Be YOU, Everyone Else Is Taken.

We all do it. Compare ourselves to others. Others who "seem" to be more gifted, more talented, more successful, more beautiful, etc.etc.etc. It's kind of exhausting isn't it? Not to mention discouraging.
I go in waves of feeling good enough and then getting completely discouraged. Then I remind myself that life in the real world and life in the blogging world isn't all about keeping up with so and so. WE don't all have the same resources, the same style, the same income, the same opportunities. That's just life and that's A OK...You want to be unique. Now thats a talent and thats a gift.

I find that I am the most motivated in blog land when I just forget about what everyone else is doing, forget about the numbers, and really get back to why I blog. I blog because I love it. I blog because I love my family and keeping them updated. I blog because writing is a passion. I blog because fashion is a passion. I blog because I have met some seriously wonderful people through it. I blog because dang it, it just really makes me happy. My blog is just that…MY blog. My experiences, my style, my ramblings, my heart. I just want to keep it that way. Whether it happens to be on trend or not…I just want it to be mine.


I hope that you don't get caught up in these keeping up and comparison type things. But I figure if it gets to me sometimes, then I can't be the only one.

Just try to remember that being YOU is really the most beautiful thing you can be. Plus, I really love you for it.



  1. This is so true. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. You are cute! This is true, we all do it but this is a good reminder to take a step back, take a breather, and be content with who you are!

  6. It's hard when you see all these amazing edited photos, read all these great things people are doing, and seeing how creative people can be... that's why I like to take a break from social media here and there. To gather myself and to remind myself I am me and I am different with different resources, like you said. I like to step back and remember why I started to blog, for myself and family because it's something I enjoy! Loved reading this, just want I needed! Thanks

  7. Definitely not the only one. Just when I think I am getting really good at being content with who I am and what my blog is, temptation seems to set in. It's an on-going battle. But awareness is the first step, right? Great post.
