“How much of you is in your Instagram feed?”
she asked me as she scrolled down my feed. The answer to the question was simply yet complex. These paradox subjects have always had a way of intriguing me, getting my attention and making me ask: how? And why? The later being one that I ask myself on a daily basis.
It can also be one of the reasons why I’ve always gone my own way, not to say I can’t take directions, but I question them. There isn’t one way of doing things, and most importantly; the reason how and why it’s done needs to correlate with my basic fundamentals.
Speaking if fundamentals, showing followers on Instagram my morning routine is just one of many that connects to these fundamentals. Life can be lived in so many ways, it comes down to being at a place where you are happy with yourself. When we are in a great place with oneself, we can be better people for others.

Why aren’t you?
