The problem with #instagram
in general, is that people only post the best photos of the good things happening in their lives. Everything looks #interesting
and fun, but the #reality
is often far different.
I'm guilty of this as much as anyone!
It's so easy to look at what others are doing and become disillusioned with our own lives. If everyone else is out there having #fun
, there must be something wrong with us if we're not doing the same.
calls us to be 'in the world but not of it' a call to be different & to challenge the status quo.
So here is a post #migraine
, awake at 3am with #chronicpain
I made a yummy #pie
this evening but prior to that my greatest achievement was getting out of bed, having a shower & getting dressed.
I managed to go to #counselling
, did a minimum amount of work and then slept the day away before waking with a killer migraine. I completely forgot about filling in my #PIP
form and the other multitude of things on my urgent to do list.
I'm not sharing this to make a point about how terrible my life is compared to yours - because its actually not terrible - I'm in a pretty good place right now!
I just want you know that it's OK to not have the perfect life. That it isn't always sunshine & roses, sometimes it's rain clouds & weeds.
You don't have to pretend. ♥
Ps. You probably noticed that I used a #filter
- wasn't brave enough to go without! Being my authentic self is still a work in progress lol
