Facetuning

Facetuning

I know many girls my age who use the app called Facetune. Just the name itself is super derogatory. I don’t want to tune my face or body to fit society’s definition of beauty. I know I’m pale and my teeth aren’t as white as they can be and I have curves on my body but I will never go in and alter these things about myself. How you see me in person is how I am portrayed in my pictures. Yes, I add filters to my pictures but that is to warm or brighten them up and have my Instagram feed look uniform. However, you can also look at my pictures and potentially see acne or my belly rolls and I am totally fine with that. I keep it real in my personality in real life and I also keep it real in how I am portrayed on social media.

I am my Own Prince Charming

I am my Own Prince Charming

Picture this- that Disney princess you really love, she’s the one who kisses her prince and wakes him up from a deep sleep to rescue him from the evil villain. Can you picture it? Probably not because women are portrayed as these fragile beings who need to be rescued or saved by a man. Granted, these princess movies were filmed long ago and the times have changed but, when little girls watch these movies they believe that a guy is what they need to be “saved” or that they need to rely on a man for a stable living and they carry this idea around with them for the rest of their lives.

The Comparison Game

The Comparison Game

Recently I have found myself in a bit of the comparison game. Normally, I am super confident in myself and independent. I mind my own business and don’t think about what other people are doing or how fast they’re coming along compared to me. Comparing to other people does me no good. Everyone is on their own path and journey and it differs from person to person. However, it is so easy to compare to someone else and how more successful they are being even though you may be doing the same thing. I’ve been at this whole blogging thing for a year now and am not at as much growth as I want to be but, you know what? It’s okay. I am on my own journey, at my own pace. As long as I’m focusing on myself and my growth, good things will happen and come to me.
