Just Me-My Own Unique Self

"Remember, no one can make you feel inferior without your consent."

Eleanor Roosevelt

Just be your one of a kind self!

I love, love looking at blogs. There are so many amazing, beautiful, and inspiring blogs out there. I could spend hours looking at blogs.

I know we tend to compare our blogs to other blogs, and somehow we manage always to find them lacking. But that generally makes us work a bit harder and look for ways to improve our blogs.

But after looking at so many blogs of beautiful happy people, we can start to feel inferior about ourselves. Wow, they are so successful and so accomplished. We're looking at photos that are worthy of fashion magazines. Or Home design magazines.

If I used photos of myself, many of them would have me in sweats with no makeup and not looking perfect.

Am I the only one who starts looking around my surroundings, wondering what I am doing wrong. And that's when we have to STOP. We are not doing anything wrong! What we are doing is living our life. Yes, you are living YOUR life.

Everyone's life should be unique. Do we want to be carbon copies of someone else?

I look at those perfect pictures and sometimes think it must be very tiring, always being so perfect. It has to take a lot of time. I am too lazy to be perfect. But they look so nice.

Logically, we know that most of the people we are so in awe of are just like the rest of us. I mean, is anyone perfect at every step of their day or their life? They must have days of imperfection. What is it they say? Nobody's Perfect.

I am okay with being me. Some days I have makeup on, and some days I don't. Some days my house is neat and tidy, and some days, it's not. I occasionally dress up, but mostly, I am in jeans or sweats. That's just the way I am.

I will probably still compare my blog to someone else's blog, even though I am getting better about it. And yes, I will enjoy those blogs that feature beautiful people and beautiful places. But I will remember that I like myself just the way I am. And will admire them for being themselves.

We could spend all our time comparing ourselves to others, but why? We are our own unique one of a kind, fabulous person. And we shouldn't ever forget that.

"Nobody is superior, Nobody is inferior, but Nobody is equal either. People are simply unique, incomparable. You are you. I am I."

I use to cringe at the thought of inviting people into MY world. That's what it felt like, my own escape from reality when nobody is watching. After dissecting the thought I felt selfish. But it's safe to say I'm just me. Do you have a email to connect with my social blog and network community?

I think it's hard not to compare yourself and your content to others, but you just have to remember to not take their work as a negative towards what you are producing. Just because you like their pictures or posts, doesn't mean that yours are bad. Everyone and their content are special and unique int their own way.

Hi Cheryl! I love looking at blogs too - but I focus more on design and layout ideas and all of the creative things people do. I love the variety! Yes, sometimes I get caught up in the green monster, but not often. We ARE all special, and we ARE all wonderful in our own ways. I am glad you are you!

P.S. I've made it a point every couple of weeks to post a picture of me on Instagram with no makeup, hair unbrushed, etc. just to remind myself that real is good! It helps!
