I attempted to keep this as light hearted as possible and I started rambling a bit, but you get the idea.
“My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.” -Anais Nin
You wanted me to dance, I’d show you my best moves (aka The Tootsie Roll).
You wanted me to sing, I’d be Brandy, Monica, or TLC (Don’t gooooo chassssing waterfalls….).
You wanted me to act, here comes a full episode of All That – I was the female version of Pierre Escargot.
My imagination was active and fueled with a passion to just be myself.
What inspires my blog posts are the random moments in life when you get this little nugget of inspiration like….
“Why doesn’t the rest of the world appreciate the sheer awesomeness and fun that is Sevi?” –Francesca
That would be the Francesca from The SITS Girls: Where Women Get Social.
My blog is fueled by the sheer fact that IDGAF. Life is too short to sit around and let other people define you, so I make it my prime goal in life to define myself. I’m not going to stand behind the red tape, I’m going to run straight through that ish and let you know the party has arrived. I’ve got no fear in just relishing in the fact that life is meant to be lived. You have to enjoy every day and make the most of it. I just decided to add a little perk to it by sharing my life with the masses.
A huge inspiration for my blog is my handy dandy BFF, my lady boy, the creme de la creme – Indio LaRue. He’s really the reason why this all started – along with lots of beer and a burger.
My creativity with this hobby has blossomed into a place where I’ve become fearless with sharing my creative side. The openness and joy I get from sharing an awesome craft is the reason why I started this blog and it quickly evolved from that. My life has so many moving pieces that there was no way my blog posts could just stay focused on Indigo LaRue.
Inspiration is a spark that is in everything for me. Its never the most obvious thing that stands out. I’m inspired by text messages from my best friends, reality TV, dancing in my car randomly in traffic to look over and see the stranger staring at me funny, when WareBear tells me I am a little ridiculous, reading what’s going on in all the other bloggers’ lives, and so much more. There are days when I’m inspired by a simple quote I may come across.
When it comes to blogging, its more than just people reading about my life. It’s my outlet to the world. The place where no matter who reads it, I allow myself to just be the person I want to be.
Blogging is my sanctuary to make a fool of myself, laugh at the debauchery ensued in my daily life, and just remember that every day is worth it.
There are days when I’m not the funniest. There are days when nobody will visit. There are days when I’m like why the hell did I ever think writing about that was a good idea. So on those days when you get randomness of what I had for breakfast or what WareBear thinks of my latest fabric shopping spree – it’s because I am just being me. Nobody else. What you see is what you get –
After 421 posts on The Lifestyles of Sevi, I missed it. There was a void that needed to be filled again. You make friends. You share parts of your life you never think you would share. You start to realize how much of you really is invested in this blogging world. So now I’m back and enjoying every moment.
So in a nut shell, IDGAF about what people think because Enimem said it best… you only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow! This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo!
And these were my ramblings on what inspires my blog post!
