I typically keep these short and sweet; Mostly because I'm used to posting captions, not pages. I grew up in an Instagram world. A world where post people feel as though they don' t belong. I felt this way for a while...until I found my happiness.
Now instead of seeing pretty pictures of other people's seemingly perfect lives, and wondering where I went wrong; I'm inspired. I'm driven. I know I'm capable of doing those same things. However, some of the things I simply don't want to do. I'm never going to work on a farm raising chickens and goats. I'm never going to have my own cook book. I'm never going to be a fitness model.
And that's totally okay. It's okay because I know who I am. I will take pictures of myself traveling, even though I may have struggled to save the money for that trip. I will take pictures of my cat, because she is basically the light of my life. I will take pictures of the books I read, the delicious cuisine I eat and (attempt to) cook, my friends and my family.
I'll do what I want to do. I'll be happy doing it. I'll share my happiness with others and will try my best to encourage others to do the same. We all are meant to be out authentic selves; to love and be loved. It's my mission to positively impact as many people as I can in my life. I've found there are a lot more positives to social media than people give it credit for. It brings people together. I only coach people that want to be coached; people that have the desire to live life to the fullest. It's hard to casually bring up the philosophy of life itself in the grocery store...especially during a pandemic. That's why I'm here, on this very blog. I'm hoping one of you will read this and learn something or be inspired to reach out.
We only have one life. Our feelings come and go; our perspectives shift; our circumstances change and we're left with a bundle of unknowns, highs and lows, and the people around us. The best thing we can do is band together and make the most of being human. We can learn so much from each other.
And it is absolutely beautiful.
