I won’t even lie, there are days when I honestly wonder why I keep up this blog.
Then I remember that my mom reads my blog and loves me (thanks mom).
Lately, I’ve been slacking on my lifestyle blogging. I’ve been pretending to be somebody that I’m not and I want to apologize for it. A lot has taken place in the last few weeks in so many different aspects of my life; personally, professionally, and even blog related that has caused me to shut down and fall into a mundane routine of lackluster posts.
That’s not who I am and definitely who I do NOT want to be.
“Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you. What’s important to me is not others’ opinions of me, but what’s important to me is my opinion of myself.” -c. joybell c.
This quote resonates so deep with everything that has been going on in my life. Everything. While I joke with David that one day this blog is going to make me famous, that’s not what I seriously believe. This blog is my outlet to be who I am. If somebody stumbles across it and can relate – AWESOME; if not, I am sure they can find another little corner of the internet that will suit them just right.
I’m unpredictable and all over the place. I don’t seek fame or fortune. Sometimes I enjoy being a homebody. Dallas is my heart and soul, it’s the city that defines my very roots. You won’t get much fashion advice from me, but I do enjoy shopping for clothes. Sweats and sports bras are my name brand. I love a good party. Rivalry runs deep in the Ware household, especially when it comes to football. Deep down, I like to believe that I’m a crafting maven. Cuddle time with my puppies makes me feel like somebody needs me and I’m thankful its not an actual human being. Let’s not forget to mention we’re homeowners now.
Along these last few months, I’ve turned into a person that I don’t really appreciate. A person who has been trying too hard to impress the wrong people. Ware is the Vodka is my testament to the sassy, jean-wearing, no bullshit, boot wearing, big afro diva that I am.
It’s about time I remember that…
