National Selfie Day

Did you know that Wednesday was National Selfie Day?

Yeah, I didn’t either until I happened to switch the TV from the DVD to the cable mode after I worked out that morning.  The Today Show was on, and they were talking about how much time we spend taking selfies . . . seven minutes for each one!  It is estimated that we will spend over 200,000 hours over the course of our lives taking selfies.

Unbelievable, eh?

I’ll admit that I am as guilty as anyone else.

Hello Snapchat, which has the BEST filters, y’all!

Disney, anyone?

I am one cool cat.

I always match my ears with my workout clothes.

Weighing the pros and cons of doing anything productive during my break.

 

Of course, Instagram had to get in on the action.  Their filters are okay . . .

If you need me, I’ll be hibernating until August.

Queen – of Everything

When I’m not sleeping or working out, I’ll be driving . . . to the beach . . . if the sun will ever come out again.

So, what is this obsession with fish-lipped selfies?

I really don’t know except that they are fun, and they give people a glimpse into our whimsical selves.

They allow us to be silly without taking ourselves so seriously.

Life isn’t always pleasant, so indulging in a bit of fun, seven minutes at a time (cause you know you’ve got to delete fifteen photos before you get THE perfect shot), can be a much-needed pick-me-upper.

Selfie on!
