A love story
I’ve never been a big fan of social media.
But these days, I seem to be falling in love with Instagram.
My love affair with Instagram started 100 days ago.
When I decided that I would try to use social media to drive traffic to my website.
My plan was simple.
Create and upload one image a day to Instagram.
Build an audience and watch the traffic explode on my website.
Well, to make a long story short:
100 posts later,
My plan has not worked (yet).
But I’m far from being disappointed.
Because I’m blinded by love.
And it feels good!
Love lessons learned
Amazing things happen when you’re in love.
Here are some of the lessons my love affair with Instagram has taught me:
Love requires attention
There are so many beautiful people sharing so many beautiful things.
So keep your eyes and mind open.
Be inspired by what you see.
Let others know you love their work.
Love has no room for jealousy
Likes, shares, and follows are nice.
But being creative is not about scoring points.
Or comparing your work to others’.
What really counts is your:
Love is the absence of fear
Fear of the unknown, failure, and being laughed at are illusions.
Fear is only untapped potential energy.
So embrace it,
And transform it into a creative superpower:
No risk no fun!
Love is action
You make a positive difference by doing.
Being there for others.
Sharing your creative genius.
Giving your best.
Made with love
Here are a few of my favorite images that I have shared on Instagram:

Love your journey
You never know where your creative journey will take you.
Because it’s all about the process.
You just need to**:
- Close the gap between thinking and doing
- Create every day
- Show your work
- Explore new mediums
- Create more
- Push your limits
- Never give up
It just takes time.
In the end, love wins
Because love makes you feel good!
