2021: THE YEAR OF ZERO F***S

I’ve never really been a confident person although sometimes it may look that way. Im insecure about a lot of things, but I’m human. It’s taken me a long time to get here, and I still have a ways to go, but I’m learning to accept myself for who I am. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

I’ve always been a very private + protective person, so for me to start a public Instagram account for our farm was just super left-field for me. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

I’d love to say I don’t care what anyone thinks. I really would. But as stubborn + tough as I may seem from the outside, I’m ridiculously sensitive. I take everything to heart... so because of this, I hold myself back. But being honest, transparent + real is very important to me, so I’m really trying! ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

At first, I was so hesitant to post any photos of myself, and absolutely refused to put my face on my stories. And I know this sounds stupid because it’s just social media but by forcing myself just a little bit more out of my comfort zone each day, I can feel myself getting stronger. I give far less f***s (and omg if you haven’t tried giving less f***s, I highly recommend it. LIFE. CHANGING.) The more I put myself out there, the more empowered I am to just keep being me. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

So every day I just keep showing up. Simple as that. Just trying to be myself, and learning to be comfortable with it. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

To be authentic doesn’t mean you can’t change. We’re meant to change, but if you can do that while still remaining true to who you are - to me, that’s ultimate authenticity. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

So in the spirit of being real, here’s a picture of me... and an extremely vulnerable caption to go along with it. Hoping to empower someone else to say WHO CARES (and mean it 😅). Post the damn selfie. Tell us about your day. Share whatever you want and don’t second-guess it. Just keep showing up. And if someone isn’t into it? Well they know where the door is. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

DO YOU, and don’t ever apologize for it. ⁣⁣
