In the present world of bloggers and blogging and sponsored posts, paid agents, and events… Some people are just far better at being in the public eye than the other.
I don’t have time for that.
I’m just gonna write. Hardly edit. (Sorry grammar nazis, if I cared about my punctuation mistakes I would be paralyzed into keeping my posts in drafts forever. Nope.)
I’m just gonna write. I’m gonna stay honest. Raw and open. And more importantly with more purpose and positivity than just trying to prove how I’m so much cooler than the rest of them. I’m too old for the Mean Girls popularity contest going on around me right now. Isn’t it exhausting? To constantly compare yourself to others?
And here’s a #truthbomb: In words from the 1920’s poem Desiderata, a favorite of mine growing up, “For always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.”
What I think is most important is to just be yourself and to make sure that if you do make an impression, and have the opportunity to make even the smallest mark on someone’s life, it’s a good one.
Which is honestly the core of what I hope to be able to do with my work.
If you do have serious complaints about my grammar and punctuation, you can e-mail my editor Gustav at Gustav@sfbeautybohemian.com and he’ll be happy to file you under the F… for all the fucks I don’t give. Gustav is my dog. I love him. He’s also very understanding and a great listener.
