Friend, can I be real with you?
I took the end of December / beginning of January off social media. At the time, it felt so immensely right. During the time, it felt so immensely right. Then, one day, it no longer felt right. It felt like the perfect time to be be back on social media. Since then, it has felt so right staying in the social media rhelm.
Why did it feel right to get off?
Truthfully, because I was burnout.
Burnt out from what?
From 2020 being a year of a pandemic, two state wide shutdowns, the wedding industry coming to a near standstill, preparing for and supporting my husband while he was in fire academy (not a small endeavor, whatsoever), intentionally raising a kind, exceptional human, running my business, having 32 sessions in one month alone (oh, I am insanely grateful for this), being a very committed, loyal human, all the while trying to make time for me. I thought being on social media made things that much more exhausting.
What I found out, was being on social media, yes - it can be exhausting if used in the wrong way, but my friend, being on and in this incredible community, it is so life giving, so supportive. It enables me to stay connected to all the amazing souls along the journey - personally, through photography, within the creative community and beyond. It creates a space for me to learn - not only about myself, but other inspirational entrepreneurs, thought leaders, creatives within this world. It enables me to stay connected with my rad clients, their growing families and all the goodness that it beings. It creates space for me to share, share deeply, fully, completely. It enables me to stay connected with my friends who are literally all around the world.
For this, all of this, I am insanely grateful.
For you, all of you, I am insanely grateful.
This space, really is so beautiful.
You, really are so beautiful.
This space, really is so inspirational.
You, really are such an inspiration.
