Be Yourself and Blog Yourself

Hello Everyone!  I took a little break to be a friend, a girlfriend, and to be myself.  So what does this mean?  I spent sometime with my favorite ladies, my boyfriend and myself!

Being a Friend: On Saturday I joined my girlfriends for the play Lunatic(a)s!  It was a great time!  Thanks to Idalia for bringing us all together and feeding us!  She really outdid herself with all the yummy food.  Thanks, thanks, thanks!

Being a Girlfriend:  My lovely BF started a new gig at Betty's Blue Star Lounge this weekend and while I usually don't like to go out clubbing much I couldn't not go.  I am so glad I went because it was again a great time with my friends and his family (brothers).

Being Myself:  I took some time to think about where I want this blog to go.  At first, it was hard to even get started.  I kept on thinking, "who wants to read my babbling?"  I fell in love with blogs earlier this year.  My first encounter with a blog was Make Under My Life.  Jess, the writer, has a purpose and therefore her posts have a purpose...but me...I don't even know what I want to do tomorrow.  Also, all the blogs I ran accross were smart or witty or creative OR all three!  So how can my random thoughts be ok to put out there?  The I found My Favorite and My Best!  This blog was completely different.  Take a look, please take a look.  She is honest, she is funny, and more importantly she is herself.  I was thrilled!  She made this blog herself...she writes about decor, about her family, about twilight!  She is funny, she is raw, she is honest and I am in love!  Why?  Because she made it ok for me to be myself.  While her blog might not be for everyone (which is ok) it certantly is for me.

So I started blogging...and then this happen.  Here I am thinking that I am not "worthy" of internet space and Jess is asking Actually, who are you not to be?  Wow.

And then My Favorite and My Best posted this.  She got a blogging gig!  Can you imagine being you and then someone likes you enough to pay you to be yourself?!!!  Awesome.

My fave from My Favorite and My Best:
"So from my perspective as long as you write it all from your heart and use your voice and not a voice you think people want to hear and try not to bore the piss out of people you will get a job with a hot gay dude!"

Funny how when you allow start seeing more signs and things start falling into place. After this blogging epiphany... Jessica Claire posted this...also about being her true self on her blog!

Fave from Jessica Claire on being honest and on the critique/comments that this might bring:
I have the power to delete you at my will and I will exercise that right to the fullest extent possible. It is the only exercise I might do that day, so I appreciate it . :)

So here I go.  Pretty Blessed - Honest Thoughts and Wild Dreams

P.S. Oh yea!  And cheers to daily randomness!

  1. Do it Eva! I think that is why blogging is challenging for me...I'm a people pleaser and if I write I want it to be me, not the pleaser, unless that is me at the moment. Does that make any sense?! lol
