behind the labyl

My blog’s title is labyless. If your having trouble pronouncing it, it’s  “label-less”.  I just think things look neater with a ‘Y’ in them. I didn’t want to name my blog anything that I might find creatively constricting but at the same time didn’t want something so vague as to have no meaning at all.  I wasn’t even sure I wanted to use my own name, so I came up with labyless.

It probably doesn’t make any sense to anyone else and that’s fine with me.  I’m writing about it because it does reflect some of my values and those I do want to share.

I have always labeled things in my life; relationships, types of people, lifestyles.  I didn’t do it maliciously it was just what I was taught. As I’ve grown I came to realize that we don’t fit into categories. That I do not fit into a category.

I’ve realized that relationships are living things, constantly moving and changing. What you start with is rarely what you end up with.

People and their personalities are fluid as everyone has new experiences which can change them.

Lifestyle choices should come from the smorgasbord of all our cultures have to offer and not just the frozen food section; prepacked and ready in 20 mins. or less.

I also felt the name was fitting because I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to write about here in my little space.  Calling my blog “Jo’s stories” would have limited my randomness.  Calling it “Random” might have made me hesitate about writing about anything serious.

Defining Intangibles is the ultimate goal I came up with.  I have so many thoughts running through my head that make me feel so many different things that I really needed a space to write them down and work them out for myself.

I’m a woman & a girl.  I like meat & my veggies. Coffee is the best thing ever. I’m spiritual but not really religious. I’m strong & a little scared.

Welcome to my site!
