This wasn’t on my “blogging” plans, but it is something that has been a struggle for me lately so I felt compelled to write about it. I am currently sitting in a coffee shop by myself planning out content and finding items for you all to shop and I feel this pressure to make everything perfect. Not that I don’t put everything I have into making my posts good, but the kind of perfect that then wouldn’t make my work my own because I would just be copying what every other “blogger” or “influencer” does.
I don’t consider myself either of those, I just post what I enjoy and what makes ME happy. But lately- I have had this pressure to post all the current trends, and not just the things I love. I often worry that what I am posting no one is going to care about or even want to see on their page. Those thoughts are what sometimes makes me want to quit and just continue to find other hobbies, but then I would be taking the one outlet I have that lets me escape the stressors of life (and adulting lol). I don’t know what my point is here other than to remind you all that social media ISN’T suppose to be perfect – with perfect (very) edited pictures, and the fact that everyone looks like they are experiencing so much more life than you, (aka the ones going on vacation every week). It is important to share what you LOVE and what makes YOU happy. Who cares what “they” think. Do it for you. I try to remind myself that not everyone is as judgmental as I think they are, they say the biggest critic is yourself. SO- I want my space on the internet to be a nonjudgmental, safe, and FUN place to be and I will continue to make it just that. Post that picture that you love (even if you think it isn’t “good enough”), and let’s continue to hype each other up and get rid of this “perfect” social media page stigma. I know I am guilty of this, and I still am. Do what you love to do, even if a few people don’t find it that interesting or you are afraid of judgement..thats what I am doing and I’m glad you’re here.
Here are the pictures I have wanted to post, but didn’t because I felt they weren’t “good” enough.
Love you all,
