You guys. It’s been a while I know.
Truth is, I’ve had the time to post, I’ve just chosen not to. It’s so easy to get caught up in the rat race of Instagram, to constantly put pressure on yourself if you’re not keeping up to date, posting regularly, engaging regularly etc etc. I started to notice this unnecessary anxiety pattern in my day to day life because “I haven’t caught up on instagram today!!!” _
While going on this so called “posting detox”, I would be lying if thoughts like “am I gonna lose followers?”, “what if people think I’m not a good enough content creator because I haven’t posted in a while” didn’t come into my head. And then I decided to ignore all the thoughts, and enjoy being a spectator on the gram for a little while. It’s been good, it’s been needed, and there’s something powerful about getting that detox and coming back stronger than ever
Life has been crazy, but always a good crazy! Constantly working towards our dreams, whether it be instagram, travel, our first little home, wedding plans - the list goes on! But with all this, I’ve learnt to never stop smiling, and never stop loving. Everyday is filled with at least one moment love. Whether that be to my gorgeous fiancé, a bestie friend, or a stranger in a shopping mall. Instagram goes on, the rat race continues, but never forget that there’s a real life rat race surrounding you, that needs a lot more physical love than the virtual love you can give on instagram.
Take the time to sit back, be proud of what you’ve achieved thus far, but appreciate the fact that even without your social media profile, you’re still a beautiful, successful, loving and influential human being❤️
I hope this stew of words I’ve just typed out makes as much sense to you as it did to me 😂 #therealchallengesofaninstagrammer
