Hello, it’s Monday again. How are you finding it over there? Anyways, I have a quick reminder for you, entirely captured in the statement “No Picture-Perfect – See Beneath the Beautiful”.

Imagine your colleague walking through the door today, looking all peng. Then, what crosses your mind is;

“Wow! Look at my mate. Always looking great. Never repeats a dress in 3 months”

I hope you know that the phrase, -‘look at my mate’, has ruined more lives than cocaine.

Let’s Fire On!

Maybe unknown to you, this your colleague has a list of unanswered calls and unreturned messages from boutiques asking for their balance – the price some people pay to look that peng (picture-perfect). I’m just saying though.

The truth is there is no picture-perfect life anywhere. So many people’s happiness depends on the number of likes and comments on social media, – the major reason they present their pictures with filters.

Wait a Minute!

Do you rate people’s success based on their large social media followership? Clarity of their pictures? Or composition of their meals online? There are filters everywhere! Maybe you should try remove filters before rating.

Sometimes, we equally get carried away by social media and we share too much of information out there – dangerously too much.

Sincerely, you do not need to have breakfast, lunch and dinner on the pages of these so-called picture-perfect social media users. Just get what is necessary and move on.

Do not strive to create a picture-perfect life or get carried away by those trying to create same on Social Media and forget to really live.

Please, be you! stay real! live your life to the fullest.

Do have a great week ahead.
