Today I’m talking with Jess Sproat about Instagram vs. Reality. We also talk about making time for the outdoors and finding time for solo adventures. Jess is also the co-founder at TrailCollectiv. We talk about how she became involved in this awesome project and what you can do to join TrailCollectiv.
I had such a great time talking with her about what regular life with a toddler looks like, despite what Instagram may portray. I love that she gives the reminder that even with a lot of followers, she lives a normal life with big toddler feeling and moments of figuring out how to make time for getting outside. Before I began Outdoorsy Families, I was a pretty casual user of Instagram, with my private account. I never really understood when people talked about comparisons on Instagram or Instagram vs. Reality. Mostly because I wasn’t really that engaged in others success on Instagram. Now that I am on it each day and trying to grow, I have felt moments of comparing myself to others. I’ve even wondered if I am “good enough” to share tips for getting outside. My conversation with Jess was a good reminder for me that we each have a story to share – and that we each have a normal life outside of Instagram.
