I took A LOT of ridiculous pictures on New Year’s Eve. It started because I’m still trying to learn to create Instagram stories (can someone help me please?!) and somehow it ended with me using Facebook’s new filters on everyone at the party. Until someone stole my phone and used them on me.
It’s entirely fitting that earlier in the day, I was catching up on Jen Hatmaker’s For The Love podcast, listening in on her chat with Chrissy Kelly. They closed their time together talking about comparison. They talked about how easy it is to see other people’s success in life, especially their perfectly filtered social media feeds, and compare our current step #2 to their step #10. We think everyone else is more joyful, more peaceful or even just having more fun.
Newsflash: I don’t really have a knit beard.
See, I got you. Seriously though. All the stories we’re “seeing” …
