Don’t Feel Stupid If….


I LOVE this quote! It really stuck with me, and I had to share it. Isn’t it true? In this world of “trying to be like everyone else,” we often pretend to like things we really don’t.

Here’s the deal. I don’t like A LOT of things that people love. Once I saw this quote, I made a list in my head, and I thought I would share it. It will force you to think. Do I really like these things I claim to like, or do I like them because it makes me seem… cool, hip, likable, smart, sexy, etc.?

I don’t like:

going on long hikes, I’ll sit in a lawn chair and wait for you to come back
touring anything that takes more than one hour
drinking in the day
packed pool clubs
massages by strangers
camping (maybe in a cabin)
Leonardo DiCaprio
concerts unless I can sit and put my feet up, even then I get bored
dating for fun, it’s not fun
(I’m actually going to keep adding to this list because it’s therapeutic!)

Make your list!

I Have A Confession

The year 2016 is here, and it still feels like yesterday when we were all worried about what was going to happen when it turned 2000. Remember Y2K? Since then, our technology has blown up! We have smart phones, tablets, laptops, iWatches, bluetooth, apps for everything, and the list goes on. We also have… the selfie.

The dreaded selfie. We don’t feel completely comfortable taking them, we complain that some people do it too much, yet we do it anyway, and let’s be honest, they can be really fun.

I am not one of those people who despises seeing selfies.  Here it is… I confess, I like them!

So, am I always comfortable taking one myself? No. Do I love seeing other people’s selfies? Yes!!!! Or should I say, Yaaaasss!

There’s something about a selfie that I find really fun and sweet. I feel like sometimes they are the window into people’s minds, moods, atmosphere, and more. I think they are cute. I like solo selfies, group selfies, couple selfies, celebrity selfies – all of them. Sometimes it takes courage to take the solo selfie. We critique, we filter, we take one, two, or 10. We laugh. We giggle. We study. We post.

Yes, I’ll say it again, I enjoy looking at people’s selfies.

So don’t be ashamed, don’t doubt, don’t feel like you are annoying, I say post away!! Selfies are in, selfies are here to stay. What’s next? I’m not sure. For now, I enjoy them.

Here are a few of my personal favorite selfies from the last year. #SELFIE

Can’t wait to see yours!
