Keeping it Real

H is from the Heart. If you are joining me from Blogging A To Z, welcome! Since the blog is already daily, with topics for each day [About: Schedule], there is no specific A To Z theme. I may even skip a few letters. Gasp. Clutch the pearls. The goal for this year is less crazy, more visiting. [Ze State of Ze Blog 2014]

In The Imposter Syndrome: Health & Fitness, Stellar Fashion and Fitness considers what has elsewhere been called “curated” lives.

“There’s a lot of talk about what we see on social media and how it’s the ‘best’ side of us, not the ‘real’ side of us.”

Have I done that?

It has never been my intention to present my life as a rose-strewn path. (It is, and I have no right to complain, but I’m getting ahead of myself.)

Change is interesting. Lately, there have been small changes for the better.

The issues in my life are those of stagnation rather than tragedy (Thankfully!). Same old, same old. Moping doesn’t make for good narrative.

Finally, I have whined so long and so hard on this blog over the years, I figure no one wants to hear it anymore. I’m certainly tired of living it.

Bottom line:

Riding well is the only thing I’ve ever really wanted. When I look out at my pasture and see two beautiful horses that I can’t ride, I feel like a failure every day of my life.

Which leads to guilt. How dare I. The world is full of problems so very, very much more serious.

I run on failure and guilt. For real.

    New moon in Libra tonight. Time for deepening reflection on our relationship to the world. How a propos!

  2. You are not a failure, nor do you have any reason to feel guilty. You have been blessed with a good life. Enjoy it. Some of us are not so lucky. But I for one enjoy all your blogs.

  3. I would think that one should reflect on one’s relationship to the world regardless of where a hunk of rock happens to be circling. #notanastrologyfan

    Yes, I have been and am lucky.
