My Own Material

For today’s post, I was challenged to look through my old Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts and pick something that stood out to me and write what I think about it now.

. . .

So, I chose to look through my Instagram feed and, while scrolling through, my very first Instagram post stood out to me.

Here it is:

The comment under it, just said: “Smile”.

. . .

While thinking about how I feel about it now, I could only say: “I’m so glad this was my first Instagram post because it reminds me to always remember to smile, no matter what’s happening around me. Smiling is so much easier (and much more worth it) than being angry or upset at the world all the time.” And, just like the comment says, it’s simple; just Smile (one powerful word).

Just a simple smile can turn your whole day around!

. . .

And, also, while scrolling through my Instagram feed, I noticed how much it changed and evolved throughout the years.

From: Just random pictures I would find on the internet that seemed interesting.

To: Pictures I take on my own adventures.

It changed from, a random Instagram account, to, more of a traveling account.

It was very interesting to look back and see my own journey because it helped me see that I’ve come very far. And, it gives me hope that I will still keep going far.

. . .

So, now I challenge you to go through one of your social media feeds and find something that sticks out to you, OR, just look at your journey and notice how much your posts have changed over time. (Comment below with what you discovered).

Thanks for reading! I hope this inspired you to remember where and how you started, and to have faith and hope in your future.

Crave…

So, today’s post is a one-word prompt about the word “crave”.

. . .

So, it’s very late at night (this might be a short post) and I almost forgot to write today. And, the first things that came to my mind when I remembered that I had to write something for day 3 was: “I crave mac & cheese”.

. . .

I’m not exactly sure why this came to mind because mac & cheese isn’t really my favorite meal, but, I have been living in Chile for a few weeks now, and I think its’ simplicity, homey & comforting feel made me crave it.

This also made me realize that, when we travel, we usually crave the simple, little things from home.
And, when we are home, we crave/miss the simple, little adventures from our past/future travels.

Simple things really do make a difference!
Don’t overlook the little things!
Small things make more of an impact than you would think!

Thanks for reading this short & very late, but, hopefully, somewhat, insightful post!
