Ron and I took staycation together this past week. Mine started Thanksgiving and ended Monday, I went to back to work yesterday. Ron’s staycation started earlier and he needed the time away from his job, he has only one call out this year and no vacation time taken, so he needed to get away from his job. He hung around the house, while I worked, as most know I work from home and we use the 2nd bedroom as the office. During my staycation I was able to sit back and just be quiet for a bit, it was nice for a change, as opposed to the normal everyday hustle and bustle of life. I had to time to really get to myself which again was really nice, there were no outer influences telling me what they think of me. I was able to breathe and as the saying goes “know myself”.
I changed the name of this blog to Sassy Diva Diaries as I felt the other name Live Unapologetically Brazen sounded like another one of those “self-help” blogs and Goddess knows there is enough of them online to go visit. Like I said I got to sit, be still, breathe, purge, feel and then think, it was very therapeautic for me to have this time. I want my blog to be about me, my feelings, my thoughts and whatever I feel like sharing at that time. I do not feel that I need help others to achieve whatever in their lives. So I bought the domain name and started to revamp the blog. At first I thought I would go with darker colors like deep purple and a gold yellow, then after time away and time to think, it came to me. PINK and PURPLE are the colors of my blog, those are my colors, fuck anyone who says differently. So today I took the time to change that up, yes I know there are a few things that I need to fix as well, I will work on those as time permits. I want to get my blog back up and running the way I want it, fuck what others think or say.
With our staycation we stayed in Tucson, we got out to do things and that led me to think that I haven’t written at all but what a year I have had or what a month or anything, I was too damned focused on making this blog a “self help” kind of blog and it really didn’t much of me as I was too busy worrying about offending anyone or sugar coating my words, can we say EWWWWWW. So I am back to writing for me and no one else, the way I see is this way, either you like it or you don’t. If you don’t like what I write then move on with your bad self and find what you want to read, find someone who will tell you what you want to hear and give you what you want to read. I am not everyone’s cup of tea and that is fine with me. I have spent the last decade of my life trying to please everyone and keep everyone happy, that is over and with the new decade upon us, I am making myself happy and Ron happy.
In the next few days I will share about all the awesome stuff we have been doing with pictures as the hermit life is no longer my life.
I am out of the broom closet, out of the rubble of my past, out of the burnt ashes of bridges burned and walls tore down. I am living my best life for me and living it out loud.
