Blessed, Not Stressed

I recently watched a video by fellow Virginian YouTuber Kaleb McAfee about her experience with quitting social media for 30 days (check it out here!). She mentioned her feeling that social media can have negative effects on so many different aspects of your life and I completely agree. Not a day goes by that I don't feel bad about not having the perfect body, wardrobe, or just life in general. I take time out of my day, time away from my daughter and boyfriend, to make sure I upload the perfect photo with the perfect filter at the perfect time. It's a vicious cycle that bloggers, influencers, and YouTubers go through on a daily basis.


After that video, I've decided that I am DONE with social media. I am done letting an app on my phone dictate how I feel about my life. I have been blessed with a beautiful baby girl, an amazing boyfriend, basically a pretty good life that I take for granted every day because they don't match up with someone else's highlight reel. I'm over stressing about likes and followers; I'd much rather focus on every blessing in my life instead.

I titled this post "Blessed, Not Stressed," because it's my new life motto. I plan on giving priority to all the blessings in my life and completely ignoring anything or anybody who causes me stress. It's 2018 shouldn't we all be trying to live this way?

  1. I have taken breaks from social media because it just consumes time. I have unfollowed people just based on the fact I compare myself to them before. You are beautiful and i see those pics of your gorgeous little girl! You do you because you look fab mama!

    1. Thank you so much Ruth! Your comment really made my day and put a much needed smile on my face. I've taken breaks, too, and I think I'm due for another one pretty soon. I have definitely unfollowed those who I often compare myself to. I'm all for doing things that improve your mental health and how you feel about yourself. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your experience!!
