How Instagram and Twitter help me be a better person

Good morning Loves.  Before you ask, yes the Justin Timberlake concert was amazing!

Ok moving on…I’m what you would call a loner – and you can call me that because it doesn’t bother me.  I wake up, go to work at my 9 to 5, come home, spend time with my boyfriend and then work on my freelance business.  That’s about it – welcome to my life.  Now before you think that I’m some type of closet freak let me explain…I just like to be alone.  It lets me do what I want when I want and I don’t have to explain it to anyone (except you of course).

I’m a good person, but I could be better

I do have friends, four friends to be exact and we do catch the occasional movie or concert (like Justin Timberlake on Saturday night) but other than that I pretty much keep to myself and I like it that way.  I don’t live near my family so that eliminates the need to attend family barbeques and birthday parties.   I like to keep to myself because I’m extremely busy working two jobs which doesn’t leave a lot of time for social engagements.

I am lucky that my boyfriend is the same way, we would prefer to order in than go out to a restaurant and we would rather lay out on our balcony reading a book than spend the day at an overcrowded beach.  But that’s just us.

On the weekends I leave my apartment for a few hours to run my weekly errands like grocery shopping and picking up a few things at the pharmacy then I come right back home and relax or work.

Social media helps me keep in touch

I spend a lot of time on social media, Twitter to be exact.  I am obsessed with Twitter and love catching up with friends all over the country.  I’ve made some great friends through blogging and we keep in touch via Twitter.  I also get my headlines from Twitter and love it because I don’t have to read all about a subject if I don’t want to, I can just get the overview.

I feel the same way about keeping in touch with my friends.  Twitter is an effortless way to keep in touch without being overly engaged in a huge conversation or committing to a long weekend.  It’s also a great way to share photos…or so I thought until I joined Instagram last week. Other bloggers, like The Small Business Blog, have found similar benefits.

All things pretty are on Instagram

Last week I signed up for Instagram and I absolutely love it…maybe even more than Twitter.  I know it’s going to sound crazy but Instagram helped me become a better person – honestly.  I used to be so concerned with my schedule and so busy with work that I just never stopped to enjoy the beautiful things around me.

Now when I go out on Saturdays I walk with my head up and look around.  I appreciate everything our wonderful world has to offer because I’m eager to take a photo and share it on Instagram.  Is that weird?
