Realness


Okay, so I have been blogging for about three years now and even though I haven't kept up with it weekly (or monthly haha) I have to admit that I truly love it. I feel like I have finally found the love I had back in 2013 for writing.

I have to admit it's been a while since I have felt this connected to myself. I feel the fire to write again and even though I know my writing isn't perfect and my grammar may be off, that doesn't really matter does it? This is my space on the internet and I'm going to start using it again, talking about MY opinions, MY days, MY life and I'm excited.

I've been reading a book called "F*ck it, the ultimate spiritual way" by John C. Parkin and I'm really enjoying it. I've begun to say Fuck it to so many things and its making me feel better. Especially when it comes to this blog. There are SO many blogs out there and they are all so damn PERFECT. It's intimidating and exhausting because my blog will never be PERFECT like theirs. First off, I don't have the patience to constantly stage photos and photoshop. Seriously though, kudos to you if you enjoy photoshop because I find it the hardest program to work with and no part of me is going to google how to do it. Why do we need to set a standard of perfection? So many young girls see all these things posted online and can so easily get carried away with it and believe that it's a reality. I find it so saddening but to be honest I'm not going to sit here and say that I never fell for it because I totally have.

When it comes to "mommy bloggers" they're my biggest indulgence. Seriously, I follow so many mommy bloggers and it used to blow my mind how beautiful their lives were. I mean everything was always perfectly clean, super white, super hip and "with it". I remember thinking to myself, how do they have three kids and have a home that is SO DAMN CLEAN. I live with another adult human and we find ourselves occasionally getting super messy, if we were to add in a baby to the mix I honestly doubt that I would be able to keep up. But I guess that is something for future Kat to worry about, right? Anyways, once I discovered GOMI it was pretty eye opening because I used to be a hardcore fangirl and the ladies on those forums opened my eyes. These bloggers lives are NOT perfect, they get a SHIT TON of things for free and their job is to literally make their lives look perfect and staged and all rainbows and butterflies. It ain't happening here because I seriously have no patience for it.

I run a business and have two jobs, I don't have the time to make my life look perfect for you. My life is messy, all over the place and real. So, if you're new here or have been around for a while I just want to say Welcome.

Welcome to realness. Welcome to The Dainty Kat.
