When you currently don’t live the life that you wish you would, when you want to change something, but it needs more time or when you wish for something but think that it’s not possible for you to archive it – it’s always very easy to dream to be somebody else, have their life, their body, their house, their clothes, hair… whatever.
Online it looks like everybody is perfect, their relationships, their looks, they travel a lot, are always in a good mood and nothing could get in their way. We are surrounded by so much perfection that we feel so insecure with our own problems and insecurities.
And we sometimes forget, that only a part of life is shown online and usually mostly the positive sides, the ups, the happy smiling faces. But that’s not everything and we need to stop comparing ourselves to the perfect image that is shown on social media.
There is a positive way to use these platforms of people presenting themselves in a positive way – as a motivation and inspiration.
When we remove the comparison, guilty feeling and fear of not being enough from our thoughts we can start to listen, see, learn and grow when we choose to follow the right people.
There are so many awesome accounts on the internet that inspire us to create our own dream life and stop wishing to have somebody else’s life, to change ourselves to the better, work on ourselves and grow as a person.
People I get inspired by and learn from on the internet
Ellen Fisher is my number one! There is no other person I find as uplifting, inspiring, teaching and role modeling as her. She covers topics like veganism, healthy eating, sustainable living and mom life on her YouTube and Instagram.
On amoureuxee.de Katja blogs about her feelings and emotions, photography and sustainable and minimalistic fashion. She was the first one who made me think more about our overconsumption, producing less waste, buying less clothes and living more minimalistic and sustainable overall. Because of her texts, I started to think and change a lot of things that have been „normal“ to me for my entire life.
I currently love watching vlogs and travel videos on YouTube to get inspired and look for some techniques that I could practice and use for my own travel videos in Australia. I think videos are even better to keep the memories and look back on than pictures so I want to start filming and hopefully capture some beautiful moments to look back on later. Vloggers and Travel Video Makers that I love are Carlos Costa, Jon Olsson, Jay Alvarrez, Sorellamore, Claire Michelle, Annie Tarasova, so hopefully you will see some video content soon!
