The Truth Is I Usually Don't Fit
Because my pins were rejected by some people I have never met and never will meet. In the blogger community there are these things called share groups. Because really ya'll, what's the point of a post if no one ever sees it? So these share groups help share each others' posts.
I created a pin that I was proud of. Yep, it might have been my big ole smiling face with some carefully positioned words for the title of my post, but it was mine. And I liked it enough to put it out there for the world to see. And (insert pause for drama) the post was rejected by the share board. And I cried like a baby. It's silly now that I think of it. It really is. It's a difference of opinion, and they didn't like mine. I was told not to give up and keep trying.
For some reason that hit a nerve with me..... because... deep down I don't want to be like everyone else. I don't want the perfectly positioned pin, the 200000 pictures until I get the perfect lighting.... no... I want to be me... the hot mess Momma who is doing the best she can to get after her dreams.
I exercise among chewed up dog toys, trucks and cars, balls, and Lil Man's power tools scattered about. My life is not perfect, and I don't need or want my blog, instagram, twitter, facebook or pinterest to be any different than who I am. I want to be true to myself, and to you.
So, I am going to take that advice to not give up and keep trying, but instead of trying to be like everyone else to fit in. I'm going to be me.
