Thanks Jen for sharing The 16 Worst Types of Selfies. The article was hilarious!!!! — mainly because I’ve done most of them. Smart phones have made all of us a little full of ourselves. I remember thinking on vacation, “I have to share this on Instagram! But, why???” Is it just sharing the memories? Is it Look at me!! I’m doing cool things!? Is it My life is better than yours!? And, why do I have to take a picture whenever I have on a cute outfit? Who am I trying to impress? Does the world have to see my new nail color? Do you have to see the sweat drip off my face and know that I just got in a great workout? Is it really just for the blog?
We all do it to some degree. And, I guess it does inspire somebody, somewhere. But, I think it’s more to pump up our heads than we admit. It all says, “LOOK AT ME!!!” My dinner plate looks like Chef Emerald’s, my closet’s huge, my yard is manicured, my makeup is flawless, my car is expensive, I’m jet-setting here and there and everywhere, my life is great.
I do it, too, so I’m not knocking you.
I just believe that at the end of the day, the life I portray on IG and FB and T…Twitter, will mean nothing if my real life is lacking. I’m not telling you to post your overdue bills on IG. I’m simply saying to go out and create the life you dream of living. You have the power to do that. And, no one’s stopping you but you.
In the meantime, here are me and some of my shameless selfies!
Have a great one, ladies!
