#twss Inspiration

When I first started blogging, I was worried about what people thought about the content I was producing, my grammar, the reasons behind blogging, and so much more! I had read so many great blogs, and figured I could never look or sound as great as their lives "on paper". My first few years of blogging, I didn't really let anyone read them, it was kind of just a diary that I wrote...and if someone came across it and read then great! It wasn't until recently that I started not caring what people thought about my blog, and you know what? I really enjoy what I write's stuff that has meaning to me, and can help others in the world as well. I'm sure people (my sisters) still roll their eyes at my instagram name change, and some will get annoyed when I share my Facebook page or a blog post...but those are the people that need this quote. Loosen up my friends, let down your hair and forget what others have to say. 

I will leave you with this, if you have dreams that seem silly...pursue them! Those dreams are usually the ones that make you something you never thought you would ever become.

  1. Wish I could give you a fist bump! Good job! Keep doing what makes YOU happy! You are making a difference!

  2. You go girl!! I was the same way with my blog for a very long time. I kept it semi-private; nervous, scared, afraid to be judged. But it was so liberating when I started sharing and posting more regularly. I am so glad to have found you and your little corner of the internet. I love what you write and share. Keep it up Mama!

  3. I love this, Brittany! I was the same way, I mean most people on the internet know me as "Mrs. AOK", Mrs. AOK has shielded Dean for sometime, which helps when you hit publish. :)
    Speaking of hitting publish, I use to get SUPER anxious. I think probably for the same reasons as you. I still get semi nervous because you never know how people will receive your work.

    HOWEVER, there is great power in putting yourself out there, and not caring that others may think it's silly.
    BLOGGING IS COURAGEOUS and I don't know if us bloggers give ourselves a pat on the back for that enough.
    Keep blogging!

  4. I love that you are putting it all out there because you are being you!! Criticism be darned!

  5. I'm so glad you're blogging, no matter what others think :) Most folks who don't blog DON'T understand how amazing it is! I'm still very shy about my blogging & social media endeavors, btw...trying to work on that in 2015.

  6. I'm so glad I stumbled across this!! I just started my very first blog and have no experience with blogging. I'm feeling this exact same way!!
