A friend earlier told me I am photogenic. Well in today’s world of beauty filters, who isn’t? 😋
And I am not offended with that. I’m quite flattered actually. And I’m okay with using Beauty Filters. Not because I am conscious of how I look, but exactly because I don’t care about how I look. Haha. Seriously, it’s an automatic setting on my camera phone which I don’t bother removing or adjusting. For someone who works in an IT industry, I don’t like fiddling with such things. And for someone who calls herself a crafter, I am not really good with photography. So I just snap photos. From anywhere. Anyhow. Haha.
But yeah, admittedly, I do look good through the lenses today’s camera phone and I know a lot of people are fond of their own phones and selfies as well. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be a default feature, right? It may have been a big deal to many, but not to me.
Eitherway — since we’re already on the topic…
Here’s my ‘I woke up like this’ with nofilter-filter look:
And here’s my ‘ready for work’ with nofilter-filter look:
So when they say I look good in photos lately, I’d say, “Thanks! Sa filter lang yan!”
And as they say, it doesn’t matter as long as you know you’re not doing anything wrong to anybody and as long as you are comfortable with yourself and the things that you do. It is another story if you do things only because you are after what people think, and worse is when you do things like use filters because you are not comfortable with yourself. So if you are fond of hashtagging your photos with filters or nofilters to prove a point, or to compare yourself with others, or worse, to mock others, better check yourself. Afterall, your photos on social media do not really matter to people who really know you and value you for your true worth. 😉
Just how my ever supportive and loving hubby would always tell me, wala naman masyado pinagkaiba mi! Maganda ka pa rin.
Ang haba ng hair ko diba?!
Though I have been going through changes around this whole health and beauty thing lately (more on this on my next post), I see to it that I am and stay happy with myself.
At the end of the day, we are God’s creation We are His children created on His likeness. We are meant to be beautiful. And what matters most to Him is what’s on the inside. God looks at the heart.
So before we become too concsious with selfie filters or no filters. Let us be consious that our character is above-all, filtered and free from the bad. 😉
