I used to have a great memory,
but for some reason, I don’t have anymore. But… I remember this. How was life before Instagram.
We used to care more about how many times we went out with our family and friends, about how many afternoons we spent laughing and going in town, sometimes just playing around and counting the seconds to dinner time.
We had MSN to keep our contacts and Myspace to store our photos. Life was more boring (we need to say it), but more relaxed. We didn’t plan on any flat lay shot on our hamburger or pizza just served and we didn’t want to take any posed picture showing our latest outfit, instead our group picture was the favourite one among us.
Sometimes, there were no pictures at all. We were driving in the lazy summer afternoons towards nowhere, just knowing we were happy and without any stress. We didn’t need to grow our following base, we didn’t have a following or know what was a following. We were just content with 30 friends we had on Myspace.
But of course, we needed something more. I love Instagram, don’t get me wrong. Just those times were like that. And these times are full of opportunities, that sometimes lead us towards a better future. We become more skilled, more professional, we travel more, we fear less and sometimes behind the screen, we like to meet people.
So it’s not everything lost.
(Also love how Instagram is good to promote good causes!)
