Do you ever truly stop and evaluate your life? Not monetarily, but how you live day by day.
Not by Facebook or Instagram standards either. That’s the complete world of fakeness!
What is the inner you? If there were no social media would you be ok with yourself?! How you treat people, do you do things just to make a “post”. Do you think the world is truly that interested in you? I have had to ask myself these questions also. If we really knew how little people think about us once they scroll past that picture that took us 20 shots and 10 filters to get, we may not waste so much time doing it.
I just want to be the best ME I can be without comparing myself to others or trying to live up to the wonderful world of photoshop (not that there is anything wrong with that 😂) and superficial people that are only there when you are doing something for them.
This is not a blog aimed at anyone. I don’t really even know why I created this article. I was deleting pictures off my phone and was thinking how most of them don’t even portray the true me. And that was sad! Of course, I want to look my best, I love my makeup to be on point and my hair to be perfection, just like most girls. And being in the beauty industry for over 27 years definitely has its pressures. But where are the silly pictures without filters, the nature pictures, because I love that kind of stuff. I don’t think it’s wrong to take those serious, “sexy” pictures, there just needs to be a BALANCE. My own pictures showed me I had lost that.
I know I’m not the only person that has struggled with my self image, which is why I feel we do some of these things. With talking one on one with so many people over the years, you realize everyone struggles with something different but equally important. (And yes, one day there will be a book SERIES on all of the “therapy” sessions. Names changed of course, to protect the “innocent”. lol).
I guess my challenge to you is, pause in life and analyze yourself. Are you doing things for yourself or for what you think other people want you to do or be? When you do something for someone, are you doing it to get something in return, for recognition or just because…? One thing I learned early in life, when you do something for someone, you don’t have to tell every one else of your good “deed”. Do it, move on, never hold it over someone’s head, and don’t tell other people. (I could write a complete book on this alone lol)
So are you good with you? Are you happy with who you truly are, do you even know who you really are? If not, maybe it’s time to figure it out. Without comparing yourself to any one. Just figure out YOU!
We are all uniquely and wonderfully made. Celebrate YOU, do things just because it’s the right thing to do, ENJOY moments, make memories, become the absolute best version of YOU!
