Introduction to me...just keepin it real!

March 18~Wednesday

This is my no nonsense, need to let it all out. Cause we are all people here trying to keep it real.

I have a family blog-it is very sweet, chipper, and upbeat.

I feel that that might be a misrepresentation of my true self.

I am not usually sweet, chipper or upbeat. I find flaws in most everything, complain way to much. The older I get I realize friends are important, and blogging is such a beautiful community , that I want to play!

Here is a place where I express my true self. My thoughts and feeling and probably many opinions. I have many opinons my filter is flawed and I seem to say more than I should, however, its my life to live as I see fit.
Many might tell you not to ask me a question you do not want an answer to. I am not afraid to give you the answer and it might not be what you wanted to hear.

I want to invite you on my journey. Comment to me tell me your feelings-are you being the self that you want to be??


  1. Thanks for stopping by! I'm excited to have you join in!

    Honestly, I have been that person that speaks the truth, even when it's not what people want to hear. I've hurt people's feelings over it. Sometimes I do feel that I have to be honest, even if it means that. I just really try to use disretion. If I really feel that someone wants my honest opinion, I give it. I try to be gentle. And then there are times I have been blunt.

    I can honestly say that blogging has helped me to become a better person. I am more confident in being true to myself, saying what I truly think & feel, and not being afraid to share that.

  2. What a great idea to separate the blogs. I have a separate one I started a couple days ago for weightloss stuff, food journal etc. But I have chosen to keep it private (at least for now) - I think it is the shame of how far I have let myself go. It is nice to meet you through Amber's blog.

  3. Hi Lynn! It's so nice to meet you! I am stopping by via Amber's. I am excited to get to know you through this group. I think it's going to be so nice to have a great support system as we work on getting healthier!

    Have a great day!


  4. Hi Lynn!

    I'm joining the support group too. I have a separate blog and it doesn't show up in my list of blogs so I'm confident that my family will not read it. You will have to go to Amber's Link up to find it.

    Anyway, since you are being so honest....I will too. I am not being the self I want to be. Part of it is my fault....I am not as healthy/fit/thin as I would like to be but part of it is that I hold back parts of myself because my husband doesn't approve. There are things that I would like to do and places I would like to go but I have responsibilities to my children and family.

    Looking forward to being on this journey with you!

  5. I think I try to be true to myself but much of my true to life sarcasm get's lost in my blog posts. I think I am the self I want to be, but I have caught myself almost censoring my blogs and then deciding not too. On that note though I do not post everything on my blog...
