Looks Are Deceiving

We’re not seeing the full picture. I’ve been thinking about social media a lot lately. How we’re only seeing part of someone’s story. Yet, how easily it can evoke feelings of jealousy, comparison, inadequacy, competitiveness, fear and so much more. I like to use Social media as a tool for my business and yes, share moments of my personal life. Keyword, MOMENTS. You’re only seeing “the highlight reel” as my brilliant friend, Kate Fagan calls it. For the most part, I’m posting thoughts to inspire others and hopefully let you know; you’re not alone on this wild journey called, LIFE. I do my best to keep it real.
