It has been a little while since I’ve posted on my blog and that has mostly been due to a lack of significant ideas and a busy schedule. However, my boyfriend and I will be taking pictures tomorrow afternoon and I will have a lovely blog post up this Monday. It will be a clothing post, followed by a makeup post, and that suceeded by a lifestyle post as usual. I deeply care about my content and want to update regularly, but I do see these more personal posts happening in the future.
I wanted to talk about an issue I go through, so I know other young girls go through this too. It is the feeling of not living up to expectations, or wondering how that girl stays perfect while you can hardly get dressed in the morning. I finally put my mind to ease on these thoughts, and figured I should share what I did to keep me confident.
First of all, every girl has days they don’t dress up, or put makeup on, and no girl sticks to her oh so hipster nighttime routine on the daily. That’s a part of life. I post about fashion and makeup but if you caught me at my 8:00 a.m. class you would never know I run a blog. So give yourself a break.
Secondly, being a girl is hard (and don’t let anyone tell you it is). But the that doesn’t mean we let our obstacles derail us. People will compete with you, insult you, threaten, and provoke you but being a women is a weapon on itself.
Third, beauty doesn’t exist. What’s pretty to one is ugly to the other. Trying to fit everyone’s definition of pretty is exhausting and a waste of time. Don’t worry about being beautiful, worry about being you.
I maintain this blog because it’s fun. I hope people find joy in reading it. Do everything in life with a fun heart. I don’t know if this post helped anyone today, but I did want to be active and share something with the people who do keep up with my blog. Keep your head up, ain’t nobody gonna tear you down.
