We all fib a little on social media and online, am I right?
Those outlets are meant to be a highlight reel. We try and get the perfect picture with the best lighting. We hide piles of junk, edit out blemishes, and most people only share pictures of things that look pretty good to begin with.
I am guilty of this too.
I think it is so easy to compare your every day, messy, regular life to someone elses altered online life. It’s not healthy because you will never measure up. Truth is though, there isn’t a person out there who doesn’t have those piles of junk somewhere in their home.
I am all for beautiful, well-lit, cultivated pictures. I love Instagram because it makes people up their photo game. It just looks pretty, and I like pretty.
But, I wanna be real today. I have been taking pictures of my home over the past few weeks when it is in a state that is in no way Instagram worthy.
Here is a little piece of my real life. Unedited. #nofilter 😉
I’m sure you can relate.
This is real life. And you know what? It’s beautiful too!
