I know this blog post is about 7 hours late (I usually try to post by noon every day,) but I have been out of work for the past day and a half because of ice. Let me tell you something, I have been so lazy, and it has been absolutely glorious! I’ve had some snow cream, cuddled with my dog for hours on end, watched day time TV, and put the Keurig to use. I’ve had the best time.
Last night, I finally decided to post a “My Real Selfie” on instagram! When I saw Carly, aka College Prepster, post about it , I felt like it was something that I should do. And then when my friend Katelyn from Southern Samplings posted about it, I felt even more compelled to follow suit. If you read my post about confidence and appearances, you would know that confidence is always something that I have struggled with. I am so happy with my life, probably the happiest I have ever been, and I hope that radiates from me. But some days, I feel like I look like a troll that belongs in a parable. That is exactly why I felt like it was so important to do it! Remember, this year I am all about being uncomfortable!
So I challenged myself to do so before my 23rd birthday, now 19 days away, and last night, I finally followed through! And to my surprise, people were so so kind! Within in hour I had 12 comments & 84 likes… Wow! I received likes from people I didn’t even know, which I think is pretty cool because that means people have been checking out the hashtag on Instagram! I would love it if y’all would post some “Real Selfies” as well! I’ll be checking!
With that being said, I am on to a new challenge for myself! I want to do a “24 before 24” list, so a list of things that I need to do between my 23rd birthday and my 24th birthday. I would love to have some suggestions from y’all cause I literally have nothing on my list.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Stay warm!
