In the past week Facebook has sent me several photo memories. They made me so happy to see. They were good memories of fun times with friends and family. I wanted to publish all of them because they are such an awesome collection of memories, but I don’t want to be one of those people of FB who are constantly sharing, and publishing, and liking everything. They are so annoying. That’s not me.
Life is not all about me.
It also got me thinking of the reason I left FB several years ago. All you see are the best of people who have amazing adventurous lives and are the worlds best parents. Lets be honest that certainly is not my life, I mean there are moments for sure, but all the time, not so much. So all the other people are either in the same boat as I am OR they are totally amazing people who make me gag. And I know they aren’t all awesome and amazing so we must be sharing the boat.
So, is it good or bad to show only positive moment?
My life is a collections of wonderful happy memories but it is also a lot else, but I don’t share that in pictures, “just” words, and most people are more interested these days in pictures. Should I share things that aren’t always beautiful but are me, with no filters. The other day I took a picture of myself after running in the humidity of the South and sent it to only the lucky few.
Who wants to see that? The answer is no one. Thats gross, not beautiful. But I did send it to friends because I thought it was humorous.
Humor is one of those things that is the absolutely most beautiful things to me. My husband is super cute, but when I think back to the night we met and some of my favorite times it is because he made me laugh.
In my eyes, humor goes a long way. It obviously makes you funny, but also it makes you real. You joke about things that are really happening, not all the fluffy shinny pretty moments. The times that are real and that you need to laugh through. Like being super disgusting on a run or when your kids have tantrums or when you have to do a million things as a mother but unfortunately you also have to go to the bathroom. Humor is the best of thing.
In the end, I think I will post a picture or two that is funny and not always pretty. Because that is who I am. And I’m a winner, people like me. LOL (literally)!
Here I am.
No filter, gross, smelly, and dirty. Because life is real and not always FB pretty, but hard and funny for sure.
New goal: Don’t take myself so seriously
