There’s nothing more aluring about a girl than her confident smile. Constantly being a happy woman can be difficult these days because we live in a world full of competition. Thanks to social media, we constantly compare ourselves to others by simply clicking on an app. We believe social media can be a place for raw, confident, supportive, + loving people. However, it can also be full of negativity + inaccurate representations resulting in feeling self-conscious + not good enough.
Becca + I have felt that way before. We felt like we needed to change our clothes, make up, hair, lifestyle, things we had, or big steps we felt like we had to take just to feel a tiny bit of satisfaction of inclusion. But in the end, we still felt like outsiders. We realized it’s not about the way we look, what we buy, the places we travel to, or what job we have. None of that matters. We always compared our lives to the ones we saw through a screen + judged our own.
We believe we have recently grown away from that + started to see + feel our self-worth. We are here to tell you that you are beautiful, just the way you are. As cliché as that sounds, it’s true. The way we live our lives are never going to be the exact same as someone else’s, so why judge it? It doesn’t mean that one is behind or ahead in life, it means we are on different paths + that’s OK! We embrace the flawed, weird, quirky, imperfect, beautiful, magical people that we are. We encourage you, our readers, to do the same.
Here’s a list of ideas to how to get our beautiful readers smiling, because pretty girls smile.
- Stay focused on yourself. Do not compare your life to anyone. Live your own life + be confident of your path. Everyone’s path is different.
- Live a stress-free lifestyle. Relax, go on adventures, + try new things.
- Learn to love yourself. Embrace the person you are + the person you want to be.
- Have a positive outlook. Mistakes are going to happen, learn from them + move on. There is good in every situation.
- Do what you love. This life is too short to waste your time doing anything else. Take the risk + have some fun!
Just so you know, you are enough! Treat yourself like you are + share your smile to the world, pretty girl.
