You Are the Sunset

Have you ever seen a drop-dead gorgeous sunset and wanted to capture the moment to share on social media? You take that photo, look at your phone, and think, yikes, this looks nothing like the stunning sunset in front of me.

That's how I've learned to view the world. It's so difficult to capture essence and beauty through an Instagram photo. So don't be fooled when you're scrolling through social media and see all this picture-perfect perfection. Remember, you are the sunset. It's impossible to capture all of your essence in a single photograph.

We often get caught up in comparing ourselves to the polished, filtered images we see online. But the truth is, our imperfections are what make us gorgeous and stunning—just like the sunset. It’s different every day, and yet we love it all the same.
