In today's world, it's quite easy to become distracted by the way people live. All we have to do is unlock our phones and click on any social media app and there we have it, photos and status updates of people living their life. Scrolling through adventurous photos and reading happy news could make you assume that some else's life is better than the one you're living. Quick confession, I too have fallen to the distraction of those adventurous photos. I'm not going to sit here and bash social media. To me, social media isn't bad at all. It's a platform to inspire and get your message out there in a matter of seconds. However, social media only becomes distracting when we allow it to. For an example, looking at awesome photos of someone else's life, and thinking that their life could be or is better than yours. When you start to think this way, stop what you're doing and make a list of everything you love about your life. Read your list over and over again until you see and feel how great your life is. I'm sure that your life is amazing. Why? Because only YOU were made to live the life you have, and that in itself makes you unique. Back to the question I asked earlier. What determines a good life for you? Let me tell you what determines a good life for me. Well, for me, it starts with spiritually knowing who I am and knowing my purpose. By knowing this alone, lifts me up making me feel good about myself. In addition to, appreciating who I am and whom I'm becoming, knowing that I am loved, understanding that I am unique (which we all are), seeing the beauty of being a painter and a creative individual, and knowing that God is holding me up through my journey in life. You are the only person who lives your life. So you might as well LOVE it! Go out there and make your life beautiful.
Thank you for reading

  4. Exactly! Social can make people a little crazy but you just have to put it in perspective. Some shots are carefully styled and edited. It's there to express a point, a feeling or a vision. it's not something to measure your self worth against.
