Monochrome Lace

On Tuesday I had photoshoot on Taman Menteng with Nathalie as my photographer (check out her portfolio on Instagram @snapdocumentary). Before I went to Taman Menteng, my friend did my make up (check out her portfolio on Instagram @handamakeup). The photos and make up results are beyond amazing! You can see it by yourself. Click "read more" to see more photos :)

Nb: I also share something in this post. You can read it below :)






Anyway, I want to tell you something. Nowadays I'm learning to think that I'm enough. So here's the story: to be honest, I became addicted to get many likers and followers on Instagram. How could I know it? I realized about it since all my blogger gang member got followers and likers more than me. And when I knew about it (I often check their Instagram just to see how many followers that they get), I lost my joy. I compare myself to them. I used to envying my friends who got many followers and likers on their Instagram. I reached the point that I thought people get many followers and likers because they're pretty. So if I didn't get many followers and likers, it means I less pretty compared to them. That's my thought and I was totally wrong.

Our worth can't be measured by how many like and follower we get. We're enough with who we are. We don't need anything to make us more valuable. Nothing we can do to make us more valuable. We're precious and beautiful just the way we are. Please don't ever compare yourself to others because there will always be people who are prettier, smarter, etc than us. So if we compare ourself to others, we'll lost our peace and joy and it sucks. The key is be grateful for who we are. You know, it's God's gift for us that we become who we are now with all our flaws. If you hate yourself or think that you're ugly etc, it's like you say "God, I hate Your creation. You suck at creating me!". If you often compare yourself to others who have more followers than you, stop checking their Instagram. I can say don't play with fire. By checking their Instagram, you'll find yourself more miserable (if you're still addicted to it). Contentment is a state of mind.

Now I can be grateful with 1.6k followers that I get. I don't envying my friends anymore and I still stop checking their instagram and still trying to not compare myself to them. Sometimes I fail, but it's okay, that's how I'm learning. If it doesn't hard, we don't learning. I do really learn to be content with who I am and what I have (Philippians 4:12 "....I’ve learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I’m just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little..."). I'm blessed with these lovely followers and likers that I get. I feel so blessed beyond compare :)
