Social Media

Today I wanted to share something simple on my mind recently.  But to preface my thoughts I’ll explain that I grew up without social media, I did  have an account at one point as a teenager, but I rarely used it.  Last year was when I first became consistently active on social media and it has been a wonderful  way to connect with other artists and all of you, and I can say for certain that the  stories and messages you’ve shared have enriched my life simple.  I have enjoyed it very much, but have also observed how easy it is for social media to  fuel a sense of inadequacy and comparison.    It is so easy to see what someone shares, especially their lifestyle, as something you  wish you had.  But in my case, that feeling never went away by moving over here.

Romanticing  the living

I started to romanticize city living.  Out here there aren’t very many people, and so while it is still very possible to  make friends who share your interests, it’s not as easy as in a city with hundreds of  thousands of people.  There are few restaurants, shops, and to get to large stores you need to take a 2 hour  round trip is simple.  Initially, while living here I missed my book clubs, my coworkers, and had a horrible sense  that I was missing out on life by living in such a quiet area.   I love, like my boyfriend.

Experiencing

That’s why I don’t share everything, utybecause when I’m with someone, or experiencing a  very special moment, I want to experience it fully.  Pausing to capture it for posterity would detract from that. It’s what makes me comfortable and keeps me inspired, I guess?  I hope that makes sense.  Anyway, I appreciate all of you, I really do, and I hope you’re doing well and embracing  whatever chapter of your story you are currently in.  Each one is precious and has so much to give.  There is so much love and beauty in this messy world.  Take care, and have a lovely day or night.
