Often when talking about social media people reference 'highlight reels’. This is where people only upload the BEST parts of their lives on social media and are sometimes criticised for not showing all “real” aspects of their life. I don't necessarily think highlighting happiness is a bad thing, it nice to have positive memories and share your favourite parts of your life. For people on the outside looking in though, this is often misinterpreted and believed that people's lives are perfect, and sometimes this makes us questions “why isn’t my life like that?” I thought it would be nice to give you an example about me. I have had an absolutely amazing start to 2017 and feel so blessed at the opportunities I have to travel the world with my career, that I am so passionate about. I have been book touring to 3 countries already, more than 10 cities and met so many beautiful women from the #bbgcommunityand that makes me smile each day.
In between those photos and those amazing opportunities are other aspects of my life that aren’t always seen -such as missing my family and friends, lack of sleep, crossing multiple time zones, living in and out of suitcases etc. I am not looking for any sympathy at all, because I love what I do, and believe I’m so blessed to have these opportunities. What WE ALL need to do is remember that everyone on social media whether 100 or 100 million fans, like everyone else you follow, is a REAL person. We all have days where we eat bad food, as women we all get our period and stay in bed, we get sick and take days off work, we get pimples, get angry, upset, anxious, frustrated. We all are fighting our own battles. But usually none of that is shared.
So if you ever ask yourself “why isn’t my life like that?”, instead why don’t you ask, “how do I make my life happier?” Instead of idolising a person who YOU THINK has a perfect life or perfect things….. lets focus on making YOUR life a happy story, you would be proud to tell. Realise that there are no super humans in this world. There's only us. So let's support each other in our journeys but at the same time, be grateful and appreciative for what WE have in OUR lives. www.kaylaitsines.com/app
