Ever had one of those eye awakening moments? If not, trust me you will. And recently I had one of those moments and it all started with this photo…
I think a person can get several thoughts from looking at this. At first I laughed and brushed it off but then the image stayed with me throughout the day. Then it hit me, lately I WAS THE ONE who was so focused on getting others approval and sadly to say, like my look. Not from my peers but from potential clients, booking agents and etc and I hated it!!!
I am NOT a TYPICAL commercial girl (my epiphany) neither do I want to be. I am a Artist, a person who doesn’t like to blend in and is definitely not a follower. Seeing Tim RISE (for me succeed) with those balloons and believing in who he was, was exactly what I needed to see to snap out of it.
Luckily this only lasted for a few short months. I changed my hair and changed my focus but then soon enough I started to constantly compare myself to others who PORTRAYED that they have it all. In the beginning I thought it was a positive change but then it became a constant battle with who I REALLY AM and what I THOUGHT I wanted.
Why should every teenage girl read this? Because growing up I didn’t have a phone and computer to constantly see what other people were doing or at least claiming who they were. Todays generations can sometimes do WILD and INSANE things for a LIKE! Its cool to have followers and to have those likes but our self worth and self confidence should not depend on them.
I just want to say to all the Females out there young and wise that NEVER battle with who you are called to be!
DO NOT COMPARE YOURSELF TO ANYONE
DO NOT THINK THE GRASS IS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE
DO NOT LET YOUR MORALS FALL FOR THE APPROVAL (LIKE) OF OTHERS
And finally LOVE WHO YOU ARE…it might take some practice, especially in todays society but remember, there is only ONE YOU and YOU have something to give that NO ONE else can.
Tip: Find out what you are good at, what you like to do and go with it
Much love, God Bless
