When did “real” become a 4 letter word?
You know what I mean. A dirty word. A word that you avoid. One of those descriptors that you run from like Chris Brown leaving an anger management class.
But “extreme“? Now THAT’s a word.
Want a new look for summer? Pshaw! You need a new look for LIFE. Extreme makeover it is!
Want to make the most of your grocery budget? Poppycock! You won’t need a budget with extreme couponing.
Want to lose a few pounds? Don’t be a wuss. Be the BIGGEST loser of them all.
Hell, even blogging has gotten into the mix. Publish a blog as the person you are. I think not. You, Mr. Heterosexual white male, should be taking on the combined personas of your lesbian neighbor and loving wife and blogging as an authority on all things lesbian.
Is anyone else’s head spinning?
I know what you’re thinking. What’s so great about doing little things? Who cares about small accomplishments? Those things are so…
NORMAL. *dun dun dunnnnn*
Yup, I said it. Normal. Real. Everyday, even.
It’s ok. Take a moment to let it set in.
* Jeopardy theme music *
That, ladies and gents, is what this blog is all about. The everyday. The small things. The mundane regularities and unexpected little treats that are, when we’re honest with ourselves, enough to make anyone smile.
In fact, I would even say that it’s our ability to recognize special hidden moments and treasure tiny rays of sunshine that make life truly amazing.
Living life with Style need not take the form of an extreme makeover. But those fabulous earrings you found on Etsy? They can carry you through the summer.
Being a woman of Substance need not involve getting every grocery item you buy in the next 10 years for free. But knowing how to make the most of what you have is truly priceless.
And Spunk? Ha! Let me count the ways…
Interested? I hope so.
Until next week, HAPPY PRIDE!Bhan Voyage Boredom is a gateway drug. Avoid it at all costs.
