Diary of a Real Life
I've made it a point to be as open and honest as I can on my blog. In a world where social media reigns supreme, I feel like it's so important to continue living a "real" life and portray that on my blog and various social media sites. I allow myself to be vulnerable, imperfect and even just plain "normal" because I'm human. We all are. Sometimes I feel like people mistake that for insecurity when nothing can be further from the truth. I get comments reassuring me that I'm fine, that it's okay, etc, etc. Don't get me wrong, I love every single one of my blogger friends and each and every comment is so sweet and thoughtful and I couldn't be more grateful. I guess I just don't want what I say to come across different from what I mean.
In my quest to live my normal life via the internet I want to make it clear that I have lots of self confidence, am more than okay with myself, my life and my image and don't need to be reassured that what I do or say is okay. I know that and I want you guys to know it too. I don't want people to see my blog and mistake it for a girl who is worried about what she is doing or what others think. Instead, I want all my blogging friends to know that I don't live in a fantasy world and I'm okay with that. I'm still 100% grateful and you should be too, whether you're keeping up with the Jones' or simply trying to keep it together.
I've had people in my day to day life comment on my blog to also reassure me that what I'm doing or saying is okay. If I've ever written a post coming across as needing this reassurance I apologize profusely. I simply share my life, my real life, with you guys because you are my friends. I know you'll be inspired, be amused, or simply come to catch up with me. Basically, what I'm trying to say is, friends, it's okay that my life is messy, I embrace it. I'm happy with it. If you come to my page, I hope you are happy with it too. Love you all, and happy Thursday! XO
