I try to remind myself it’s okay not to be perfect. One of my biggest fears was posting a pic without makeup. Don’t get me wrong I love make up it’s fun to do. I finally realized how crazy that sounds though. So here I am with my red skin, blemishes, and my weird freckles. I think social media has become such a strong place for self image but also it’s not portraying a real one. It’s time for empowerment to embrace your insecurities. To truly love and accept yourself for all that you are because nobody’s perfect. We all get old, we all get acne, we all have those days. I think I deserve to eat chocolate and break out or to spend the day reading books I love. It’s ok to not be perfect. It’s kind of overrated. At the end of the day those things make me who I am – raw, real and beautiful. ~Gean
Going to be off social media for a while. I got a lot going on with just missing out on things. I wanna focus on my health and not miss out on what’s right in front of me anymore. I think it’s so important to be healthy physically and mentally, and I think sometimes social media can drain us from all that’s going on so we have to step back and take a breath and be Zen. I have surgery coming up in a few so wish me luck. I will be back and better then ever soon. ~ Gean
My name is Gean. I’m 21 and a small town girl. I love the outdoors and having the cozy sunshine on my face. I enjoy photography, reading, and going on adventures though life. I’m an old soul who has been around for awhile who has seen the most beautiful moments in life, and the saddest too. I go on. I climb the hardest mountains even when people say I don’t have any experience or I’m not gonna make it. I will always learn from my mistakes, get up, and try again because I know one day I will be at the top of that mountain. I’ll be looking over the world and seeing what a beautiful and wonderful view it is, and what a beautiful adventure it was to get there. So never give up on your dreams, be yourself, and live life with love, peace and happiness.
