We live in a world where information can be granted at our fingertips. We can search the web and find out anything about anything or anyone. Technology has connected our world in one of the most intimate ways. Social media has given people the platform to share their lives. Instagram, facebook, twitter… are all vessels for people to be connected and heard. I’ve personally realized that this can be overwhelming. I can now sit on my phone and join a reality with people across the world. I follow bloggers in Greece while I also watch videos of makeup artists in Australia. This is absolutely amazing that we have this opportunity. I’m able to get inspired and learn from people all over the world. However, there are pros and cons to everything. I read a quote once that said, “become aware of your awareness.” This basically means, realize where your attention is at. It’s wonderful to look at other peoples lives and get inspiration, as long as you’re living your life as well. I feel as if sometimes we get so caught up in the lives of others, we forget how to live our own. Nobodies wellbeing or life matters as much as yours. You were created to live your OWN life the best way possible. If you wish so bad to be healthy, as active, or as involved as others, then do it! The time is now people. Defining your own happiness and lifestyle is crucial. What really matters is that we are enjoying our own lives and pleased with everything we create in it. Comparison can be healthy and motivating, but it also can become degrading. Becoming aware of where your attention is, and where you are in your own life can tell you a lot about yourself. If you so bad want to be something, what’s stopping you? I remember for so long I would follow makeup artists and business woman and I wanted to become that so bad. I finally realized, why am I not? I spent way too much time loving the lives of others, that I wasn’t creating that love for my own life.  You are more than enough, and you have the ability to create whatever you wish in your life.

Sugar D - I agree 100%. It's time to start living our lives, instead of following people living their on social media.

Social media is a powerful tool, and needs to be used effectively.

I love all your blog post, we need more!
