Day 9: The Future and a Baby Giraffe

Didn't I already answer this question? How you hope your future will be like. Strange wording, but here it goes.

All that I hope for, for my future and for the future of my family, is to be happy, to be satisfied, and to be loved.

That's not too much to ask for, is it?

But enough of the questions. Happy Friday. And you know what makes Fridays happy?

{What Joelle?! The fact that it's the weekend or that I get to dress casually to work today???}

Of course not! A baby giraffe makes this Friday happy!

 
Sorry...I got these pictures in an email from my mother-in-law yesterday and I couldn't resist. They made me smile.

That's all. If I get rid of this ridiculous brain fart that I have going on right now, maybe I will write some more later.

Oh! I do have one more thing to say...it's more of a confession, if you will. So, I have all of these wonderful followers that I appreciate and love dearly. But recently I've realized an irrational fear of letting all of you down with my writing. You are all so supportive and wonderful to me, and I get scared that I will either let you down by A) not showing you my appreciation or B) that you will eventually become disappointed in my blog. I really hope that neither of these happen, but it's just something I've been thinking a lot about recently. Does anybody have any advice to get over this?

I promise, that's really all I have {for now}. And I hope you know that...

I LOVE YOU ALL!!!

xoxo,

But i do want one.

Sometimes i get uber depressed about my blog because I feel like it isnt cool enough..

and then i realize i am getting depressed about a blog..

and then I stop.

after i beg my husband to pay for a revamp.

the end.

Jillian - Thanks so much for the sweet words! I think I'll do just that...just keep writing. It makes me happy :)

Megan ~ Your blog is super cool. Much cooler than my little blog. And I hope you get your giraffe someday. And your lion. And your human.

xoxo,
Joelle

The giraffe pictures made my day. There is nothing better than baby animals. As for your fears- push through them sweetie. Yes I think we all blog for others to some degree but we also reach a point where we start to blog for ourselves. You will never lose your writing talent. Just focus on staying real, you might have emotional posts, you might have angry posts, or happy posts, just write how you feel and people will continue to love it.

here's my advice: more baby giraffes and other animals eating out of bottles. the end.
