We are all guilty of aiming for perfection.
A perfect body, perfect skin, perfect life. I’ve been stuck in this cycle for a while, hence why it’s been radio silence where this blog is concerned. I’ve been so wrapped up in trying to make myself into what I perceive a blogger to be, always putting off posting because I wasn’t happy with where and who I was and to put it bluntly, I didn’t feel good enough. Now I know that way of thinking is so damaging. No one is living perfectly everyday, we all have days where we aren’t productive, don’t work out, or don’t even get out of bed. And just because we have days like these doesn’t make the journey to our goals any less valid.
I started blogging because I wanted to change. I was ready to improve how I lived and how I viewed the world around of me, and blogging was a way of sharing that journey with anyone who wanted to read about it. And of course, I blog because (I hope) people enjoy reading what I create.
I’m making this promise here, now, to anyone reading that I won’t let negative thoughts stop me from doing what I love, and you should make that promise to yourself as well. Stop aiming for perfect, because it doesn’t exist, even if Instagram suggests otherwise. Enjoy being you, and enjoy the journey to where and who you want to be.
TL;DR: do what you love, love who you are and never give into negativity, no matter how loud it may be
