I have to be totally honest with you - Instagram has felt like a chore lately. Even today as I write this caption, I'm struggling to put words together! It's been this way for a while now, and If I'm being honest with myself I'd have to admit that I've lost sight of what this little app can do.
Instagram holds the power to create community and connection, to form new relationships and gain insight from others. I follow so many inspiring people who share their hearts, their experiences, their wins and their losses - and create a community of like-minded people along the way!
Instead of pursuing relationships and connection, I've settled for making this app purely an item on my to-do list. Well I'm not settling for that anymore; It's time to make a change! I've let myself get caught up in the numbers, and have lost sight of the people behind it all. Authentic connection is so much more meaningful to me than simply leading with a sales pitch, and I want to lead with genuineness.
This all feels a little more vulnerable than what I'd usually share, but I know that's moving in the right direction. This account has never been all about us or trying to appear like Local Stature has it all together, but I want to take that one step further. Here's to hoping that we can add a little more heart back into what we're trying to do here, and share some fun projects and amazing stories along the way! |
