Stepping into claiming I’m a “photographer” I sometimes get this idea I can’t post just any photograph on my Instagram. It must live up to a certain standard I’ve created in my head. Don’t get me wrong I see the value in being consistent in art, but I don’t want it to take away from the life I’m living. Instagram isn’t where I just show my work. Yes, I do post some of it, but I want to show my life. .
So here I am – you’ll hear my laugh a mile away, I’ll listen to what you have to say, I’ve struggled with lies, I’m a total goof, and I totally forget how long I’ve known you. My brain truly believes we’ve been friends for a lifetime.
I never want to display perfection only my pursuit of Jesus. I hope you get to see a glimpse of what God has been doing in me. I want to do life with you and meet up outside of this platform. Social media has caused more isolation leading to depression. We get stuck in longing for another life, wanting to be someone else, and spending hours on our devices. Scrolling on our phone doesn’t have much to give us but take our time. Though when it does give you something when you connect with like-minded people, then build that relationship! I’ve made dear friends from this platform.
So, get your head up, be present where you are, and most importantly be yourself. I want to see more of who you are not images that are unrealistic. Live authentically and more authentic people will enter your life. You attract your tribe – Who are you trying to attract?
