A few weeks ago I was floored because I thought – for a split second – that Ali actually had a valid point about something.
It all started after he read my post about trying too hard and said,“It’s one thing to write this stuff for people you don’t know, but are you okay with people you do know reading about your insecurities?”
I thought about it. I almost deleted the post and debated coming up with a new angle on Maya’s hoarding issues. But then I realized that I shouldn’t let my concerns about my audience dictate what I write.
So often we get caught up in putting on our game face. We slap on some makeup. We put on $400 shoes and get manicures and buy designer jeans. We do whatever it takes to cover up our shortcomings and our weaknesses because we only want the world to see us at our best.
One only has to look at my profile picture to know that I too am guilty of this. This photo was taken an hour after I had my hair done professionally and since it looks that good once in a blue moon I knew I had to capture it and put it out there for everyone to see.
And while I want to put my best out there I do think it’s important to maintain some semblance of honesty around here because otherwise you might as well spend your time keeping up with Kim Kardashian as she heads to the gym in full makeup and with perfect hair. Because that’s real life, right?
Oh and Ali? Just to clarify? You didn’t have a valid point after all. Just as I expected.
