Realizing, as I post this, how different my hiking outfits look on Kauai. This would create a scene on Runyon Canyon in LA. 😂

I spend so much time worrying about how I look back home (and generally feeling self-conscious). I think twice before going out without my hair and makeup done, and picking out clothing feels genuinely stressful. 😬
.
I tend towards being a bit vain and over-concerned with appearances (it’s something I work on daily), and living in LA, I feel like have to work extra hard love myself no matter what and not get sucked in to the comparison game. It doesn’t always work. 😬
.
I’m starting to wonder if living in such an image-obsessed place really isn’t very good for me. 🤔
.
Here on Kauai, I feel confident from the moment I wake up. I rarely even have a thought about how my hair looks or what clothes I’ll wear, and I quit wearing makeup usually by day 3. 💆🏼‍♀️
.
I wore makeup on my birthday, and I laughed so hard, for so long, that it made me cry and fill my eyes with mascara. It was a reminder that I’d like to laugh endlessly without worrying about my makeup (or experiencing itchy painful eyes). 😂🙌🏻
.
Priorities here are different. It’s less about how life looks, and more about how life feels… and it feels so right. 🙌🏻
.
I almost moved to Kauai instead of West Hollywood, and now I’m once again questioning my decision making abilities. 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
I probably should have moved here instead, but I just signed a year long lease, so I’ll make the best of it… and come decompress and reprioritize on Kauai as often as I can. 😉
