I know, I know, it’s Saturday, but I love doing these posts. I’m also trying to get into the habit of posting twice a week and I’m trying to figure out what works. So pardon me as I experiment with the blog and find what works for me; once I get a consistent schedule down, I won’t be posting on random days anymore. I promise.
The cool thing about volunteering to do a company’s social media pages is that you get to find a bunch of cool stuff; the bad news is that sometimes you inevitably read stuff you don’t want to (cough, the trending topics bar on Twitter, cough) So this week, as I was scrolling through my personal feed for cool things to post like this infographic that listed 11 untranslatable words from other cultures, I also saw things that I didn’t want to see, like the whole debate about Renee Zellewegger’s face. Honestly? My emotions on this subject are below (incidentally, another lovely find):
There. Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, we can get on to the fun stuff.
I love, love, love, LOVE the point that Kiersten made in her recent post on beauty. One of the frustrating things about blogging is that there are times when other bloggers take the words right out of your mouth, and you think, “There goes another post idea” First her post on why she doesn’t want to have kids, and now this? The girl is after my heart. Because she’s right. Beauty is subjective. Just because people have complimented my Pocohontas-like hair all my life doesn’t mean that everyone will dig it. Some people might prefer blondes. Or redheads. You never know.
Liv Light has struck again. This girl ALWAYS delivers posts that are on-point. I am in awe. In times of pain, we can find it hard to be grateful for the experience. Alivia lists 5 revelations that have helped her appreciate the pain she went through. Talk about courage and vulnerability, right?
It’s always nice when people acknowledge you for your support, and last night I got a tweet that did just that. Remember how I mentioned that I loved Amy Clover from Strong Inside Out way back when? Well…drumroll please…
And before you ask if I was just sharing her content to get this tweet, the answer is a resounding NO. I share her content because I genuinely support what she’s doing.
And need I say more about why this video has been making waves?
Lastly, guess what WordPress sent me on Thursday?
I can’t believe it’s been a YEAR! Thank you so much to all of YOU amazing followers who have kept up with my blog! YOU are why I do what I do. So thank you!
