|I'm so popular I have my own fan club|
I'm not surprised to see studies in the news lately about things like Facebook use leading to lower levels of happiness and satisfaction in life. I find that while I gain increased feelings of connection, friendship, and even self discovery through my blog, facebook, instagram, and pinterest, it does sometimes stir up feelings of jealousy, discouragement, or discontent.
|Us at our shiniest and happiest, holding hands probably, too|
|We go on amazing vacations ALL the time!|
But that is easy to forget when perusing online. I've tried to make my blog a pretty honest place. A place where I can remind myself to worry less about the image I portray to others and more about what really matters (a lesson in overcoming pride, really). A place where hopefully you can relate as other non-perfect but happy beings.
|I'm so crafty I sew ALL the time (except when I'm on vacation, of course!)|
|I'm so successful and sometimes wear a suit|
And we are awesome.
And just in case you think I'm kind of a Debbie Downer, I included some carefully selected Good Picture Monday pictures to hopefully make you feel a little insecure yourself as a way of over compensating for the past. Happy comparing! (Now, if only I had photoshop for maximum efficiency.)
|I'm in such great shape!|
|This picture was taken just the other day. Every day is like Christmas at our house!|
Thanks for indulging me (in letting me air my insecurities and my exaggerated captions today)!
