More Happiness

“You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.” ~ Tony Hawk

Naturally, for this picture, I wanted a Tony Hawk quote, because he’s probably the most well known skate boarder in the U.S. Even my 72yr old mother knows of him. Yet, this quote really hits home with me, because my best friend, Kess Crystal, recently did a poll for bloggers, then released the results in her blog, Big Blogger Questions.  I know that every blogger on the grid did not participate in the poll, but I know a fair amount did. The results were a bit surprising, but I think the biggest surprise for me was the amount of bloggers that see blogging as competitive. It was 26%!! I have never seen blogging as competitive. I’m super happy to see talented photographer fashionistas take to blogging.
I started blogging as a distraction…as a form of therapy…a creative outlet. I never looked at other bloggers and thought, “I’m going to be better them.” I used to wonder how one blogger got chosen for a brand vs a blogger that I thought did better photographs, but as I stepped into blogger management, I realized that the designers have a certain vision for how they want their brand to be represented and each has their own criteria. Some will not take on bloggers that feature nudity or curse words. Some brands won’t consider a micro blogger (flickr only). I’ve never been angry with a friend for getting selected for a brand I wanted to blog for and I didn’t. I do my absolute best to surround myself with positive and supportive people. I don’t blog for the hopes of being popular or famous in a virtual world. I do it, because I’m addicted to it. What started off as a for of creative expression and therapy, has evolved to a creative adventure and full on addiction. I’m even prone to overdosing…taking on more than I can handle and edging dangerously close to blogger burnout, but alas, I’ve been able to reign myself in and make it all work.

Bad Girl

So, I wanted a quote about a bad girl being good or vice versa. I wanted a quote to epitomize the balance. In my search, I stumbled upon this:

I don’t want to be ‘Halsey: America’s Sweetheart,’ or ‘Halsey: Bad Girl.’ If you can sum up my career in a clickbait headline, I’ve done something wrong. Halsey

I love this for so many reasons. One of the reasons, really isn’t mine to tell, let me just say I’m feeling a great sense of pride on behalf of a good friend. The other is because this amazing young woman has summed it up perfectly. I’m not a famous anything…and well, I have no career, but I love what she’s saying here. I don’t want to be known as Sady the good girl (yeah, I know…not too many would believe that anyway), but I don’t want to be labeled a bad person or total bitch either. There are many sides to me. I often make jokes that some people are bi-polar and I’m more like quad-polar. I like to thing that I’m as multi-faceted as a quality diamond and have more layers than an onion. I believe I’ve achieved that and I think those that know me well would probably agree. I don’t take pride in much, because I’m extremely hard on myself. My friends fuss at me for this all the time, but if there’s one thing I will take pride in? I’m definitely not a book properly judged by my cover.

I’m true to myself. That is one thing I can say for certain. Yes, there are times that I falter and fall flat on my face, but you will always see me get back up…even if I have to crawl around for a good long while first. Good or bad…above all? I am strong.
