Unreality Check

Something happened this weekend that made me so miserable, I literally wrote an entire blog post about how much I suck. It was brutal.

I didn't publish it because I decided I don't want to wallow in my misery. This blog is a place where I can get away from the stress of being me.

This blog is a place where I don't have to live in reality. I can be anything I want. I can do anything I want.

It's a place where I can eat fast food all day and not gain a pound.




It's a place where I can go to the beach any time I want.




It's a place where I look fabulous even while I'm doing chores.




It's a place where I kick ass.




It's a place where I'm not allergic to cats.




It's a place where I'm always fabulous.




It's a place where I can take risks without getting hurt.




It's a place where I feel beautiful.




It's a place where I have a lot of friends who will never leave my side.




It's a place where I have the best job in the entire world.




...I wish blog world was real world.

You read my mind Jen. I have a blogpost up but it cuts through the dreams & brings me back to reality. I didn't want to publish it but there is the good with the bad so I did. You are fabulous & we all are fabulous. I'm sorry to hear that you were down, I really am. You are beautiful & you do kick ass!! Big Cyber *Hugs*

That is such a beautiful and such an honest post. I feel the very same about my own blog a lot of the time.

Beautiful post...I loved the kick ass picture that kick looked fierce ha...when bad things try to come your way...just do that kick its ass back to where it came from.

im glad you didnt post it jen . you should be trying to tell yourselves that you are thebest. though it seems cheesy to do so. it actaully works if only temporarily.

sometimes i do wish that what i present in my blog was the real me . without all the bad stuff in my life.

Vivek Nanda said...

I really dont know if there is a place like it, but I wish you get there. One thing is at least you feel your blog is close to that place...so utilize it till you get to the real one.

Yes! Yes! and Yes to all! What a great Monday Morning Post!!!

Sherin said...

Oh no. Hope everything's better. You can email me anytime you need someone to talk to. That's what blogger friends are for: we all love you!!! You are beyond awesome and kick ass!

But yes: I sometimes agree the blogging world was real as well. It'd be so much easier!

Tatty said...

Hey my dear!!!

JUST ME said...

It sounds cheesy as all hell but if you can work on changing your perception - you can almost always feel just a little bit fabulous.

It's good to get the crap out though, I'm glad you did.

And those models eating those fries are pretty gross to me. They're waaayyyy too skinny. thin you enjoy life and be that skinny? Unless your metabolism has been invaded by aliens, or you have tapeworm...fast food is going to affect us all the same way, in the end. :)

You are beaaauuutiful mama.

I am loving your "kick ass" photo. I wish the blog world was real too. This weekend I found out some harsh news too! It was so embarrassing that I cried myself to sleep, and was so positive that the entire world was laughing at me.

You don't suck. At all.

This is what is great about your blog, whether your up or down you always have such great posts. I hope whatever has you down doesn't keep you down for long.

My Heart Blogged said...

Sometimes we are our own worst critic. I totally get where your coming from. I wish I had a different life. I wish we could do what we want, and love. Life is so unbelievably unfair, and cruel sometimes. I need to remember to be thankful for all the wonderful things I do have. Hope you feel better soon.

This was deep. I sometimes wish that too. And sometimes I fantasize too much. It's good to have somewhere to escape though. I believe everything will go fine after this though Jennifer. Just keep pushing through. *hugs* :)

I always know just what to say, and anybody who disagrees gets a swift mouse-click out of my life!

In our minds, you are just as fabulous in real life as you are on the blog! Seriously, you are one amazing girl, and everything is going to work out. I just know it. *hugs*

I often wish the blog world were the real world too. I agree with a lot of your reasons but particularly with the friendship issue. In reality I don't have many close friends. We don't seem to be as disappointed or let down by blogger friends. I hope you are ok. I love you.

I feel this same way so often lately! I definitely use my blog and other peoples blogs as a way of escaping, of entering a world where all that matters is beautiful, inspiring clothing and pictures. It's a nice break from reality!

I couldn't agree more with your last statement, and honestly, since I've been away from my friends in CA blog land is such an escape!

Heidi said...

Jennifer-- I really want to thank you sincerely for your comment on my blog today. Sometimes, all one needs is someone to come along side her & say, "me too." I absolutely never expected anyone to say much to my post-- I really didn't think anyone would read the whole thing! But your supportive words meant so much to me, I really got emotional & read you comment again. Thank you!

Amy said...

You are beautiful you are amazing and you are fabulous...NEVER forget that!!!

Lots of love!
