I’ve been thinking. (It’s sincerely nothing that exciting.) It’s mostly about me needing to apologize to myself and come clean about trying to be something I can’t be.
I tried for about a month…a good, solid month, to have one of those aesthetically pleasing outdoor themed Instagram feeds where everything is the same tone and feeling. Did it look nice? Sure. Kinda? Was it what I had pictured for my feed? Honestly, not really. I failed and I’ll tell you why.
A) I have said this a million times. I’m a tornado. Nothing I do will get done 100% if it doesn’t feel good to me. Trying to twist something left that needs to go right does not work.
2) Sometimes, no matter how many filters you apply, certain photos don’t want to be a cooler tone so it just doesn’t look right.
3) I was starting to get anxious about it looking right and keeping the posts consistent, making sure they were all the same/similar colors that it wasn’t enjoyable. (My friends already call me “Insta-Jen” because I post so much, but this was becoming a worry!)
So…I’m sorry me. For making you feel like in order to have a cool Instagram account it has to match those who also have a “cool” Instagram account.
I would rather post a memory; a photo and a short summary of a trip I enjoyed and have it be true to life than have to spend 20 minutes adjusting levels in a photo editor. I am just not a photographer. And that’s ok.
Welcome back to my original, kinda blurry, colorful, chaotic, 85% of these are iPhone pictures Instagram gallery.
I feel better already!
