It’s amazing how much has changed over the years as social media has gotten so popular. While there are some really good benefits of all of the social media sites, there are some drawbacks too, especially when it comes to sharing pictures. It’s so easy just to share the edited, good parts of life. So much so that people spend time ‘staging’ pictures: using filters, editing etc. We share the good parts of our lives, but what about the bad, not so pretty moments?
Because of this, I had a desire to create #LetsBeRealTogether. The idea and hope behind this movement is that we share the real moments of our day. Unedited. Unfiltered. Raw. Vulnerable. Real life.
I never want to anyone to think that my life is perfect. It’s far from it. It’s hard. I have bad days. I struggle. Our house is often a mess. I go out in public looking like a mess. The list could go on all day long. And while I get why no one chooses to share these moments (because really, I don’t want or desire to see someones messy life) sometimes it’s nice to set pride aside and share the humble, not so pretty photos as a reminder that we are all human and none of us are perfect.
