I think I really needed a dose of Zootopia today. It is funny how life will bring things in just when you need it. Ginnifer’s words really spoke to me this morning. Being a blogger is hard for me, sometimes. Well a lot of the times, especially in the last few months. It is hard to get opportunities presented to you that you worked really hard to achieve only to have to close the door. It is heartbreaking and frustrating. I am not going to lie, I went to bed last night super sad. It seems that is the norm anymore.
I was switching computers yesterday and didn’t get a chance to write this post. I think that was a good thing. Because this morning I read this interview and the words really spoke to me. Ginnifer was told she would never be a leading lady. I agree with her, that is silly. We ladies come in all shapes and sizes, we all have stories, so why can’t Ginnifer or another lovely actress tell them for us? She is as beautiful as she is talented. If my story was told, I would want her to tell it. When I started blogging I was told by family, friends, etc, that I wouldn’t make it. I am to nice, they said. I don’t understand why you can’t be a blogger and be nice? That just seems strange to me, you know? Another thing I heard was I was too scatter brained, which is true. I am scattered brained and sometimes forget things or don’t do things right, but I just push on. I have never been a quitter and don’t plan to start now.
Another thing that spoke to me was Ginnifer’s words of infinite possibilities. I am holding on to those right now. Because I am a firm believer that when you have turn down one opportunity, no matter how much it hurts, another one will come along. I have to believe that. I believe that if you take a leap, the net will appear. In other words if you take that first jump something will be there to catch you. Does it bother me that I have to turn down opportunities that would elevate me as a blogger? Yes! It makes me wonder what am I working for? I sometimes feel I am in the same place I was two years ago. But then I have to look at all the other things going on in my life. I am starting a new graphic design business, I am getting wonderful products to review, I am number 17!!! at out of a 1,000 tech bloggers, and I may have an opportunity to work with Carnival cruises. When one door closes, a couple more open. And when they don’t I just take that leap and believe the net is there.
I have had wonderful, wonderful opportunities thanks to Disney. I have met celebrities, visited sets, finally made a trip to LA, and went back to Disney World. Not bad for someone that people swore would never amount to anything. Like Ginnifer said “Anyone can be anything”. I absolutely believe that. I instill that in my girls every day. You can be anything you want to be and if the doors close on you, bust them down.
I guess I kind of went to the sad place but I like to let you all know sometimes that my life isn’t Facebook awesome. Sometimes I get sad over my job and you know what, that’s okay! But I don’t live in that sadness. The world is full of infinite possibilities and I aim to go out and grab some 🙂 I hope you will too, because your net is there, you just have to believe.
