Not sure if its because I'm feeling sick and in a grumpy mood or if its just that time of the month but I feel a rant coming on. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
I decided today that I was going to write everything that is on my mind. Over the past 3 years I have tried to write about what was on my mind, what products I liked, and what I thought my readers wanted to read about. It started out as a daily journal of my life and my goal to save money. In my journey to save money I discovered less packaging, environmental impact of my purchases, and you can in fact live a organic lifestyle on a budget.
Most the time I get many amazing comments from readers who love what I'm doing and have joined me in my journey. On occasion I get comments about how disgusting things are, how could I do that, and how I'm going too far with everything. I was alarmed at first and started rethinking everything I was writing. Well today I decided that I will no longer hold my thoughts back when it comes to living a greener lifestyle.
To those who find my post a bit too far my advise to you is stop reading this. Move on to another blog that you feel fits your life. There are so many amazing blogs out there you just need to find the one that fits you. I write about my journey and what has worked and not worked. I offer advise which you can take or not take it. Do with it what you will. But don't hate on me. I have so many people who love and support what I am doing and I would rather surround myself with them.
I read dozens of blogs some of which I love 100% and some of which I love 90%. Some are religious which is totally opposite of me, and some are just cheesy but I get good info from. It's not my job to judge them and point out that I don't like about what they write. Its a free country and people can write what they want. I can choose to go else where and don't waste my time stressing with it.
I write for myself and to help others. I love to show people that you really can save money and live a greener lifestyle. I love sharing products that are good for the environment. I love sharing with people. I love teaching people. I am who I am take it or leave it. Because when it comes down to it I don't care what people think about me. I'm green suck it.
So my question to you is do you have people judge you because of your lifestyle?
Do you lose sleep over what people think about you?
Do you bite your lip instead of speaking how you really feel?
