Instagram can be so obvious and there is so much regurgitating of information just for the sake of posting ‘content’ and getting interaction on posts. And while some of this information is helpful, inspiring and motivating, it can sometimes be hard to believe it’s honest and genuine or if it’s just been cut and copied for the sake of ig.
It’s easy to get sucked into thinking you need to provide content for your followers, when really ig is a bit of fun, and the majority of people follow you just to have a nose and see some cool photos of your life and I guarantee long posts (like this one looool) rarely get read. IMO you should be able to post whatever the hell you like and post photos of things that make you happy, not just ‘useful’ info and pictures that only match your theme.
Posts seem to have to come with an inspirational message now, which can be amazing and a lot of goodness is spread this way, but only when it’s honest and legit, not just stolen from someone else because you kindaaa relate and they got hella likes.
Im being mindful to not waste time scrolling down Instagram reading the same stuff over and over. Can you even imagine what we’d get done in the day if IG didn’t exist?!😱
It can sometimes feel like you should be living life to the moto’s you see plastered over social media, when really even the person that posted it probably isn’t living life that way or feeling that way lesbehonest🤷🏼♀️
My posts haven’t been very ‘fitness’ or contained much ‘inspo info’ recently because I’m not living my life around content for Instagram, if I wanna share my thoughts (like now) I will. Otherwise, I’m just snapping pics of what makes me happy and sharing some of my crazy little life rn💗
So please enjoy my random photos of the world, a few essays of my thoughts, and me just doing my best to save the world, one animal at a time😌

See that dude in the corner? The one with the high, pointed KKK-like hood and robes. You might get a little freaked out seeing someone dressed like that casually walking the streets in broad daylight if you didn’t know what was going on. But it was just business as usual in Seville during Semana Santa, the Holy Week religious processions leading up to Easter. What an experience it was jostling with the well-dressed crowds and following the different brotherhoods of each procession through the narrow streets of Seville all night! 👻 #semanasanta
