Instagram photo by lacikaysomers#RealRecognizesReal As 2016 is coming to an end I've taken a moment today to look back on this year and my life altogether. Im so thankful for everything, including you reading this if you follow me. It's not about money, fame, or recognition, it's about being yourself and inspiring other people to be themselves as well. I know I may "look" a certain way and it's easy to judge me by my looks, but if you've ever met me you know that I just keep it real. With so much hate and "fakeness" in today's society I think it's important for all of us to just be who we want to be, and not pretend to be someone that other people will like.
I don't care if someone doesn't like me, and you shouldn't either, because the reality is that other people's opinions don't pay your bills, and they don't matter. I'd rather wake up every day happy knowing that I don't have to pretend to be someone I'm not just to gain approval, and if you learn anything from me by following me, just learn to love yourself for who you are, and to be as real as you can be. Remember that it's better to be hated for who you are, than loved for who you are not. I hope all of you have a great day today, and end your 2016 with the right mindset, because your mindset can change your life. XoXo - Laci Kay 😘
