Authentic You

For awhile now I have felt the need to share this. Not because I think you need to change but to voice the inner struggles I have faced. If what I am about to share defines you or your situation than this is for you.

We live in a modern age. Whether you Blog, Instagram, Pinterest, or Youtube we get influenced. Don't lie and say that you don't. How many times have you done something just because its a growing trend or one of your favorite 'Bloggers' have done it. Flower headbands are in, got them. Paper straws it is! Mason jars sure why not. Top knots Ok. 

Have you ever wondered what makes so and so, so popular. What does she do, what does she have that makes everybody like her? 

Do you ever wonder what are your special talents? Do you really like photography or do you just do it because everybody else does? Are vintage knick-knacks really your style? Do you even have something that your good at? It seems that everyone is good at something, crocheting, sewing, crafting, writing, photography. They all have a specific style braces, glasses, bangs, ombre hair, what's yours? Are there any talents left for you? Who are you... the true you? 

This blog post may have presented more questions than answers, but thats ok for know.

I've learned that some things are just not me, no matter how IN they are. I've learned its okay to like something that everybody else does because YOU like it. Instead of wanting to be like that popular girl on social media I can lover her and learn from her. I've learned that sometimes you just don't have a THING. 

You are you, just authentically true.


  1. This is such a great post! It really made me think about who I really am and who I am trying to be. Thanks!

  2. Hey, nice post sweets....
    Maybe we can follow each other..!!
    Keep in touch

  3. Thanks Alicia for those encouraging words; ones that encourage us to be who God made us to be and not an imitation of another :)

  4. A very thought provoking post.
    Remain being truthful to yourself and always know that you don't have to be liked or try to impress any one.. You are accepted by God.Loved by Him. you are who he made you to be. everything else you can learn and do is a gift.
    no need for comparison or for approval.

  5. Thanks for reminding us that we were all created individually! Sometimes it is hard to forget that as we try to be exactly like someone else who is popular or we admire

be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer."
