Controlling Chaos: Bows & Sequins

Last night at class, we had a guest speaker. It’s so surreal to meet the people behind the blogs I read. I was beyond thrilled to find out that Jessica from Bows & Sequins would be speaking.

Bows & Sequins in the flesh!

Her feedback and advice inspired me to start a facebook page for this blog. I am now a brand! Check out my facebook page here. Also, I am supposed to be “RAW” on my twitter feed. I got this! I so got this! Cover your ears and divert your eyes if you are sensitive! 

Truths that come out of Blog Workshop: I have been “sugar coating” it around here… I have been holding back- this is true. I can’t for the life of me completely let go. How do you surrender to the process (this coming undone and yet still reBUILDING)? I want to go to that place that is uncomfortable. 
Let’s get more real. I hide behind a pretty picture. I crop out the mess. And when all else fails, I divert your attention with a random blog post. You’re smart- have you not figured this out about me? I want to revel in my imperfections. I want to trot them out in broad daylight and I want to f*cking bask in my glory. I want to be imperfectly perfect. Mantra of the day: ::uncomfortable is good::. It hurts and it’s painful because you are growing and building. Change is hard. Bring it!

“You’re ‘gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk Oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone”
