Good morning World,
Those who know me , know that I have multi-layers to who I am, those who know me well know that those layers are complex, interesting, frustrating and unpredictable. Those that don’t know me, have probably judged me with just one word “Crazy.”
I do have a tendency to push the envelope of what people would deem normal. If the label is “Crazy” I am okay with that.
I love to express myself, and I do that in a variety of ways, certainly with words, as an author you need to think differently, I mean come on if I am just writing about what everyone is writing about then why write? As an author my world of words is different because the voices in my head speak a foreign language, and I am talking French or Spanish verses English here, I am talking the worlds in which I create, the characters that come to life can only come from my heart, my head and my inspiration- not anyone elses.
I express myself with my photography. I don’t just take any picture, I take the picture that speaks to me. That makes me feel; and that my friend can be a complex situation in itself, for I am full of feelings, one day happy, the next day sad, angry, joyful—and yes even sometimes crazy.
I express myself when I am the “Corporate” Tilly (come on, who am I kidding, I don’t think I will ever be Corporate!)- my funky side still shines, it’s just that you might not be able to see it. Here I have mis-matched socks and a shocking green thong under that perfectly pressed business suit.
I express myself with the crazy collection of hats I own, and add “Tilly-ism’s” to my everyday life, from the art work on the walls to dressing up my dog. (Poor Moochie!)
Sometimes I get really crazy and throw paint against canvas and pretend it is art. ~smiles~
I express myself in my belief system, in my faith- some may say even my spiritual beliefs are crazy for I walk a path that isn’t straight, or the normal “standard”.
I express myself as a woman, I am not everyone’s cup of tea, more like a shot of tequila without the lemon and salt. I express myself sexually am embrace that side of me, not hide from it.
I am, who I am. I grow, I learn and try my very hardest to be a good person. I’m not always, I know when I am angry I can be the biggest bitch you ever saw.
I know my strengths and my weakness.
If this makes me crazy- than I have chosen to pick the definition of: “extremely enthusiastic”..~giggles~
Love and hugs my friends, and go ahead…let your funk out, and be who you are. Express Yourself!
