You've probably heard this so many times before from at least one person or another complaining about some goddam gal... it's rarely a guy, right... who's put up the umpteenth selfie, once a day for quite some time. And maybe it's confused you... as it does me as well... how this could possibly be an undesirable action? Social media is a free country.... if someone doesn't like your selfies, they don't have to look at 'em, amiright?
After growing up being overly warned about humbleness, I took it to an extreme and was super humble, but it got to the point of where I took pride in not looking in mirrors or taking photos, and I became so colorless and afraid to glow, that it became detrimental. So there are extremes in both directions, but after my overly modest, unselfish and hyper humble youth, I'm ready to balance it all out and indulge in a huge smile while sharing with you all that I absolutely adore when you all post selfies.
I just love your selfies. I love when you rock an outfit that you want to share with everyone, and I love that selfie you took when you felt extra radiant. I feel empathy for you when you look down or pensive in your selfie, and I can't help but grin at the selfies of you when you're being goofy. I totally dig the selfies of you and your cross eyed cat, and the ones you take of you with your indignant pet bunny whose face is smashed up against your grinning cheeks. I love your driver's seat selfies, and your almost drunk selfies where you're having a blast out with your friends. The joy just radiates from you.
I love the dressing room selfies where you're totally glamming it up in outfits you never dream of buying, but that look in your eyes says it all. You're having the time of your life... and you shared it with all of us. I love the bathroom mirror selfies that capture the subtle look in your expression that tells a story more than words could say... you're sharing a piece of your day with us with just this simple photo, and it's your way of saying hi to your friends in a creative, cool way.
All these selfies... they are a window into your beautiful, sometimes crazy and chaotic, amazing life, and you willingly share them with all of us... and for that I say thank you, and Namaste.
|Namaste, and keep taking selfies!|
