i like to think my life is pretty put together. sometimes it is and sometimes it just isn't. what is about life in general and especially social media that makes us feel like everything has to be perfect?!?
i have been doing a daily photo for several years. i generally try to make the prompt fit whatever i am doing that day. i try to shove all the stuff out of the way, take decent photos, edit them to look as good as possible, and unintentionally make my life look like i have it all together.
the prompt yesterday was "no filter". i'm pretty sure the prompt was talking about not filtering a photo before posting it, but it made me think a little deeper-about life. it's not very often we see a very raw picture on social media anywhere. everything is filtered and edited to present a certain image. i posted the above picture as my photo-a picture of laundry everywhere, a strand of pearls that broke all over my floor, shoes that need to be put away, bags for the recycle bin, a humidifier that i should start using again, art that never got hung up when i moved a year ago, carpet that desperately needs to be vacuumed, etc.
an unfiltered look at my life quickly shows that i am so not doing it all. i do really well at some things, and other things i am no where close. i don't have it all together by any means. sometimes it feels good to just let people know that things aren't always what they seem.
please tell me i'm not the only one that feels this way...
