on being real...

I've been thinking a lot about being a better, truer me. Sometimes I really do feel like I have to fake it. Being what I think people want me to be, or toning myself down (or cranking it up) depending on who I'm with. And that makes for an unfulfilled life. I am endeavoring to be truer to myself. Pursuing the things that interest me, embracing my quirky senses, not making excuses for anything... because it's who I am and who I want to be. Take it or leave it, ya know.

And with these thoughts running through my head, I was totally enthralled with something I ran across on Design is Mine today...

It's chock-full of creative people living in their unique spaces... messy, artistic, and real. I love taking peeps into people's private spaces (um, that sounded creepy.) But, for real... it's cool. Check it out.

I heart this post! We all stuggle on when to let go and not hold back. I have the same issues, but sometimes I thing I am alittle too real for some people to handle, I make people feel awkward, lol. I love each and every one of your quirks! Its the quirks that make you one of a kind, and why I am your friend!

you are so right. i think we all have to dial it up or tone it down, depending on circumstances. i have to be nice and fake a lot at work to annoying clients. then they leave and i talk shit. hahahah. it is lame, but i need my paycheck! but i think i am real on my blog and with my friends, whether it goes over well or not. :)

p.s. i have to fake it a lot with family to. they would die if they heard my potty mouth, and we would have epic wars if they knew my thoughts on many MANY topics.
