio of mine where being clean is a family JOKE. So today, I’m taking you behind the scenes of my fantastically SO NOT perfect life….
This is my “what she wore” totally glam self portrait. Do you love it? [excuse me while I fall down laughing]
– I have paint, mist, and ink all over my fingers. I almost always do.
– I have no memory of putting my hair up – but I always end up doing so
– My stained, ratty, cheap Army sweatshirt remains my #1 wardrobe staple in colder weather
– bare feet and gym pants = the rest of this haute couture ensemble
This photo makes me CRINGE. my desk was AWFUL yesterday. I wanted to clean it first… but this is about keeping it real y’all so you see the unedited HORROR of my own making. Can you handle more?!
I don’t know why I have freezer bags on the desk. I’m SURE I had a reason… right? The funniest part about my studio is that the rest of my house (scary laundry pile I’m NEVER without excluded) is clean. Yeah. I do dishes a few times a day, keep things pretty tidy and clutter-free. It is habit… I guess I just need to bring those habits into the studio door? [yeah yeah, I say that ALL the time]
Bottom line? I have the same 24hrs as everyone else, and sometimes my choices in what to do with them are more productive than others. I have never assumed that the owner of any blog I read has a perfect life – we’ve all got our issues and our own mess (whether literal, emotional, etc) and issues. Just know when you read my blog – I keep it real.I’m a big believer in focusing on the good, the happy, the light in my life because doing so = feeling better and having a better outlook. Oh I might not tell you every detail or bad thing – but that’s because most of that is private, and not the point of my blog.
Today I get to face the reality of being the wife of a fireman and an ever-changing schedule. I get to go to my annual lady parts doctor appointment… with Rebecca. Now don’t be getting too jealous about that one! but do make sure and keep up with your health and regular check-ups!!! If THAT isn’t the ultimate in glamour and fabulousness I just don’t know what is.
Challenge: share in the comments here something that truly IS fantastic about you. I’d love to hear it…
