Wow, I better hurry. It is THE award night.
So, I have really done well with my eating lately. The WW app is all that. I have also done a somewhat decent job at reading my Bible, not as much as I should, but better than I was doing. I have also managed to keep up with my devotional. In the morning, or late night I go to these sources for inspiration or to have a “conversation” with God. Blogs on WordPress inspire me as well to either write more, be a better person, or to reflect on my life.
The funny thing is that Instagram is where I connect the most with people mentally and spiritually. I mean I love WordPress and Facebook and other social sites. But, Instagram provides great quotes, and people who are redefining their lives and people who are getting their start.
It is so awesome to log on to Instagram in the morning before I have spoken a word to anyone and read such rawness, power, passion and fire. Many of these people are marketing themselves, but there are a fair number of them that have that x factor. That something special that makes you excited to be affiliated with them and be “friends” with them.
I am so excited to be a part of their journey. I have bought e-books, hardcover books, and shared their profiles. I have commented or hearted (liked) their posts. I have tried to be supportive, because these particular people have the drive and the guts to do what they love and to talk about it all of the time.
The ones that are special, I do not mind reading 10 posts from a day. It is not like Twitter, where nothing super interesting can be said except in little tiny phrases. The pictures, words of wisdom and baring of their souls on this social media site has motivated me and made me be a cheerleader even in my times of doubt or aggravation.
So, hats off to these pioneers. But more importantly, hats off to the people who have provided IG to us. It is a jewel in the rough of all of the different formats that people can communicate on electronically. I wish I would have paid it more attention a long time ago.
Happy Oscars and Chinese New Year!
Here’s hoping my girl Meryl clinches an Oscar! And, hopefully Grand Budapest Hotel, the Imitation Game, Magic in the Moonlight and Selma deserves to be at the top! Love Ava Duvernay:) Proud of Jen Anniston too by the way!
