If you want to be happy, be.

Did you know that THIS post is my most viewed post ever.

This one. This picture. Can someone please explain to me how a picture, with no caption or copy is my most viewed post. What about the posts that take me hours. Or the ones I cry over while I'm writing. But nope, you guys love this picture.

I posted this picture post back on July 16, 2013. I had just graduated law school. I was in the midst of studying for the bar exam and needless to say, probably pretty unhappy in that moment. I wish I had written something. I wish I knew where my mind/heart was when I posted this. 

This post was back when I would just post whatever. I wasn't trying to make any sort of money on this page. I didn't care about page-views or likes or comments. I was posting what I was currently feeling. I wasn't posting lists (because people love lists) or to-dos (because their pinable). It was a different era. I knew nothing about affiliate links, sponsored posts or anything. 

I was being authentic to me. 

Sometimes I get a little carried away with trying to make money and make it as a blogger that I totally lose site of why I even want to do this. Now, don't get me wrong, if I can make it as a blogger, my life dream will come true. I work hard at this blog, but I also want to remain true to what I started. 

I love this simple picture (that had over 5000 page-views-- what?!). I love what it says, but I really love what it stands for. I hope you, lovely readers of Everyday Grace, always know that I will always do my best to stay authentic on this space. Sure, you might see a tampon sponsored post on here eventually (a girl can dream)... but I promise it will always be me. 

If you want to be happy, be. 

Happy Thursday friends, I hope its a great one.

  2. Love this so, so much. For one - I love that it's your most viewed post because doesn't that just prove that we ALL just want the same thing in the end? To be happy? While those paths of getting there will be different, we're all headed towards the same thing. And I love when it feels like we're all united! Second of all, what a great reminder for us bloggers (and nonbloggers!) to just "do you." To be authentic. To share, post, talk about, and not talk about whatever you want. Great post, girl. Wishing you a great weekend! xo

  3. Awe love this! It's so big to be authentic to yourself and readers. Thanks for the reminder :)

  4. Being Authentic is incredible important in this day and age. Kudos to you for recognizing that and pushing forward. All the best.

  5. I love this! Thanks for the great reminder.

  6. It's one of those quotes that will just always ring true for me, no matter what stage of life I'm in.

  7. I learned this late in life, but, I love the person I am today.


I love hearing from all of you and greatly appreciate all your feedback and comments! xx Kristen
