We often show a highlights reel of our lives.
We show off the perfect and the happy.
I didn’t film how I cried for an hour getting dressed because I felt fat. I didn’t film myself when I first woke up – bleary eyed, in 5 day old pyjamas and I need of a coffee. I didn’t film myself struggling to zip up my trousers in the port-a-Loos because eating had made me bloated. I didn’t film me taking my make up off at the end of the day.
I filmed the good bits.
Whilst it’s important to remember that what we see of other peoples lives is a heavily edited and carefully selected few moments – it’s nice to look back on your highlights.
It can be so easy to focus on the negative – so here is my positive.
