Real Gets Lost In The Artificial

Just feeling….

  • Tired
  • Frustrated
  • Exhausted
  • Worn Out
  • Spent
  • Frazzled

Just wanting to…

  • Cry
  • Sleep
  • Eat your favorite comfort food
  • Take a hot shower
  • Read
  • Write
  • Take a trip
  • Escape from reality
  • Hang out with friends
  • Run away

Experience is reality…

  • Need to finish a project at work
  • Need to clean house
  • Need to get groceries
  • Need to wash laundry
  • Need to take care of the kids
  • Need to make supper
  • Need to study
  • Need to prepare for the new week

Does this sound like what you experience? Do not feel alone because your feelings are real.

This is what reality looks like and knowing this allows us to know when life gets messy it is okay because others know this experience as well.

In this day of “perfect ” social media, it is easy to loose track of what reality looks like because it gets lost in the rose colored lenses of our cameras and fancy captions we put with the images.

Anything can look good when you add fancy filters to your pictures and inauthentic captions to make them look and sound beautiful, but the “real” gets lost in the artificial .

When we look through Facebook and Instagram we can easily fall into a place where we see those images and lives as easy and “perfect” when in reality they are not. They are not because they are not “real”.

We live in the “real” and not in the “perfect”. Cling to your real and find peace in the difficult days while rejoicing during the good ones because they are there to rejuvenate and refresh you while preparing you for the difficult days when they arrive.

The reality is…

  • Life is real.
  • Life is messy.
  • Life is happy.
  • Life is difficult.
  • Life is exhilarating.
  • Life is devastating.
  • Life is joyous.
  • Life is exhausting.

Lastly, remember life is what you make of it. There are many days that are joyous while there are many that discouraging, but God gives us the strength to get through them all.
