I have a confession to make. This Oscar acceptance speech really got to me. It literally made me pick up my phone, scroll to the top of my call log and actually see how long I talked to my mother earlier that day when she called. 2 minutes. Mind you, she called at the exact moment that I sat down at my desk to start being “productive” – I tend to jam pack my weekends with writing & reading goals to balance out the full time work schedule with my writing dreams. And yes, after our 2 minute call I was productive for a good 15 minutes. Until I grabbed my phone that I could see out of the corner of my eye, and started to scroll instagram.
I can’t tell you how much I love instagram. Really. It is such an incredible source of inspiration to me. Creativity seems to flow from the screen into my hands…it’s my krytonite. Until a line is crossed. Until I choose instagram over people. People that I love with all of my heart.
Needless to say, I called home the next morning. And came clean to my mom that I chose instagram over her.
