Autumn aesthetics, am I right?! Anyways, it’s been another busy week. I’ve been petsitting and getting ready for Halloween and Tim has been doing a lot of magic shows. ⚡️I’m hoping to go to a farm and explore a corn maze and get a pumpkin to carve before this month is over! I’ve also really been wanting to play around with some vlogging with our new equipment we just got (in prep for our Italy trip next year 🇮🇹), so if we do some extra fall stuff, I may do it to get some practice in! I’ll let you guys know!
Anyways…journeys have been on my mind today, so forgive the philosophical post. I just…think it’s hard, in this day and age, to be on social media as often as we are. It’s all comparison, cool photography skills for sure, but a lot of posing and pretending.
I took a break from Instagram for a few days and Facebook this week. Sometimes it’s nice to do that. Lately, I’ve found myself comparing myself to other travel bloggers, namely people who travel more often than I do.
It’s hard to see people who are constantly doing the things you want to do. We forget a lot of times though that people have had a journey in getting to where they are. It’s easy to sit back and want what they have and wish you were at that point, whether it’s with fitness goals, traveling, having a house or family, whatever.
I just want to say…I’ve been there too, on the daily. I just always want to be real and upfront with my readers. I admire the Instagrammers who are famous and can make that their lifestyle. I know that sometimes, people might envy my petsitting lifestyle and how I’m my own boss, but it’s not always a walk in the park, and I know it’s not for the people I compare myself to either.
That’s why I’m following my own path. Trying not to look sideways, just forward. ✌🏻 Hope you all are having a great weekend!
