The One Where I Admit I Want To Be Madonna...kinda.

There are all kinds of quotes out there about how you create your life. I also know that God has a plan for all of us. It feels so good when you are on track with what you are supposed to be doing. All just seems right. But then there are those time when you feel like you are stuck in limbo. You feel bored and like your aim is off. This is how I am feeling right now. I feel like if I was Madonna {not the religious one...the pointy bra one} I would be due to reinvent myself once again. I admire that about her. I love all kinds of things. If I was in high school I would definitely be referred to as a "poser." I'd like to spend a week as a goth or emo kid. I'd like to be the popular cheerleader. I'd even like a swing at being the nerd. Ooh and maybe even the school slut...lol. I just don't know where I am right now. In blog world it is almost like high school. You have the religious blogs...papercraft blogs...vintage lover blog...cooking blog...decorating blog...political blog...etc. When I think about it I am a bloggy "poser." I wish I had my "thing." Something that I excel at...something fantastic! I feel a little flakey and average about a lot of the things I do. I hope I figure it out soon. Thank you all for taking a ride inside my brain. Please exit the ride to your left. Watch your step.

You do have your "thing"...switching it up and keeping us interested in your kids, your crafts, your schedules (or lack thereof), your travels, Dr. Hubby, Toby, parties, TV, and your pictures. Every day nonsense!

Oh please...come on now...you do have your own thing! Just by being YOU! We should never try to be like someone else..."There is only one you" be her! We all need each other my dear for who we are...how else could we give who we are? Just be YOU..that is always enough! :D

You aren't a poser at all!! You have a great, fun, family blog, with some celebrity news thrown in.

I know. I know. I'm feeling the same way. Maybe we blog best about being lost. Perhaps that's a new genre in the blog world... I think of you as a savy mom, wife, and animal lover who drives an Escalade which got crunched. That's quite distinctive. I think being yourself is good advice. I just wish I knew who I am. Then maybe I could advise you...

I think this is what I like best about your blog. There ISN'T a set theme. Some days you blog about your family, sometimes about your crafts, sometimes about tv shows, your vacay's - I like the mix up. I find myself skimming the ones that are mostly themed.

OMG (insert Valley Girl tone here) I know exactly what you mean! When I first starting blogging, I think I had purpose. Now I feel as though I have NONE. NADA. ZILCH. Maybe there's a point or two to be taken from Mag ... try something new! It can't ever hurt...well except maybe the slutty girl thing.
I always tell my students when they are moving away that they have a chance to reinvent themselves. Out with the old and in with the new. Maybe we could apply some of that to our adult lives as well.

I was never a poser...but I did always wonder if the goth girls at my high school ever wished they were anything else...and what it would be like to spend my days dressed in black clothes and combat boots.

Oh quit it! You have a great blog. Just be yourself! We can't compare ourselves to others. God gave each one of us our own talents to share and you are doing a great job at it :D

Sue said...

That's funny you feel that way, but that's not how others feel when they come over to visit you and want to take a break from their life.

Aren't we a combination of many things? many interests? depending on the season of our life, one may be more prominent.

You are perfect just the way you are.

I always get mad at myself because my posts are too long!! I just have way too much to say, and I'm learning to deal with it.

We are all evolving every day. I like change, and when the mood screams for it, I listen.

DesertHen said...

I think we all have times in our lives when we feel this way. I know I have! But then I'm usually reminded in some form or another to just remember to be ME.

I love coming to your blog because you have a variety of things you post about. It keeps me interested and entertained! =) I admire your crafty talent and all of the fun vacation posts that you do! Oh, and I miss you when you are not posting on a regular basis!

I love this quote by Dr. Seuss and often use it to remind myself and others that YOU are unique and very special in this world; "Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You."

I never thought of blogland like that but you are right!
I feel that way too. I just tell about what's happening in my life which is sometimes really boring but it is what it is.
I like you and I like your blog because I feel like we have alot of things in common and you are just a real woman, a real wife, a real mom!
Keep on truckin' girl!

I am totally feeling that way in real life- it is like a midlife crisis sot of.I don't want to run off and have an affair, but I would like to re invent my whole life- just not sure what it would be.
I have been ill for over a year and I get better, and then crash again and I am so fed up! Maybe wearing a pointy bra would help, lol. When I figure me out, I will figure out my blog. Good luck with your quest, although your blog rocks! That is why I came back after a year of being bedridden :)

It's called the "Mid-Mom Crisis". You want to reivent yourself in some small way because it's probably time to do it. Kids are in school, you have more free time than before to think about who you are. We're sort of mid-life now which just means half our choices are over and many of the ones we made (even if they are good) preclude others.

I just got through the Mid-Mom Crisis and found my groove again. For me, it meant going back to work part time doing something ultra rewarding that I love. For you it may be something different. Stretch yourself a little and you'll be surprised at what you can do!
