Always good to remember that every day we are merely experimenting. And there is no science teacher looking over your shoulder saying you have to get it right (except maybe yourself!)
The definition of an experiment is just performing an action and then observing the outcome.
So you ready....? Class is in session!!🙏💕
I worry about young people who compare everything they see on social media to their life. Where is it written that you have to be a size zero to have a beautiful body? Why is there so much pressure to find your future spouse before you’re out of school? If you’re a young person scrolling through Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook you see perfection all the time. You are being scammed people! Nothing, and I mean nothing, and no relationship or body or life is really flawlessly perfect. It’s not only bullshit it’s a lot like a head fake in a sporting event. We are always failing. Some people might not fail or make mistakes as often as me, but it happens. I spend an exorbitant amount of time taking pictures to post on my personal instagram page. I’ll set the props, get the lighting right, make sure it looks inviting and worthy of a couple likes. That’s human nature with social media. I’m not afraid to admit that. But, I’m 51. I’ve been married almost 27 years. There’s no head fake that can fool me. That being said, my daughters don’t have that experience yet. They’re vulnerable to the head fake. How could they not be? I’ve said to my youngest at least a thousand times, “When you least expect it everything will fall into place.” It’s hard to believe me. Why should she? I tell my married daughter all the time, “Marriage is hard. It’s not pretty all the time.” Why should she get comfort in that when she’s been married only two years and every day on social media there are these gloriously happy pictures of young married couples on Instagram who look like they spoon 24 hours a day. It’s a farce. All of it. I reflect a lot about the life I had when I was a child and becoming a young woman. I could see the skinny girl walking down the hall or in a magazine. But, I couldn’t go home and stare at THOUSANDS of skinny, perfect girls on a machine I held in my hand. The new iPhone update has this feature that tells you how often you’re on your phone, which pages you view the most, the average time you unlock the phone and basically throw in your face how much time you’re wasting looking down falling for the head fake. You’re enough. Look up.
