Live Out Loud


 

Live Out Loud

     —I Live Out Loud.

I have a sense you may have perceived that from this blog.

Frankly, that’s why everybody and their grannies  have blogs nowadays.

Haven’t you gotten the memo, Bucko?

Freedom. 
Liberation.

A virtual room to E::X::P::L::O::D::E  in.

A platform where you can Scream. Yell.  Cry.  Mourn.  Laugh.

And just Be.

You.

A space where you can announce your opinion  (even if it’s unpleasantly, offensively, insidiously ridiculous).

You, my friend,  can be the Princess of Blogosphere, the Bad-Assed Mommy of the Universe,  A Bitch on Wheels.   

Sure, not everybody is going to be your fan.

I know.  It’s hard to believe, isn’t it?

Damn  fools.

And you may have readers tell you anonymously (because  most  assholes will never use their real names) that your grammar sucks, your stories are stupid, & nobody gives a shit about what you have to say anyhow.

But don’t be concerned about that.

It doesn’t matter.

If you worry what other people think, you’ll sit at your computer without  voice, without heart, without soul. 

Write anyway.

Write your stories.

Breathe your words.

Your truth.   

Your  reality…

Into the World.

And perhaps,

Somebody out there reading will be better because of it……

——–Dear, Reader,  do you feel uninhibited  &   liberated when you write?    Do you live out loud?

    Hi Kim; Everything you said….I concur. And yes, writing liberates me. And usually when I need it the most. Keep writing. Keep liberating….yourself and others!
    Hugs and kisses my friend,

    Kim – this is wonderful! When I first started blogging I said, “No one is going to read this OR care”. My hubby then – wisely – asked me, “Does it matter? If you are enjoying it – doesn’t that make your blog a success?”

    …So guess what?! My blog was a successful blog the very first time I pressed enter!

    (of course, I still worry about folks liking it, but I suspect that’s natural. Hubby, on the other hand, thinks I rock and is more than happy to be my ONLY reader!)

        Hi Kim! I thought I’d come over here and answer your question as to what I was singing when I made Fried Rice. I was listening to – and singing along with – Al Martino’s “You’re All I Want For Christmas”.

        You’re absolutely right…it was hard to press enter the first time, but SO exciting, too!

        …..thinking of you!

    My blog is where I am me. 110% me, not the me that is who I am when I’m at work or around my snobby ass neighbor who I bite my toung around so I don’t tell her exactly what I think of her daughter who is twice as annoying as she is. The way I see it, my blog is my world. And if someone doesn’t like it guess what, they don’t have to read it. I feel so free when I write. To me it’s almost better than my bi-monthly visit to the therapist…wonder if that’s a good thing or not…oh well.

    Perfect… “If you worry what other people think, you’ll sit at your computer without voice without heart, without soul.” This could also be said of life – if we care what people think, we’ll freeze up and never walk in our dreams and desires!

    Remember that old saying by Abe Lincoln, “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.” Well, the same is true of pleasing them – you can please some all of the time, please all some of the time, but you NOT please all of the people all of the time,

    We truly do NOT know who’s lives we touch because so many fail to say so. KIM!!! Your blog touches my life and heart – thank you.

    You did good once again Kim – love It!
    Where did you get your talent for expressing so well what everybody feel deep down without revealing it???

    I cared and I don’t anymore – My granny used to say “there will always be people who won’t agree with you or treat you badly – you can’t do anything about it, so go out and be you, inspire others, take care of the ones who matter.”

    My blog is my lively diary – every feeling, every idea, everything that makes me angry or sad is there – no lie – all 100% me. And for the ones who don’t like it there are millions blogs around the place…………

    Have a great day Kim!

    So loving this post and the fact that you stopped by and gave me Birthday wishes. And yes, go right ahead and steal our margarita bar idea! Imitation is the sheerest form of flattery!

    I have always believed that this blog is about me and for me. Yes its great if someone likes it enough to read it and better is someone wants to leave a comment. But really its not necessary.

    My all time favorite quote is a Dr. Seuss quote it says……

    “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
    — Dr. Seuss

    I certainly feel liberated writing on my blog, basically because not only is it my space, but a space shared actively as well as passively by those I love. My best friends, and biggest fans will never comment there 🙂 I find that cute. Some will even phone in or email me to tell me about a post they particularly liked.

    You know, Kim, I actually enjoy reading old posts from my own blog. It is often like reading an old diary – and wondering – did I really write that? 🙂

    And that’s what I like most about your blog. It is an anytime read for me. Hugs

      —–Vidya,
      That is true. I read back and think “I wrote that?”
      Recently I put all of my blogs together about Kay…and I have over 200 pages. I told Mr. L. “WHAT the hell! Is that all i’ve been doing is writing!?”
      It’s therapy. Better than drugs. Better than Prozac!
      Love your blog, too. xxxxxxxxxxxx Big Kiss on you cheek.

    Have you heard the Rascal Flatts Song “Love you Out Loud”? That reminds me of you. 🙂

    I love baking and photographing the food, but writing is my least favorite part of blog posting. I need to remember to just breathe the words – I like that expression.

    Yes! My new goal is to be the Bad-Assed Mommy of the Universe!

    I do think writing is freeing. I don’t always feel free with what I write *about* though, if that makes sense, but I think having a totally anonymous blog (or being brave enough to be totally yourself in public!) would be incredibly liberating. Thanks for the insight!

      I know there are many anonymous bloggers out there…That’s okay, too.

    I think I’m a lot louder in real life than I am on my blog… but it’s liberating because I write about stuff that interests me.

    I used to feel more uninhibited until I realized that a lot of people I know in real life are reading my blog and suddenly…I feel like I have to be careful what I say? But I still do love blogging…and I still do HATE those anonymous comments…

    This was great! I do feel liberated to write. I think if I knew my mother read all of my posts, I wouldn’t feel that way. I’m glad she doesn’t!

    Well put! I write first and foremost for myself. I write privately in my journal almost every night, and those thoughts I keep only for my own eyes, and it holds a special spot. I also blog whenever the mood strikes me and the time allows. But again, I do it first and foremost for myself, the relaxation and pleasure that comes with taking a thought and giving it a voice. I am driven to write by some force from within. I might delight that someone likes what I’ve had to say, and I might think about what others may critique, but it neither encourages nor discourages me from plodding along and writing more. Writing is like breathing. I’m not stopping just because someone doesn’t like the way I breathe. They can find their own air elsewhere if that is the case. Write on Kim, write on…

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~ I agree. I write to “Breathe.”
      Beautifully said.
      Keep writing, too, Phil.
      the world want to read what you have to say 🙂 x
