My @CosmicGrape Instagram does not impress my teenage sons.
They have hundreds of Instagram followers. I have ten. I try not to let that bother me. They are a different generation. I cannot compare myself to them.
On the other hand, my husband who posted absolutely zero photos, has 25 more Instagram followers than I do. If success in social media is about collecting hundreds of LIKES and followers, then I suck.
My friend from Dallas sent me this photo of her, her friend, and YogaMike.
YogaMike and I are both Vinyasa Krama Yoga students. I found him on Instagram and followed him because I appreciated his mixture of humor and good instruction. I suggested to my girlfriend in Dallas that she check him out at the Equinox Studio. Her friend who is a member at the club invited her as his guest to the yoga class. Then suddenly the three of them are practicing yoga together and sending me a photo.
If social media is about putting yourself out there and connecting with people to create relationships that encircle the planet, then, in a cosmic way, I am successful.
