Well, well, well… it’s been a long while since I’ve posted anything in Tumblr! What reminded me today about the importance of blogging about anything you want is this new app I have on my phone, TimeHop. It pretty much connects all your social media accounts and pulls from them each day. So 4 years ago today… blah blah blah.
It pulled blog posts from years ago, and even though those posts weren’t the brightest things, it helped me remind me and it helped me appreciate the importance of communicating how you feel. I think in today’s social media driven world, people often leave out the sad, not-so-great stories, and opt only to share the positives. But what people tend to forget, IMHO, is that the negatives shape who we are. They challenge our prior perspectives, and force us to grow.
I think it’s important to show that your life isn’t all rainbows and sunshine, but blizzards and cloudy days too. There have been a few times within the past couple months when I would second guess myself for posting something because I felt like people would judge me for ‘showing too much.’ Well, I’m going to try and change that!
Also because it’s super cool to look back and see how life was.
