while scanning through my daily feed on instagram, i came across this quote and it literally changed everything for me.
in this world of online, it's so easy to create a life that looks so good, even if it isn't. i remember a blog post i read about how a day in the life of a mom really went and that her facebook updates told otherwise. it's so true! we strive to make our lives seem so beautiful and yeah, maybe it is beautiful even in the chaos; but rather than striving to make it look good, you should strive to make it feel good too! because all that beautifulness is not just on the surface, it's a feeling deep down within.
i am so guilty of making my life look good on the outside when it really doesn't feel that way sometimes. i have a lot of struggles, a lot of stress, things to deal with that most people my age don't. but it doesn't have to be that way. i need to learn to let go of what i can't control and 'create a life that feels good on the inside, not one that just looks good on the outside.'
