**long post alert**
Happy national selfie day from the girl who hardly ever takes selfies 😂 I think I can count on one hand how many I've taken this year, just ask @orale_vincente.
I suppose in a way, I've never wanted to find my identity in it. There's so much more to me that I want you to see, so many facets. My adventuresome side, my creative side, my giving side. I want my face, my waist size, everything you physically see to be the least interesting thing about me. After all, time is just chasing us all, and will take away all that. Why waste my time finding value in just what I look like? I want to find value in your bravery, genious, and confidence. I want the world to praise you for your uniqueness, your persistence, your patience and kindness, all the beautiful things that make you who you are. I guess that's also why I struggle with social media in general anyway now a days. A photo you see is a single millisecond of that person's life. While having a photo memiore is a beautiful and intriguing thing to show the world, it's hard for me to share my everyday moments. I find myself sitting outside in my yard enjoying a beer (like I am now, but usually with my phone out of sight), or walking #mykahbaby
, or strolling downtown, or just enjoying the company of friends, and that I truly find more value in those moments than the ones scrolling through my feed on my couch.
I show you my moments because I want you to see what adventure is out there, but I also hold back because the adventure is yours to go on yourself, not to follow in some persons footsteps, or instastory.
Fall in love with you, with who you are beneath the inches of waistline, stretch marks and flab. Fall in love with your attributes, not your face, and fall in love with life, YOUR life.
I finally did, and I'm loving the journey 💋💋💋
