I was walking in a beautiful snowshoes trail close to home with Balto. He was behind me, sniffing squirrel stuff. I thought well, this is a great spot for a photo. I turned around, and I saw this golden light on the trees. I layed on my knees and called Balto. He came to me, and I took this shot. As simple as this, one of the most beautiful picture I took so far. No staging, no big editing. Just the magic of the forest after a snowstorm, with the golden hour sun on the trees.
Big talk this morning. It took me 1 1/2 year to get to 7800 follower. I gained "only" 2000 in the last 6 months. I see so many beautiful account, starting their dog's IG and getting to 30k in six month. I see other gorgeous one, growing slowly but surely. I dont know how it works, and some time jealousy can come fast.
There is also a new source of anxiety coming up. I'm beyond thankful for the amazing company and shop that sponsor and trust us, because I truely love and believe in their products, but some times I'm not really sure of the "influence" we really have, and im scared of disapointing them.
And like for this beautiful leash and collar from this big company I like so much. I was so happy when they wrote to me. I thought it was impossible that they considered Balto and my photos. It was a dream come true. Then I saw all those big (but still incredibly beautiful) account, being in the same boat as me. And instead of being proud to be with them, I was disapointed. In my head I could have a feature to finally help me reach 10k. Nop, not this time, again. I couldn't stop thinking about it, and it's frustrating me because I don't want to, but this feeling is stronger than me.
But thank god I have Balto, who really dont care about all this IG stuff. And when I take a picture like this one, I forget about it all too. It comes back to all the fun stuff this is about. Because for me IG shouldn't be about who's having the better life. I don't want it anymore. Its about inspiring each other to do better. Their shouldn't be follower goals. Their should only be me, Balto and my camera, and some fellow enjoying it.
You beautiful Cornell, you. || Growing up, one of the stories I’d read over and over again was “The Secret Garden.” I like thinking of this spot as a secret escape, but it’s a tad bigger than a garden.
Grateful for this group heart!
Graduated three years of this intensive spiritual self realization course.
Group that meditates together stays together❤️🙌🏻. Big moments of self reflection that kicked my A$$, but thanks to this group heart they supported me to keep going! Big love to our teacher, Gale Haas!
#meditation#awakethesoul#awakenings#groupmeditation what will I do on Wednesday’s without all of you ?!?! #waa
It’s been 1,5 years that I’ve been exploring Europe on my own. Driven by a mission I gave myself to bring people together through music, and the inner quest to find out what I really wanna do with my life. Did I succeed?
Well at least I can say I found a way that is worth the hassle and puts moments of discomfort in perspective.
I like to dream big, and set myself unrealistic goals. Firstly because we almost always fatally underestimate our own power. You can probably do a lot more than you think. So find out. Second where is the challenge it you know you can do it easily?
To put in the words of a friend of mine. If your dreams don’t scare you they are not big enough.
The hippie trail was a 6,000 miles overland route from Europe and into Asia. The trail continued to India where you most likely head to Goa. Kathmandu was the ultimate destination. They do not call themselves “hippies” and preferred the term “freaks”.
