Now that I am here, doing it, I am rethinking if and how I want to share it. I am making so many memories, having so many adventures, and having so many high highs, and low lows.
It also occurs to me there is a plethora of content out there in the world. Some of it exceptional, some of it not. Do I want to be a part of that? If I do, how do I want to contribute?
Reframing my thought process around sharing on social media has been the first step. There have been times, when I am embarrassed to say, I’ve actually thought to myself “I should make content” or ‘this picture will be good for instagram’, which is essentially meaningless. In five, ten years, it really won't matter what it looked like, it will only matter how it felt.
What I want my social media to be is a place for my art. A place where I can create whatever I want. I want to stop with this idea of pleasing a robot to beat an algorithm. I want to document this crazy thing called life. I want to put positivity into the world and use social media as a place to do that.
Sometimes I forget that I actually love social media for a million reasons. The community and connection being at the core. I love that I know people that I otherwise wouldn't because of it. My other absolutely favorite thing about it is that it cultivates art and adventure. Its full of inspiring people, living their purpose, teaching or painting or filming or dancing or sharing their small business or just having fun. It's full of exciting announcements and happy memories. It can be such a positive space.
I have to remind myself that my social media is my responsibility. It is on me to follow who I want and unfollow who I don't. It is my job to be conscious of the time I spend on it, and aware of who I follow.
With this new thought, going forward, I want to share my stories with honesty and integrity. I want to be another source of positivity. I want to record and journal this time in my life, because I am so full of gratitude to be doing this. I want to create art and do what I love. I want to cultivate deep connections with people I encounter. I want to share in alignment with self.
Sending you love-
