There's No Rain On My Parade

On Monday, I found out someone I would rather not know anything about my life found this blog. Oh great, it's going to be one of those kind of weeks. 


It instantly gave me that gut reaction of, "I'm going to shut it down." 


Then I started thinking. This is MY life. I write what I want to write. I post about what I want to post about. I like putting it all out there. The good, the bad, the ugly. It's MY life. I make the rules. I get this tiny outlet in the world, to share what I think, feel, see and do. It's my space to come and vent. To ask questions. To see other parts of people's worlds. To come in contact with people I would never have known about. To have made friendships with "strangers" who've become friends. 


So what if haters can come here and see my life. Guess what? If they didn't really care or weren't even a tiny bit jealous of my life then they wouldn't feel the need to come on here and stalk me out. I find it flattering the more that I think about it. 


So am I quitting blogging anytime soon? NOPE! I'm here to stay. And even better I'll give you some good facts. How about these jelly bellies......
I'm going to JAMAICA. To an all inclusive resort, where I plan on sunning myself while wearing sunscreen (unlike some leather face that I know). 
 
I have a fabulous family. I have fabulous friends.
 
The list could go on and on......


There's always going to be people out there who want to see you fail. There's always going to be that person who yells out petty, snide remarks. The key is to remember that those people are miserable, unhappy and want to rain on your parade. The best revenge is when you succeed.

I have totally been there before... People have found my blog and caused drama. So much so that they were meddling and telling my family what I was writing. Plus, people that I know in real life that I don't talk and don't like has found it. Who knows who else has? I was gonna make it private or at least start a private ne. One girl apparently called me lame. It did upset me. I then realized this is my blog, my space, and my outlet. Plus, if they are so consumed with my life then they must be jealous and their own lives must be so sad. There's always gonna be haters. It's kind of humorous actually.

Have fun in Jamaica!

Claire Kiefer said...

Hmmm, that's tricky since blogs are public. But you're right--it's your space to do what you want with! You have a lot to look forward to, and how sweet is that text from your boyfriend? It makes my day when my boyfriend sends me sweet tweets, too. :)

Good for you! My mom recently found my blog via someone telling her...still not sure who. Although I don't write anything I am embarrassed of, I just wanted my own outlet that my whole family didn't know about. Kinda bummed now :(

Adrienne said...

You go girl! Yeah! So glad you're not shutting down, I love your musings :)

Mrs. Pancakes said...

So true about the best revenge is when you succeed! Have an awesome time on your trip!

Deidre said...

One of the benefits of blogging under a psuedonym. This would totally freak me out, but I love how you're handling it!

Jax said...

The best revenge is DEFINITELY when you succeed! I dont even want to know how many people have my blog that I'd rather not. I often even think I should check my stats to see if my ex still reads it (blech) but then I dont.. b/c frankly.. I dont care! I'm happy and my blog changing b/c of someone I dont like would be giving that person WAY too much control over a part of my life! You go girl! You keep rocking!

You show them girl!

I used to wander the same thing, about someone I really don't want finding my blog, actually finding it. But I came to similar conclusions as you.

So just flaunt it J!
