We live in such a fake world. Fake bodies, fake television shows and even fake relationships (you know some of those IG relationships on the Shaderoom aren't real). It seems as if there is an underlining rule that says we must compete with who has the most perfect life...which is nobody. (GASPS) I'll be the first to admit that I have fallen for this game. I've played small and not taken chances because I wanted to protect my own comfort and empty negative opinions about my life. Take this blog and my Glow Up challenge for example. I haven't been keeping up with it and I surely haven't been blogging and making videos like I said I would. I've hid my natural hair because I was told it wasn't professional in the workplace. I've put up with toxic friendships, you name it. But last week something changed in me. I was sitting in my living room before work and reading a devotional. This one in particular discussed staying true to your center and then it hit me...is that all it really takes to feel completely free? Just stay true to yourself? Just be real? It could NOT be that easy. Oh my friend but it is.
