Cards on the Table

It was actually the man I love that came up with that title. So credit to him this time around. After all, he knows me better than most. I’m working on changing that. Perhaps this is the first step. Today I’m opening up a bit more, and telling you all the story of Daydreams, the only way I know how.

Face to face.

 

I had to look some of you in the eyes when I told you that she is somewhat a figment of mine and your imagination.

Now by me saying this, I am not simply tossing out anything I ever told you as falsehood.

No, that is far from the truth.

The truth is, I wanted to be able to share the better parts of me without my bitter or broken parts dragging you down.

She is merely my internet persona – or better yet, my writing voice. When I speak to you as I’m speaking now, I am largely being myself, but I am in-character. You can tell the difference between me (J, that’s as much as I can tell you about my name for now. You’ll see me credited in some places as J.W or J. Weston.) and Daydreams by how we speak. Daydreams is bubbly and fun, and well, I am real; flawed. You can find it in these videos sometimes stumbling or being my dorky, awkward self.

I’m sure you will have many questions. I’ll answer them all to the best of my ability.

OR

You can save them for the Q&As we’ll be doing next week. 😉

  1. You weren’t awkward at all; just honest. I think it’s perfectly okay to present a persona (and in some cases safer) and I suspect many bloggers do show the best of themselves, intentionally or not. That doesn’t make them any less genuine.

    Sure, it takes courage to share the rough with the smooth, but your own take on it, your voice, comes across either way. I’m just grateful for the opportunity to celebrate your highs and offer support during the lows. Keep dreaming x

    1. Thank you for understanding, Dan. That’s all I ever wanted to do was just make people happy & be understood. A tall order perhaps, these days, but I have to try.

      I got sick of some making snap judgements based of off tiny details about someone they didn’t even truly know. They only thought they knew me.
