- smaller size (yes, a phrase)
- erupting (flowers people, flowers)
- hot mess (yes, another phrase - I change my mind a lot! What can I say?)
Don't you just love them? Especially us blogger-types. We use them, mold them, scold them, or they scold us. We are good at using them. We are bad at using them. They are spelled wrong, they are spelled right. Somehow, even with errors, the message is clear.
My adorable little sister thinks I am too careful on my blog. That I don't have at it with both guns blazing. I know she might think me a guns-blazing kind of girl, but I don't always feel that way on the inside. Am I reactive at times? Oh yes I am. Am I passive at times? Oh yes I am.
This is because, no matter how prolific you are on your blog, no matter how succinct, no matter how much you swear, no matter how much you avoid it, no matter what, you are not "putting it all out there." We self-edit. We might let little things slip here and there, but we edit ourselves.
How could we not? Even when trying to be brutally upfront and honest, it's still only your view of the thing. We've all heard this,
There are three stories. Your story, their story, and the real story.
I don't know who writes the real story, but it's out there somewhere!
For me? I'm boring at times, I'm aggressive at times, I'm quiet at times (even me!), I'm LOUD at times, I'm annoying always.
But to you guys, you guys that I read every day, I love all the disparate and similar views. I love the loud and the quiet. I love the inflammatory and the salving. I just love y'all. Yes.
