Don't get me wrong…I love looking at lithe young sexy things with flawless skin and shiny hair. Who doesn't? They often have interesting creative ideas on clothing and how to wear it.
However, I do find that when I binge on these type of blogs it leaves me with a poor self image and a bit depressed. Like when I eat a whole bag of potato chips. I know I shouldn't have done it, but I did it anyways and now I feel like crap.
To compensate I turn to my peers, the slightly more life-experienced bloggers. The ones who have been there, done that more than twice and know what they are talking about. Like Bella…
You know the ones I mean, intelligent, witty but with real substance for your brain to chew on. Like Jan.
The ones that have enough perspective on themselves and their lives to let it all hang out. Like Sky.
The kind you think you'd like to hang out with and get tipsy over a bottle or two. Like Melanie.
The kind you think you'd let borrow your new shoes because they would know how to take care of them. Like Patti
The kind that own their choices and accept, nay celebrate themselves as they age. Like Vix.
The kind that isn't afraid of speaking their mind. Like Gabriala.
The kind with a positive outlook and vibrant energy that don't take themselves too seriously. Like Tamera.
The kind that always seems to know just the right things to say to make the day a little bit brighter. Like Sue.
The kind that just makes you laugh no matter what. Like Shan.
The kind that makes you reflect with gratitude on the smallest details that often pass us by. Like Tamera.
The kind that can weave a great tale out of a thrifted skirt that makes you laugh out loud. Like Val.
The kind that'd knows all the best places to travel, and can still be stylish despite lost luggage. Like Heather.
And many others that I haven't mentioned here. The list is growing daily.
There are certain things that only time and experience can afford.
That is why I love Bloggers Over 40.
