hi dolls, I just finished writing a piece for an online magazine. They asked me to write about my experience living in the mountains etc. […]
I am sooo pumped for warmer weather, camping, spending large amounts of time outside. SO PUMPED.
The past couple weeks have been so great. I got to spend quite a bit of time with my Dad and we had some great talks. He is at an interesting time in his life and so am I. We both seem to be at a sort of cross roads. His cross roads are more literal where as mine are more virtual.
I have been working for a year now to grow my audience online. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that I am trying to reach as many people as I can. I have a message and I want to share it. Somehow saying this out loud has become very taboo on the internet. But it is no different than an author who desperately wants to publish a book. I want to share my creations with as many people as possible. I want to make my living in this way. I don’t see anything wrong with that, but as always some people do.
The internet is weird and still fairly new to humanity. As I grow my audience I learn more and more. I have learned that no matter your intention, message, words, there will be people who misunderstand, disagree, and are just plain offended by you. I am here to tell you that, that is ok. People for the rest of history will be offended. Some have a right to be and some don’t….it doesn’t matter either way.
All behavior exhibited is about the person exhibiting it. If I write something that terribly offends you, well that writing is all about me, not you. I promise you that I never intend to offend anyone and so if you find yourself offended about anything I do, well it’s not about you its about me. Truly.
I just need to say out loud (lol?) that I will never stop creating, living this crazy life, or quiet myself in fear of offending someone. Sometimes it seems so much easier to just be quiet and keep my head down. But then I will never see anything! I want to see it all! I want to experience all that life has to offer. I am shamelessly curious about it all. I will experiment and try my hardest to give myself and my family the best life possible. A life with freedom, creativity, love and laughter. A life that leaves a positive impression for most. But we all know that someone somewhere isn’t going to like it, and thats ok.
This blog post is a permission slip for myself and you reading this. You can do, be or have whatever the fuck you want. You can be your most authentic self. In fact the best thing you can do for humanity to be 100% your unique weird or mundanely normal self. Whatever sets your heart on fire. DO THAT! I will do my best to never be offended by another person being their true authentic self. I can’t make any promises, some people piss me off. Ha. It’s a catch 22 you see. But I can promise to do my best. You be you, I’ll be me. We can live in harmony.
Lol did you like that rhyme right there?
Anyways, all I am saying is that I genuinely hope the best for you. And I hope the best for me. Haley is working to be more Haley-ish every day. I know that the more I become me the more polarized I become to my audience. Love me or hate me. I will never not be me, I will never not be working towards ultimate freedom, exploration, creativity and curiosity. Because I like it, and thats a good enough reason.
Self love. Self worth. These are the two most important lessons in life. I am learning every day. I hope you are too.
I love you!
