don’t even ask, haha some of these pictures are as awkward as they come, aaannndd I’m okay with it! things are about to get real. like, really really real. so sorry folks if you don’t care, and are only here for the clothes — you can skip this rant I’m about to give.
I’m not a perfect person.
(spoiler alert – nobody is) 😉
because of that I have my good days and my bad moments. something else we all need to know is that most people (including myself) don’t want the bad, sad, disappointing, frustrating, tired, sick, upsetting, etc. moments to be blown up on the big screen for the world to see. BUT we all have those moments!
you see, I forget that. I forget that what I’m seeing in pictures isn’t somebody’s whole life. I’m only seeing what they want me to see. marriages aren’t perfect, kids aren’t perfect, work isn’t perfect, the fancy ladies wear sweats too 😉 and there’s a lot of blood, sweat and tears behind the scenes. unfortunately, I get caught up in it.
the other day I was having a really bad day, probably a mix of ‘girl time’ hormones and stress and a thought crossed my mind as I did my makeup and was thinking the worst things about myself.
so imagine you’re talking with your husband, mom, sister or even girlfriends and a girl were to walk in the room … would you say things like “ew, your hair is the ugliest I’ve ever seen”, “you’re a horrible mom and you don’t have it all together”, “geez, all you wear is jeans and you look stupid”, “how come you don’t have dinner ready for your husband every night, don’t you think he deserves it?” I could come up with zillions of mean comments or questions for this girl, all negative and putting her down … what if I told you that girl that walked in, was yourself.
why are we the biggest bullies to ourselves?? what did that poor girl do to deserve such negative judgements?!
it needs to stop.
it’s a battle daily to look in the mirror and not find a flaw, or to stop the comparisons, but I challenge us all to do it 🙂 we’ll be happier in our homes, marriages, and finally feel like we can start living our own lives! we are important and we deserve to love ourselves. we shouldn’t think of our worth based on how many likes we get or if we’re better than somebody else.
I’m a goof. I really sort of hate pretending to be a model so I can have this “style” blog, even though some days get really hard, it all comes down to being me, and not trying to be like anyone else, my blog has brought joy but also frustration, and only when I’ve compared my journey has it torn me up.
one of my favorite quotes is “a flower doesn’t think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms” I love this because each one of us has talents and we are unique enough that we’re all equal. no one of us is better than the other. there’s room enough for all of us to share our talents in this life.
so I’ll just be here doin’ my thing and if you like it, stick around 🙂 I’m happy to have you!
