Karlacosmetica; Better Than Coffee



June 5th, 2015

I’ve written a whole bunch of bullshit (let’s call a spade a spade) about change, adapting etc and so forth.

But here’s the truth – as much as I think and I pride myself on the fact that I’m pretty damn adaptable and can shape shift in accordance to my surrounding, I in fact can not.

I struggle with it, and I’ll struggle with it for months. I’ll find myself taking the baby steps to adapt, get into a rut and then revert back to comfort; plainly because I don’t want to face it – the reality, fear whatever.

Close friends of mine described me as being like water.

Let’s talk about why I blog. Why put it out on such a public forum where people are able to scrutinize my writing and why allow them into the wonderful world of confusion that is my mind.

Basically, from way back when, the reason to why I blog was because I found writing was the best platform for me to express my thoughts and feelings.

The words just seem to spill out effortlessly, and everything made more sense when I would write/type it out. It was so easy to explain how I felt through the written word than verbally. READ MORE
