However much we may feel for the misery of someone close to us, we always act with some artificiality in their presence. We hold-back from telling them everything we think, often because we do not genuinely mean what we say; or because we take a pleasure in their plight, thankful that we are not affected.
I started exploring still life photography several years ago, and it was also about this time that Instagram was really taking off. So IG quickly became a sort of creative hub for me when I needed a little photographic inspiration.
One day I was scrolling through my feed and one of the gals I followed at the time make a comment along the lines of “make your Instagram feed one worth following”. And something just bowed up inside me and royally pissed me off. There’s something about that word - WORTH - I don’t know…for me it’s just loaded with all kinds negative shit and really taps deeply into my own feelings of perfectionism and insecurity.
But this gal had a gazillion followers and I figured she knew what was best. So, despite the protest in my soul, I started hustling to ‘curate’ my feed. Long story short, a couple of years ago I just said ‘f*** it’. I was SO sick of it. Sick of hustling. Sick of trying to manage it all. But mostly, my soul was sick of letting someone else tell me what I should or should not post on IG. Because I love it all. I love my girl. I love my garden. I love playing with my treasures. I love the golden hour. And the fact that these are all expressions of my heart and my desire to live an intentional, inspired life - that makes it all work.
And if it doesn’t, you know what? I DON’T CARE. I have zero interest in curating an Instagram feed that does not reflect who I am and what I love. Because the minute I stop listening to my own soul, it ceases to inspire me or any one else.
I’m sharing this today because I want to encourage you to listen to your soul when it comes to any sort of creative endeavor. And it’s hard sometimes…it’s hard to hear its gentle whispers amidst the noisy and often superficial world of social media. But trust that voice because it will tell you what you need and where to go. 💕
