A Conversation With My Previous Self

A Conversation With My Previous Self

This is the worst SEO post probably ever written. But this isn't for them. This post is for the peeps who've been with me along the way. You guys are amazing.

I was talking to a coworker about how long I'd been tweeting and mentioned that @AccidentallySxy was my second account. This turned into scrolling through my old tweets, which was like visiting a museum or a house that had been left in a hurry. Everything is still in place as if someone could still live there, but it's vacant.

In 2009, I was dealing a very emotionally destructive relationship. I was trying to come to terms with my new found public spotlight from #50Fests and starting Accidentally Sexy. I was going through spurts of feeling "dead inside" from a trust that seemed to be endlessly pillaged to feeling hopelessly optimistic.

I was very excited about all the amazing opportunities that were starting to happen and then, just as now, I am so thankful to all of you for being part of that.

I hated wearing pants. And I love wearing short skirts. Like I said. Not much has changed. At all.

Most of all, I was listening to a lot of music. It has always been music that will bring me out of any mood and looking brightly forward. Listen to the songs I was tweeting about in 2009 here.

Looking back has been like a type of time capsule. And it's making it very, very clear that I need to address some of these relationship slip-ups that keep appearing. Namely, allowing myself to become involved with men who need a lot of ego stroking and who have serious issues with relationships on their own end. I was and have been allowing myself to tread water with guys who are pushing my head under the surface rather than trying to keep me afloat.

I've pulled some witty tweets and some poignant ones. Most of all, I've had a rare opportunity to look back at myself. For good and bad, I've not really changed much. Realizing that is the first step.

There's the amazingly bizarre run-ins for which I am a magnet:
