Self is the theme for NaBloPoMo March 2014. This month I get to learn more about myself as an individual and as a blogger. It’s going to be easy to write about myself considering I shared aspects of my love life last month.
I’m excited and hope that you’ll enjoy reading these posts. As always, feel free to like, share, and/or subscribe!
Social media has some folks sharing way too much. Moments that are best kept private are broadcasted to millions of users.
Oversharing can easily lead to a virtual Pandora’s Box. A few friends can swell to millions within minutes. Generally speaking, people like to provide commentary whether it’s warranted or not. Social media is no different.
So how upset can you really be when millions of people start providing commentary on what you post?
If you refrain from putting your diary out there for millions to see, millions wouldn’t have anything to comment on.
Simple as that.
Folks feel some kind of way when their tea (aka personal business) becomes storytime (aka tea time) for the kids.
If you feel that your tea is being spilled amongst the masses, you shouldn’t be putting the water into the pot.
My bestie LVC said it best. “If you yourself enjoy a nice high tea every now and then, you should be prepared to be a special on the menu once in a while.”
Pinkies up. Tea is served.
When you put your personal life out there for everyone within 50 feet to hear, how can you be mad when folks start repeating your business?
Fall is almost here! Of course, Summer will always be my favorite, but Fall is when I do the majority of my personal upgrades. The weather change seems to motivate me. Besides, the summer heat this year was like a daily field trip to Hell. All I wanted to do was exist…in the soothing coolness of air conditioning.
Here are a few things I’m trying to upgrade during the cooler months:
Changing my clothing style
I’ve lost a bit of weight and a LOT of inches (go me, go me!). While I’m in love with my slimmer self, I’m in utter despair over my clothing. Like I hate just about 80% of what’s in my dresser and closet. If it isn’t too big, it fits me like a tent, or I feel like I “aged out” of it. Not cute at all. I need to do some experimentation. Introduce some sexy to my wardrobe. Invest in slimmer pants/jeans, feminine blouses, bright colors, and heels. Yes, heels. Writing that took my break away.
Majority of my weight loss is attributed to diet. Soda is a distant memory. Fast food and I are no longer in a hot love affair and I want it to stay that way. Currently, working out consists of 15-30 minute yoga sessions. My back thanks me, but I need to move more. Slowly, I’m integrating cardio into the mix. Cold weather is a great time to start walking.
I have a lot of recipes on Pinterest that I want to try out. My crock pot is going to be doing a lot of work *insert evil laugh here*.
My apartment is so plain. I want so much more. I want my personality to be reflected. How can I translate random, inappropriate, and sexy into decor. Lots of work to do.
Have you been inspired to do some personal upgrades lately? I wanna know!
