I sometimes miss life without social media. Without my phone. Without so many people jumping out at me like monkeys, trying to get my attention THIS VERY SECOND.
The internet is like, "OOOH OOO CLICK ME RIGHT NOW. THIS VERY SECOND. READ MY BLOG. READ MY POST. PAY ATTENTION TO ME. Everyone is jumping around, almost manic, trying to get you to give them a follow, a like, a click.
I'm not saying that social media is bad. I have social media ADD and can easily spend too much time giving too many clicks.
Since my sabbatical started in January, our family has donated over $1000 worth of stuff to the thrift store. We've been clearing out clutter almost every weekend. I've even taken everything off the walls in our living room. I culled my Facebook friends. I signed up for a mountaineering class. And, as part of my sabbatical detox, I'm taking a 4 week break from Instagram.
I love Instagram, but I also know that the purpose of my sabbatical is to unplug. Completely. I'll be back on Tuesday March 20. ✌️ .
the whole idea behind this shoot was to capture a dreamy photo of this cutie girl @sydwhit laying in marshmallows.
but i got some fun shots for a BTS video and it made the dreamy feel come to life.
whatchu guys think?
photo or video?
it’s so important to step away from your responsibilities to keep your sanity.
with whatever job you have, always find time to do what you love to keep your mind flowing in your own creative way.
