By  | 

As a blogger, maintaining fresh content while keeping up with all of the fabulous writers online can be quite challenging.  Although it’s a bit of a juggling act, there are a few blogs that I follow regularly and Melinda Lewis’ Get Togetha definitely tops my list. Get Togetha inspires us to live our very best lifestyle by helping us surround ourselves with the things we absolutely love: stylish home decor finds and interior design inspiration.

It means dealing with unsupportive friends and family members who aren’t emotionally invested in seeing you do well. It means getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. You’ll feel like a cat dipped in water. It means believing in yourself when no one cares.

A lot. It means marrying a business plan… only to divorce it. It means dealing with legalities when you rather be waterboarding. It means sleepless nights and wearing blinders.

There’s lots of bad advice out there. It means having a very bad day to a very bad week. It means rejection. Why Yes. No one cares about how smart you think you are. It means constantly evaluating your self worth. Oh wait. After you get over yourself then maybe you can squeeze in good workout, watch a good movie, have sex, and not have your head spin on its own axis…
