What you see is what IT IS!
I read a soul blog this weekend that reminded me of my posts back in the day before I started fashion blogging.
Even though the blog itself impacted me, one of the comments REALLY caught my attention.
The commenter's main premise was the "Photo-Shopped Life."
People who create these lives that seem too good to be true.
People who portray their lives to be a certain way to try to cover up who they really are...like who they really are is not good enough.
People who use their blog as a vehicle to outdo the next person, when really, they and the people they are competing against are all doing the SAME THING...Maybe different versions...But, the same idea.
My life is not perfect.
It's actually a process...Events strategically pieced together to grow me and propel me to the next level.
But, it wouldn't be my life if it didn't involve struggle...if it didn't involve growth...if it didn't involve things that were uniquely defined by and created for me.
The things that the commenter said were humbling.
They reminded me to remember why I put myself out there like I do.
It's not for the acknowledgement I get...It's for me.
Any other person that notices is icing on the cake.
