As I’m scrolling back on the camera roll of photographs Laz took, while we had a quick unplanned stroll in the park, just reminded me that nothing is really as it seems. The wonderful world of social media and IG filters have us experiencing serious FOMO and day dreaming about stuff that isn’t really as fabulously picture perfect as it appears in our feeds.  Take this selfie for example…

Everything else aside… lets bow our heads in a moment of silence for my #brows ?

“kaantie” in real life, I’m laying in a BMXing pool, next to a stinking puddle and a dead frog! Sometimes we share half truths, and that is your social media right to do so LOL. Cut out the unwanted, filter then brigthen, and you dare not forget to contrast or shade… what the heck! while you’re at it, why not turn yourself into a cartoon. BTW I am yet to download Prisma. I also wanna be awesome like you!


Looking at the picture above, I feel a sermon coming up…

Sometimes we get so comfortable in the hell hole that we find ourselves in, we even start  decorating it… making it seem like an ohkay-ish place to be at. We adapt to the environment, after a while our sense of smell becomes desensitized, so much that we can’t even recognize the dead surrounding us.

We find shade and make ourselves at home…  in a swamp!

  1. the action or practice of allowing oneself to believe that a false or unvalidated feeling, idea, or situation is true


Deceiving your IG followers and FB friends with that Makeup App is cool, like go ahead, flourish! But telling yourself that it’s fine to be in the Spiritual/ Financial/ Emotional/ Domestic/ Unhealthy/ Overweight situation that you find yourself in, that is not cool!

James 1 :22 “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

So if you still want to play make believe after reading this, be my guest. If not, simple… start doing what the Word says!

In other news, here are a few of the photos that didn’t make it onto my IG. Ohkay the last one did, but really… can you blame me?? How handsome is my bearded boyfriend!!


Thanks for popping in, I appreciate you taking the time to read. Have a blessed week further and remember not to take this social media thing tooo serious… and last but not least, be thou not deceived!
