I frequently get a bit obsessed when it comes to the ~*flow of my feed*~ & I’m honestly the only person in the Universe who cares, it’s not like I’m an influencer or someone whose income depends on partnerships or engagement, so I have to sometimes back off & remember that Instagram should be fun! Not something that I stress about. I think it’s strangely easy to get overwhelmed by seeking “perfection” on social media: posting at the “right time,” getting enough likes, having your message resonate with people...
I need to remember: it doesn’t matter if I post once a week or ten times a day, it doesn’t matter if I use the right hashtags to fit into some unpredictable algorithm, it doesn’t matter if my “grid” is inconsistent, it doesn’t matter that I take pictures on my phone & not some fancy camera. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It matters that I have fun, it matters that I use this space to find inspiration, it matters that I chronicle moments that are important to me, it matters to post “content” that is truthful & that I’m proud of [I’ve read through all of my recent posts, & I do find them truthful, which I’m proud of!], it matters that I interact with friends & people who motivate me, & it matters to know when to take a step back & laugh at it all.
It also matters that I show you guys these tulips that Seb got me for Valentine’s Day that are still hanging in there after a week! 🌷
