—New news : I’m going to be posting to the gram on Wednesdays only & here’s why in a semi short n’ sweet answer : I want to share stories that captivate and make you feel something. Ideas and style that inspire. Show my personality so you can get to know me more— but I want to do that on my terms and with intention. I’ll be dedicating a time to be present here + then present in real life. Self care is something I want to work harder at-this is a small start.
I don’t want Instagram to run my life . plain and simple and I think many of us can relate, especially when you’re using this incredible outlet to share your work. I think it’s easy to get caught up in it. I think it’s easy to compare and create self doubt because of it. I think it’s easy to have this anxiety that if you’re not on it all the time you’re going to lose followers and be forgotten.
Let’s be real for one minute, trying to post solely to get a million likes only burnt me out. It made me dislike being on here and even worse would crush my self esteem if I didn’t get the amount of likes I’d hoped for. But I look at instagram a little differently these days. It’s not about the amount of followers (some will say it is, but for what I’m trying to do with instagram, there’s a bigger picture). It’s about the real, genuine relationships I form on here—that’s what *social* media is. Just because I don’t have 10k followers doesn’t make my work any less worthy **it’s silly but I’d let stats run how I judged my own work even knowing the amount of heart I’d put into it** These days I’m more concerned about connecting with the people who really want to have a real relationship with me and enjoy the stories I share on here.
So, Wednesdays for the gram 😎 every other day for everything else (editing, emails, designing, planning, filming, LIVING). And I know I say this all the time but I’ll never stop repeating it : I am so thankful and appreciative to every single person who supports my work. So many people put their trust in me + let me witness such an intimate part about their lives—I will never stop feeling grateful for that.
