I thought things might slow down with all the “owning it” going on in the blogosphere, but I was most definitely wrong! I couldn’t wait another week to share these posts; they are so great and needed to be posted immediately. I love seeing how different bloggers are running with this idea and talking about what they need to own.
It’s good stuff.
Katherine — So broke ass she had to eat pasta after it spilled out all over the sink. Oh, man. I too will own how much food I eat off the floor if it’s expensive. I’m clumsy and poor — what can I do? I believe it strengthens the immune system.
Keri — Owning that she’s taking a long vacation. People do not take enough vacations! I hope she’s having a great time!
Tiffany — Even though she’s a life coach, sometimes her self-esteem still isn’t the best. Oh and she has major “aisle rage” and refuses to grocery shop.
Alicia — Oh, did she ever own it. When she Tweeted at me, that this was “the hardest post she’s ever written,” I knew it was going to be big. And it was — she owned the anxiety and depression she’s been battling in secret and declared that they will no longer own her. Seriously, a brave blogger.
Bridget — Owns her healthy lifestyle. This post made me say “Oh, snap!” several times. But seriously, why is it OK for people to pick on her for being healthy? She doesn’t pick on them for being unhealthy.
Maria — Sometimes she weighs herself. Sometimes she doesn’t. “I reserve the right to change my mind depending on where I am in my life and what’s working best for me.” Hell yes, you do! (All of you!)
Holly — She “sucks” as a health living blogger. Really, she just doesn’t fit the stereotypes…which is so damn refreshing!
Sophie — Sophie keeps me well-fed, and I love how she owned her cooking in all these different ways. I especially love that she owns being in the kitchen. “So what if I’m like a 50s housewife?” AMEN, sister.
Nicole — People may call her a skinny bitch; she’s not sorry she has a high metabolism. I wish that was mine but props to her for owning it!
Mrs. Fatass — She ran with this concept; personally, my favorite is that she owns calling herself “Mrs. Fatass.”
Loretta — She’s breastfeeding her son (“my boobs, my business”) and watches the Kardashians. There are a lot of other good ones on the list but those are my favorites.
Suzanne — Doesn’t particularly like camping or hiking; does like spending money on clothes. And likes guys under 6 feet. I don’t personally know her except through the blogosphere, but I feel like I really know her after this post!
Nicky — She’s political. In academia. Gasp — but she’s owned it! And she’s going to be owning her PhD soon enough!
Lauren (my Little Sis from Sigma Kappa): I’m not politically correct, I hate sweating so I don’t exercise, I crush on nerds, I tan. A lot. Sorry I’m not sorry.
Thanks for opening yourself up and refusing to apologize for what you do and who you are!
