Big, Big, Big, Me, Me, Me!

Sometimes I am over the top. I think I can do anything! I have an opinion on everything! I think I can overcome anything. I think I can love anyone. I think I can live they way I want. I have huge ideas, and I think I know a little something about everything. I usually get humbled by people around me. Not because they prove me wrong about what I can do, what I know, what I can overcome, and my opinions. It's usually because they can't stop me. I've had people to just go away from me because the me in me was just too BIG! I know it can be too much for some sometimes, but I can't be small because it will make others feel better.

My husband is the only one who has stayed around this long (outside of my immediate family). That's because he is a visionary and is amused and delighted by my bigness. Why am I saying all this now... because my closest friend besides my husband has me on silence. I can't think of anything that I've done besides being my BIG self. I can't stop being me. I love being me. I show up in everything I do and I am proud of that. Right now I feel a little humbled and awkward because I have been misunderstood and underappreciated, but it won't stop me from being me...


Here are some over the top earrings I created last night. I know they are big and long and showy, but that's me! Love me or leave me!

We come in all sizes, these egos are an intriguing thing. I've tried my fair share and you know what, just like everything else there is no such thing as one size fits all. Have your BIG and love it, you wear it well!

(PS As I am commenting one of my girlfriends is ringing my phone and I ain't messing with her today. She's been on my last damn nerve since last week-but I still love her, and so does your friend)

Those earrings are ser.i.ous business. Nice piece for someone (ahem ME) with a long lean neck!

One day I'll resume my jewelry wearing ways, I promise.

Don't worry about the box that others live in. You can't let them pull you in there when you have already broken out of yours! Keep on keepin' on. Does that sound familiar? =)

Lovin' those earrings too. I can just see them on the ears of a lady who rocks a fly short hair cut ;)

the earrings are fab.

and you and your BIG self seem just fine to me. others just have to deal with it.

"...but I can't be small because it will make others feel better."

exactly the same thought i have from time to time when coming in contact with certain folk.

The earrings are really nice. I likey. Of course you shouldn't change your personality for people be you. Have you talked to your friend or are you going to wait it out?

@T.allen-mercado, oh is it my ego:0 I'm just kidding I knew that.

@Ms. bar b great boomerang! Thanks I needed that.

@ at Dori & Fly Tie thanks for understanding.

@Denene, yes "Ima dooo me"

@Renee I'm gonna wait it out. The last thing she said to me before she put me on mute was "I'm gonna call you back," so I'm still waiting for that call, I think it's been about 2 months."

Folk can either like it, love it or just get the hell on. Either way, don't let it stop you from doin' or bein' you!

Lovin' the earrings...Those are hot!! :-)
