That Awkward Moment When…

That awkward moment when you have a blog, write your thoughts and ideas… and they offend those closest to you. Writing about the moments in your life, and your opinion on them and not about the weather can be a hazardous thing.

Someone mentioned once that I should ghost write but what’s the fun in that.

Playing it safe hasn’t and sadly will never be a strength of mine. I dive, jump, run and go all in… 90% of the time.

Getting in trouble as a result of the words coming out of this mouth isn’t something relatively new. The reality is I have always gotten in trouble because of this mouth of mine. I just say things, that sometimes shouldn’t be said, or should be. Teachers in high school used to make me a special place by the door for my desk. All by my lonesome. Disrupting other students and talking is what I was best known for in some of my classes. I am sure this is why getting reprimanded for my odd actions, or thoughts isn’t all that scary anymore.

Getting into amazing situations is another specialty of this mouth. I have met amazing people, been to amazing places and subsequently received great grades in English and public speaking classes. Since I see my future in professional talking and relationship building I truly embrace the good with the bad. I have this thing for life, so may as well use it.

When it comes to outlandish statements, there is definitely a part of me that likes to rock the boat, say things to make a stir. Encourage people think twice about the way they pursue their life. When I write a post I always think of how it may affect those that are reading it. If it is about something that I know may be upsetting I write it in a fashion that doesn’t point fingers or criticize. What I write is a raw thought. Something that in this moment is important to me, and it is important for me to share it.

So here I am again, writing about moments in my life that will most likely offend no one (this time) but who knows on the next post. Get ready, it could be you ;)

Read It, Live It, Share It.

    I say go for it! Put yourself out there and don’t look back. One of my favorite quotes is “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind” -Dr. Seuss.

      Krista!
      I agree with you 100% In the end this is for me, and for others to learn through my experiences. I have to write them as I feel them, and that is that :)
