Country Girl - Time To Take a Break From Social Media?
Recently I've really pushed myself to keep creating more and more content and make it more creative and on more platforms. I have hopes, dreams and plans and sometimes it can be totally over whelming. Social media isn't one of those things that has an obvious path and sometimes people that create lovely imagery might not be growing at the same rate as someone else and it can all get a bit disheartening. So is it time for a 'holiday' a 'break' or to pack it all in.
I know plenty of people believe taking pictures and making 'videos about clothes' is the easiest thing in the world and lots don't see it as a job. So yes, its not a 9-5, instead its more a 9 - midnight. The ideas always whirring, the shooting done whenever and wherever possible, holidays? the perfect time to shoot new summer content. Im not the kind of person that does things just for a photo, I actually enjoy experiences, I live in the moment but I do feel the pressure to create imagery and videos. I love doing what I do, but I have come to a point of feeling exhausted, I think I need a break and whether or not this break is the end I havent yet decided. Im sure I will always have social media, because who doesnt? But two images a day for instagram, 2 videos a week on youtube and engaging on other peoples most days can take its toll. Now i don't feel sorry for myself, but happiness is my aim and I always want to create things that are made with happiness and excitement rather than pressure and stress.
So with this in mind - I will just be cutting down on my instagram in the next coming weeks. Whether this will free me up in my head and in fact I will actually just go back to enjoying my social media channels. Or whether I will love a break and perhaps it will spark some more ideas about where to take my creativity is also possible. But I thought I'd write it down now so its a little set in stone, very unfiltered and I hope people will take this as what it is. A girl with so many dreams and creative ideas but a girl that is tired and would love to get back the initial excitement and happiness from creating content I make. I would love to continue doing all of this full time but right now I need to chill and cut back a bit and I hope in the long run it will help me!!
