Monday Brain Exchange
This week’s question for the Monday Brain Exchange is:
Do your family and friends know about your blog? If so, what do they think of it? If not, why haven’t you told them?
Yes, most people close to me know about my blog. I’m not sure what everyone thinks of it. I know the topic probably bores some of them to tears, thus the reason why they only check in every now and then. My husband reads every single thing I post. As does my mom. Although, my husband has never and probably will never comment and my mom only comments occasionally. That’s okay, I know they’re out there.
I have a personal blog that I’ve had since 2001. I used to spread that thing all around “teh interwebs”, but lately I’ve been holding it a little more closely as I try to figure out what I’m doing with it. I like having a place to vent, but I have felt a little more exposed with that one lately so my posting has been hit-and-miss.
At the finish line for yesterday’s Race for the Cure there was a group of belly dancers performing. They’re pretty sexy, you know? Their bellies are not perfectly flat and six-pack like all the media tells us that women are supposed to have. Instead, they are rounder and sensual, the way that women are built by nature.
I’m increasingly frustrated at a world that tells everybody they need to fit in specific molds to be attractive (both men and women have media-promoted molds) and I wish more people would recognize the unique beauty found in all of us.
This has been an overall crummy week of running. I had a pretty good run on Tuesday, but the rest of the week was hard for me. It was super windy every day, which makes me feel like I’m being blown over as well as causing extreme eye irritation/burning/watering/itching and a stuffed up nose. Beyond that, my motivation was just flagging. I don’t know what the deal was, but I’ve just felt exhausted.
I’m hoping next week is much better.
