I’ve always wanted to create a blog. I’ve enjoyed writing since I was young, but I’ve just never taken the plunge and started one. Well, unless you count Live Journal from 10(!) years ago, and random pages I just put my thoughts on.  I guess I think to myself, “Who even cares what I have to say?” I can also hear the statement said to me once about a girl who posts her outfit every day, “Who does she think  she is, a blogger or something?” How stupid.

You know what bothers me? How in this world, we have to have a perfect balance. Not too thin, not too thick. Not too pretty, just pretty enough. Society says that we need to love ourselves. But, if we post selfies and achievements too much, we are conceited. God forbid we look in the mirror or post an #00td. Now, I know there is a fine line between this, and being selfish and arrogant, but I really think that we need to teach generations to come, that it is okay to celebrate ourselves and be the person God created us to be.

So I’m looking at this like it is my space. If someone stumbles on something that they like, GREAT! I hope I can help. If someone says “Who does she think she is, a blogger or something?”…. GREAT! I choose to inspire and lift people up. To be in touch with my creative side and celebrate it. To share ideas and tips that help me and others. If you have a creative mind like me, you know all too well that an outlet to express that is MUCH needed. So that’s what this blog is.

When I was thinking about what to name this blog, in about twelve seconds, the word “absolutely” came to mind. Obviously, I know what it means, but I looked up the definition to see why it came to mind.

Definition:

1. with no qualification, restriction, or limitation; totally.
2. independently; not viewed in relation to other things or factors.

Yep. It fit. So here I am… a blogger.

Always & Absolutely,

AJ
