Did you ever think about how here we are able to portray ourselves any way we want? I mean, I try not to edit my photos (anymore) because let's face it, I'm 51 and what's the point?! But I can choose what photos I post here. I can present myself in the best light possible, and I often choose to do that because I like this little space to be a positive, cozy, happy spot in an otherwise chaotic world. I don't, however, want to portray myself as having it all together all the time. That would be unfair and unnecessary.
Take right now, for example. I am currently coming to you through the magic of technology as I sit in my rumpled bed. My sheets are tangled and my bedside table currently holds my phone, earbuds, a book without a bookmark, several tangled cords of various shapes and sizes, and a water bottle from several days ago. Oh. A coffee cup too. I haven't yet brushed my hair, and my skin is semi-clean except for the mounds of Vaseline I am using to break up my scar tissue. My jammies are Halloween witches, cats, and ghosts and are cozy but wrinkled. But cozy.
I have brushed my teeth but then had coffee. So there's that. The tv is on but muted. Because news these days. I will soon get up and get going, but for now, I am here. And I am a hot mess. You might not see that, but please know, that is what you would see if you could see me now. Thanks for visiting, my friends. Have a great Monday!
