People ask, why did you cut your hair? They also ask, why do you live in central Pennsylvania-you used to live in NC??? Life 10 years ago was awesome...I traveled the world DJ-ing... Frequented CA to spend time with my best pals...had long hair and looked my best while living my wildest dreams. Why cut the hair and live where I live? Because life is different now. More responsibility-more roses to smell along this journey. This serene place reminded me why I no longer crave the “hustle and bustle” of big city living. I’ve done more and have been afforded more than many people ever will. I’m a lucky guy. I live a life with 0-Zero-zilch-nada DRAMA, and no one to impress. I don’t care how popular I am or how much time I waste on social media attracting “friends/followers” Life is good just the way it is. Not many of you will read this far, but if you do-don’t forget the little things all add up to big things. And the devil is always in the details.
When I was younger I believed everyone 50+ had their lives all wrapped up & tidy, as it were. Nope. And. I would have loved to know how those who appeared to have perfect lives dealt with imperfections when I was younger... #bereal#womenirl
I’ve read plenty of selfie justifications. I’ve taken and shared a selfie or two (or a hundred) when I actually did something with my hair and got dressed up for a night out with my loving man.
But today I am sharing a different kind of selfie. A #realselfie that shows my normal. That is, big tangled hair that hasn’t been washed in days, tired Mom eyes, no makeup, and a comfy outfit.
This is my normal and I still find it beautiful. 💗When I see my dirty hair it reminds me of all the things I was blessed to be able to do today that kept me from washing it. 💗When I see how long my hair is, it reminds me of how much my husband loves long hair on me. (And how grateful I am that the messy-bun curls don’t look half bad... curling iron? I don’t have time for that. 😂) 💗the tired Mom eyes speak of long hours with precious children that are growing up too quick. 💗No makeup is a reminder of the confidence I now have. There was a time in my life I would have never shared a photo without a full face of makeup. God opened my eyes to truly see the unique beauty he created in me.
Take and share a “real selfie” today. Find the beauty in your unique “normal”. #berealwithme#bereal#realme#honest#grateful#loved#longhair#nomakeup#freshface#fabletics#homeschool#homeschoolmom#mom#momlife#momboss#momproblems#selfie#selfie_time#normalpeople#normalgirl#genuinelove#genuinepeople

We are passionate about shifting our culture to one of TRUE ACCEPTANCE (of ourselves and each other).
So I've been getting real with myself lately. #realtalk#personal .
This quote speaks to me more than ever right now and I will let everyone know that I am the one who wears a mask.... and my bf knows this. We have been working hard to change my mindset from negative to positive. The first step I had to take was trusting and being honest with MYSELF. There is no one more powerful than you when it comes to sabotaging or succeeding in your own life.
The more I choose to talk instead of stay silent is better.
The more I argue instead of walk away and accept whatever is better.
The more I tell myself to shut up instead of spiral down the rabbit hole is better.
The more I can accept the fact that I was wrong (when I really am and I know it) instead of continuing the fight is better.
I am slowly learning that entitlement, silence, and complacency hurts my relationship more than saving it. All my thoughts come from a predisposed idea that the world is out to get me because of my anxiety.
I have the best support group that i have been reaching out to for the last couple of months. Thank you @hupka90 and my parents for helping me out and just being there with and ear and a shoulder.
I still know that I have to be honest with myself first to try and solve my problems because if I am not. I'm arguing for the sake of arguing or better yet I say that I'm sabotaging my relationship for the sake of sabotage.
❤Remember who really cares in your life and be honest with yourself. 🤝🏻Thanks for sticking by my side and helping me conquer myself through these past 4+ years Brandon.😘❤
