thank you so much

I cannot thank you all enough for the overwhelming response from my post about my abs. Holy cow. It was kind of a love fest that was so strong it had me buzzing until 1AM.

Thank you for that, now I’m really tired.

I kid, I kid.

Seriously though, I cannot say thank you enough for the overwhelming support I felt by sharing my “keeping it real” story with you all.

To be honest, sometimes I look at the amazing fashion and lifestyle bloggers (and friends) who have dozens -or hundreds- of comments and hundreds of thousands of readers and I wish, just a little bit, that I could be like them. That I could put together amazing posts about home trends, color inspiration, and what’s hot at Fashion Week.

But as my lady, Joyce, always says, “I don’t have a dessert ministry. I’m more of the meat and potatoes.”

So though I’d love to share with you some amazingly curated posts like the ones I see and devour myself on a regular basis, I know that’s not my purpose here on earth. And then I quietly go back to writing about intentions, my life (and the not-so-great-parts too), and how to move past clutter.

It doesn’t get the same fan fare as the beautiful blogs I enjoy so much, but it is simply what I’m meant to do.

So thank you for yesterday’s kindness. It made me feel a little bit like a princess.

… A princess that is told she is beautiful for sharing a crappy photo of herself on her blog.

    Just as you are looking at those successful fashion/lifestyle bloggers with all their comments and readers, lots of us look at your blog and business and think the same things… myself included! Keep up the good work!

    It really was such a good post. And as someone who did have an actual eating disorder, I know the internal battle about weight is a hard one. Thanks for your post!

    I still think the black bikini is hot…

  4. I have to say, as a style/fashion blogger myself, that I find your site WAY more inspiring than many of those you’re referring to. 🙂 Keep ’em coming!

    Oh, I love that abs post! It’s just more evidence of what a genuine person you are and how you are committed to your purpose to help others. You are a great friend to all, Jess!
