Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, VSCO, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest- it’s all I’ve been doing this week!
I’ve been home a lot this week from the weather here in New England and all I’ve done is been on my phone. I’m constantly on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr etc. Since when did my phone and social media account become so important to me and take over my life? The simple answer, when society said that it was more important to be on my phone/social media than to actually experience life.
So yesterday, I tried an experiment. How much could I accomplish when I only went on social media once every 3 hours… my results turned out pretty spectacular.
Yesterday I was able to:
clean my bathroom
clean out my closet
write this blog post
enjoy dinner with my family
go outside in the snow with my dog
do some yoga with my mom
relax and rejuvenate my skin/hair
In other words, I was really productive! Instead of looking relentlessly at a screen filled with people’s “perfect lives”, I was able to get some things done to improve my life. Yes, it’s hard not to go on Instagram and Twitter every 5 minutes, but why be a slug, when you can get stuff done!
I hope this was helpful and will inspire you to get off your phone and go to do more of which makes you happy!
Part of my New Years Resolution is to be a better me. I don’t want to change myself for others or to make others like me, I’m doing this for me. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and how important it is to make yourself happy in your own skin. You come into this world as your pure self and as you get older, you begin to lose yourself in the stereotypes, trends and what you’re told to be. I’m going to go back to that; my true self through being unapologetically me. Here’s some info if you think you need a change too. What does this mean? Honestly, it can mean whatever you want, it’s your own definition. Whatever makes you happy, makes you love life, and what makes you,you. It’s ultimately living life in a way that makes you happy.
Well, how do I know what makes me, me? What makes you, you is the way you smile at a joke that your dad tells, the books you read, the music you listen to, how you hold yourself. You are you and you have to decide yourself what will make you unapologetically you.
Does this mean that you can’t help others? Hell no! We need to be there for each other! In this world that we live in, being there for others and helping those in need is so important. It can ultimately help you shape the “unapologetically me” you.
I’m using this motto to make myself happy and to become the best version of me. I don’t want to let people walk all over me, I want to do yoga, I want to help people in need, I want to do makeup and be involved in the beauty/fashion industry. And I’m not letting anyone stop me.
Good luck beauty babes.
