Social Marketing Ninja, bestselling author, and all around amazing person, Kristen Lamb, has blogged about bullying several times over the last few days. In fact, today’s blog is a must read for every woman. Anyway, while reading of these blogs I realized I had stopped blogging because I was scared. I didn’t want to offend anyone, write an opinion that might be wrong (how can an opinion be wrong?) or maybe a little too personal.
Then I realized I had things I wanted to say. Not controversial things really, not offensive generally, and my opinion is my own—though open to change due to the input of new, verified information. So what the hell am I holding back for? Training. Long years of training. Someday I’m going to figure out why my family always felt others were better and that we had to keep quiet and be good little folks. Not my personality, really, but black sheep can be trained—to a point.
Soooooo, I’m planning to blog on a more regular basis. Just letting you know, you may find out who the real me really is. On that note, I give you a song I really like by a singer I admire. Reba McEntire and “The New Me”:
