If We're Being Honest

 "Comparison is the thief of joy." Theodore Roosevelt  
Remember, when you are comparing, it is your worst to their best.  
Now, that is hardly fair.

My life is not cooler than yours.
 I edit my photos just like you do.
I also choose what and what not to share,
so does that other blogger with 180k followers.

You have value, you have your own unique talents
 and gifts to bring to the table.  We all have different gifts. 
 Life would be boring if we all were the same.  
Therefore, utilize your talents.  Don't try to be someone else.  
Develop you own talents so that you become stronger in them. 
Be the best version of you.

 It's important for social media to stay positive.  If you use it
 as a place to vent your negative, depressing, angry emotions (etc, etc)
 you might want to think about stopping.  People get tired 
of reading that all the time, so find a friend you can talk to.  That being said, 
do not for a moment think that because of a blog or a face 
book photo or a rockin' selfie, people's lives are perfect.  They're not.  
Everyone goes through things.  Their life isn't easier than yours, 
they just choose to stay positive and keep a semblance of privacy to their lives.

  1. I love this so much!! The first one was definitely an "aha!" moment for me. ;)

  2. I think that "I also choose what and what not to share" part is the most important
    Great reads =)

  3. I couldn't agree more. Seeing successful bloggers and their seemingly perfect lives can inspiring and also sometimes completely discouraging. It's great to remember that we're all human and on the flip side, that we're all super awesome and creative inside. :)

  4. I couldn't pick my favorite here... They are all so good and so true. You are fabulous friend :)
