The thing I love about Instagram is the way it allows me to capture and really just take notice of all those little moments of happiness, whether it be something as simple as enjoying a nice cup of tea or just appreciating the fact that the sun is shining.
It's great compiling these collages at the end of every month, looking back and remembering all those nice moments :)
Having said that though, it's so easy to get caught up looking though photos and thinking someone has this "perfect life", when in reality that may not be the case.
While there were a lot of fun times this month (the highlight being my birthday), there were also some not so great moments. Obviously, those aren't the kind of things I can (or want) to photograph and record, but I just don't want to give the impression that everything is "rainbows and butterflies" all the time.
I just choose to take notice of all the good things, and when you take the time to do that and be grateful for that, it really is incredible how it can change your outlook on life and the way you react to things.
I've only really started to fully see what a difference this (being actively grateful) can make, but it's huge!
Anyway, that's enough cheesy rambling for a while!
Lots of Love
