One of my favorite parts of entering a new relationship is the motivation and drive that new special someone gives you. They inspire you to be the person you wished you would become one day despite current circumstances. When asked about aspirations, are you not lofty and hopeful? You share your true desires, your deepest dreams, and reveal the little quirks that make you who you really are. Don’t build up walls and limit the accomplishments you hope to achieve. Share them with the one you love, allow them to provide encouragement along the way. Help each other to discover dreams. Turn can’ts into cans, turn dreams into plans.
It’s been a while since I’ve fallen for anyone. Years really. I forgot how great this feeling was, the fact that you have no idea where your future with that person may lay, the mutual trust you endow with another, the loneliness you feel at night sleeping alone. Vulnerability isn’t easy. It isn’t simple to join your life with another, even if only temporary, but it sure is worth it.
Reading a girl’s blog is perhaps even more personal than reading her diary. While a journal entry is just words on a page, blogs allow the writer to interact with followers, displaying her true personality and disposition toward others.
A few girls in my sorority house are active bloggers. Through reading them, I have realized the importance of meaning what you type and representing yourself to the best of your abilities. Just last week I read an entry that looked down upon girls who wore brands like Forever 21 and other mass discount shops. She wrote that real designers need to anticipate the copying of their clothing before the cheaper brands begin to sell them to their demographic. While this might be true to the business aspect of the industry, it is nothing but ignorant to suggest that only the most expensive and luxurious brands are suitable for those who wish to embrace the art of fashion.
At the end of the day it does not matter that your sweater cost as much as my month’s rent. What does matter however is the problem with women thinking they are better than one another based on the prices of their clothing, the designers of which they flaunt, or the status they believe material things can define them. Reading these statements were bad enough but realizing the genuine belief behind them was even worse; I thought more highly of those with whom I find in my company.
I sometimes find myself being too candid with my tumblr, yet I also embrace the chance it gives me to write and reflect upon my experiences months or even years later. I would cringe to look back on writings and read a selfish or crude comment written by myself; I hope to only encourage those in the battle against life’s challenges and promote the beauty which surrounds us. From now on I will be taking a more conscious effort to write about things I could truly defend and state with personal conviction. As bloggers, we all need to remember that our statements affect others, despite how small we might originally believe them to be.
