Hello lovely people, some of you may already know what #everypagematters is about. But in case there are some new faces i´ll tell you what i have shared before.
For a long time, i refused to join instagram cause i thought it was just a waste of time. But after some people persuaded me (thank you) i decided to give it a try, and a year later i can say i have changed my mind. I love instagram. I love how through it i got to know so many talented artists, encouraging organizations, as well as get to know more about my friends through their pictures and words.
I am aware of how social media can be used to give the image of a “perfect life” none of us actually have, or to struggle with self confidence and comparison. But i also think social media can be used in a very positive and inspiring way. But unfortunately, when i thought about my own account i realized it´s normally focused on what i eat, do, and just “me me me” things. Even though that is a big part of the app, i also want my account to be a real celebration of the people that surround me.
I like to think of the world as one big book formed by millions of pages; each one with the name of a person written down on it. But, did you ever read a book where some pages are missing?? I´ve read some and it is very frustrating and disappointing, it just feels so… INCOMPLETE. Yep, that´s exactly how the world would be if we took away one of its pages (or individuals). The book would not be complete. In order to enjoy and understand a story we have to read every one of its pages, for every person plays a different and important role to form the whole story.
So every now and then i´ll try to share with you different “pages” of this lovely book i call “World”, via instagram and here on my blog. That will give me the chance to take a moment to appreciate and recognize the beauty in others as well as making them see all the virtues i see in them (that maybe they haven´t noticed yet). I´ll be using the hashtag #everypagematters to emphasize how every story is precious for the world. So if you also have an instagram and want to show your love for people or encourage other ones, feel completely free to use it too. I would be utterly charmed. Let the world know the people you love, the people you encounter with, their stories, their passions…. their UNIQUE beauty.
