JOIN: Celebrating Being Alive
Every Saturday, join me as I CELEBRATE This Week
with Ruth Ayres from Discover. Play. Build.
I'm in love with Instagram more and more everyday. I gravitated towards Instagram initially because every post is an image. When I was in high school, I saved money to buy a super simple SLR camera. I had no idea what I was doing but I dreamed of taking a photography class and developing my own pictures in a dark room. I never did take a class but I still love taking pictures and know some basics of what to pay attention to when taking a picture.
Lately, I find that I'm most inspired by people on Instagram. Still, I love the images people post, the glimpses into people's lives but I also love the people who are there standing up, sharing their truth, being honest and saying it like it is. They inspire me so much.
And then today I saw someone post something about being pessimistic...and the caption said something like, "I can't be pessimistic because I woke up today." Isn't that so true? Sure, the world is far from perfect....but here we are. We're here. Alive, experiencing the ups and the downs, the good and the bad. And for that I'm thankful.
If you're on Instagram, you can find me there at @mentortexts.
As always, thanks for stopping to celebrate with me!
I'm here, you're here and I'm so glad.
