I read a quote lately that really resonated with me, “If they world was blind, how many people would you impress?”-Boonaa Mohammed. Have you ever read a quote that actually makes you sad, because you read it and realize you could do better, or be better? Sometimes I get so wrapped up in this world and feel like I need so many material things and so much recognition that I lose sight of all of the important things.
I started blogging because I love fashion and I love sharing my interests with others. I can sit with someone for 30 minutes and when they leave they feel like they know me. I have always been an open book. This blog is the book I am writing to anyone who wants to read it. That is why I love your comments so much, because then it really feels like we are having a conversation! Sometimes I forget why I do this and it becomes something material. It becomes all about competition, who has the most followers, etc. That isn’t why I blog!!
Do you get like this with your life? Do you get lost in all the material things in the world and forget about the important things? Does it take a quote like that to pull you back on track? Do you think you do enough to impress people even if they were blind? The quote makes me realize I need to go to church more, start my charity work up again, and help more with this blog. What do you need to do to put yourself back on track?
I had a conversation with a blogging friend recently about photoshop. They were saying how they have to photoshop all of this stuff out because they hate that part of themselves. I don’t know if you know this, but I got in a pretty bad car accident when I was 15 and have scars all over my body. If you look at the picture above closely you can see the cuts on my arm. I also have them all over my legs. I promised you guys at the beginning that I will never use photoshop, and I will always stick to that promise. No one is perfect. We all have things we are insecure. I have learned to own my scars. Why don’t we all make a pact to try to love that one part of us we have always been insecure of for ONE WEEK! Just ONE WEEK. Can you do that? Can you forget about the outer beauty and focus on your inner beauty for that long? Can we agree to forget about all the material things and think about the things that are the most important to us, the things that can be seen by a blind eye? Then we can come back here after the week is over and talk about what changed within our lives!
Thank you for letting me rant about my life and the things I struggle with. I just started my blog and it has been a wild ride so far, but I am glad you are here to experience this roller coaster with me. <3
