I know it is really hard to find time to write at this point in the day, but I am still so grateful for all the amazing things that people have been sharing.
If you are reading this, I am most grateful.
I have seen a lot of things today, and I am thankful to see that so many people are saying the same things. It is all so inspiring, and I am so proud of the people who have been sharing their experiences as part of the public diary. It is a wonderful thing to see the sharing of real life.
I love that so many people are sharing their experiences, and are doing so in a public diary. We are so lucky to be a part of this amazing community. If you are reading this, I am truly thankful.
One of the reasons I love blogging so much is that it is so public and real. It’s easy for people to say “oh, I’m just checking in on my friend’s blog,” or “I’m just following this person on Twitter,” or “I’m just checking in on this person on Facebook.” There is no reason to be secretive, because it is public.
A lot of times, when we’re doing any type of social media, it is because we are doing something that we can’t just be a social media user for the sake of being social media users. There is a difference between being a social media user and being a social media user to share something with the world. I think it is important to be true to yourself, and to share your true self.
I always thought that if someone wanted to “work” for someone else, they would be transparent. If you want to be “totally” transparent, then you will go for it. A really transparent person is someone I would call “the real thing.” A lot of us are not that type of person. We are not good at being real. We do things that make us uncomfortable, even if we are being honest.
Another thing I think is important about your true self, is that you don’t need to be perfect. If you want to be true to yourself, you know what’s important. You know what makes you special. You’re not going to get in to a relationship with someone and say, “Ok, I’m going to be honest with you. I’m going to tell you something a little off the wall.
You can do just fine being honest with your partner, but being honest with yourself is just as important. You need to know what youre capable of, because you will fall short of what you expect of yourself. If you believe you are great at your job and can do everything, you will quickly find yourself in a relationship and be disappointed, because you didnt believe you could. If you believe you could do everything, you will find yourself on your own and realize you are not.
The more we take pride in our abilities, the less we think we can do it. It’s the same reason we should always wear the same pair of shoes. If we can’t do it, we will find a way to cover it up.
