I confess 
that I have been listening to the 
Grease Live soundtrack non-stop.
It just makes me smile.

I confess
that I'm loving the warmer weather
but everyday I feel like I have nothing to wear.

I confess
that I got a new band for my watch and
it's like having a brand new watch.
I'm loving it so much, that I can't stop wearing it.

I confess 
that I always try to respond to comments.
Sometimes, it takes me a few days but I try hard to respond 
as soon as I have a few free minutes. I do find it a bit disheartening when 
you comment on someone's blog and they don't respond. like at all.

I confess
that sometimes my fear of the unknown holds me back.
An opportunity was lost because I was too scared to take a risk.
My fear literally held me back and I lost out.
It has been bothering me ever since.
Then the other day, I was perusing Pinterest and saw this quote.
Fear will no longer hold me back.
I confess
that I have been trying to speak more softly.
Someone in my office complained that I'm to loud.
 Now that I'm aware of it, I have been trying really hard
not to speak to loud. But now, everyone is like is everything ok??
Are you sick??
Why do you sound like that??
Are you sure everything is ok with you??

Those are my confessions this week.

What are your confessions??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

  1. I feel ya about blog comments and never receiving responses. Granted, some comments don't need a response. And, I'm not expecting one everytime. But, if I've commented on a blog multiple times and try to interact with answering questions and/or asking pertinent questions...but I hear nothing in return, chances are, I'm not going to be interested in that blog anymore.

    In December, I had a customer "shush" me and tell me I was too loud. Girrrlllll...I almost went off. Instead, I almost started to cry. Emotional much?

    Happy humpday!

  2. I always love your confessions Marie! I admit I am so in love with that grease soundtrack it literally makes me want to dance and it just makes you smile such a big smile! Yes I totally know what you mean girl a lot of times I'll comment on a bigger name blog and you know they started out small too and they never comment back or say anything on mine or anything it's like oh I'm a big blogger now no need to engage that makes me just not want to read them anymore. I consider fellow bloggers my friends and I love commenting especially on sweet blogs like yours! Have a wonderful day sweet pea

  3. Love your new watch band! I know how you feel about having nothing to wear for this in between weather!

  4. Fun wrap watch! I am such a loud talker too... It's pretty funny you're trying to speak softer and everyone's wondering whats wrong. Ha

  5. I swear it's something about spring and warmer weather that makes us want to shop. Out with the old, in with the new or something. I am going to need to be restrained! I should start making social plans and around-the-house plans so I have less opportunity to go out and buy new books, and clothes... etc. EEK! hehe I'm sorry about the opportunity! Fear can be so tough. I really love this quote, and now that you have it in mind... I think it will be easier to pursue your opportunities in the future! I totally agree on blog commenting! Ever once in a while, I lose one to Disqus and find it like 3 months later! Oh no! LOL. So I return it ASAP, and I always hop over to visit other people's blogs! :) It's not very social or fun if no one comments/responds! :P Ugh, work. I'm pretty over work right now. Sorry about the double standard thing. : / XO - Alexandra

  7. What a fabulous new band, it looks wonderful on you. And that quote is perfection, I think it is perfect for life. We must face our fears and move forward :)! I'm cheering you on.

  8. Oh I love the Grease soundtrack! Such great music. Totally agree on having nothing to wear. I love these warmer temperatures, but I'm having such a hard time finding things to wear in my closet!

  9. I am so excited about the warmer weather, and I feel like the older I get, the more I enjoy each season as it happens. I haven't checked out the Grease soundtrack, but I will have to now that you have said that you love it!

  10. Loving this warmer weather too!! So pumped to pack away my heavy coats!

  11. oh my gosh on the speaking softly thing. i am a loud talker and i'm kinda not going to change for anyone. ok i try to be aware of my surroundings haha. the fear quote is SO good.

  12. Oh my gosh dying over the people in your really can't win!! I'm loving your new band for your watch and that gorgeous ring too! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  13. The new watch band is so pretty and goes well with your ring. LOL @ #cantwin but that's unfortunate.

  14. I always think I can do the choreographed dance from Grease but I only remember like 2 things! That watch bad is really pretty, I like it a lot!

  15. Loving your new watch band, so pretty! LOL at the people in your office, do people like that not understand where office humor/memes come from?! It's them!

  16. The changing seasons always make me feel like I have nothing to wear too! I guess that means that it's time to go shopping!

  17. I love your ring! You definitely can't please people...everyone is going to have something to say. I am totally with you on the thing I am trying to be better about. Although sometimes I struggle with realizing if the fear is one I should heed by, or if I should just go for it!

  18. hahaha I have a tendency of talking loud sometimes too. I am conscious of my voice level at work but at home or out sometimes I get excited and talk loudly. Chris likes to remind me that I am too loud sometimes. I think it is the northerner in me. I like your new watch!!!

  19. I confess that I went out and bought 5 3/4 lightweight sweaters last night because I couldn't find anything for the in-between weather! My fear of the unknown totally holds me back too. Not something I'm proud of, but something I'm definitely trying to work on. I love wraparound watch bands! It's like wearing a bracelet but also useful. Happy Hump Day!

  20. that bitch in the office who said you're too loud? F*ck them. you do what you want. someone once said that to me and i straight up told them to GFTO. if they don't like it, then walk away.

  21. Grease Live was SO good! I don't blame you for listening to it non-stop!

  22. I'm the same way with blog comments, I get there eventually haha! And I've been wanting to buy all the spring clothes lately!

  23. I take FOREVER to respond to comments and blogs but I normally I do get around to it!

    Gorgeous new watch! Love it!

  24. i am bad about responding to those emails with comments. if i get a "great post" it really doesn't warrant a response. i swear the only ppl that ask me questions are the ones that are no reply! lol

  25. Grease Live was so fantastic, now I'm totally in the mood to watch it again!

  26. The new band makes your watch look great! How cool!

    I've had fear hold me back in the past too so I totally get that. Sorry you are dealing with that, but I'm glad you found inspiration to not let it hold you back next time!

    And girl, I'm with you on the comments thing. I'm sooo slow at responding sometimes, but every comment left on my blog is so important to me! I so appreciate the time each person took to say "hey, I hear you and I'm with you" when they respond to my blog. :)


Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you!
