Life is too short to worry about what others thing. What society thinks you should or should not be. Once you truly are comfortable with yourself, you become an unstoppable force. You become truly, fully alive.
Amazon is full of self-help books. I am no stranger to browsing this section on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble. In the day of social media it is hard to grasp the concept that many only share what they want you to see and that tends to be all the happy and glorious things in their life. While there are those who share the good and the bad, those can be harder to find. When someone does share the bad, you might find yourself questioning the authenticity of it. It is hard to not compare your life to these influences.
I have fallen victim to this in the past and it took a while to dig myself out of that. I had to stop and take the time to appreciate all that I had accomplished and my own path in life. And now, I am taking the steps to have the life I really want. All of the things that I have dreamed of. I want to experience life and be fully alive.
Social media does not define our happiness. We do.
I fully support Hips&Curves for their #BeFullyYou campaign. I think we all need to take the time to stop, breath, and disconnect from social media every once in a while. Recharge and reconnect with life, and remember, your life may not be as fascinating as theirs might seem, but it is your own life to do with as you see fit. If you want things to change in life, start asking yourself today “will this decision help move me forward towards my goal or backwards?”
What is one thing you are doing today to get yourself closer to your own personal goal of being fully alive?
