'My Bonnie is over the ocean,
My Bonnie is over the sea,
My Bonnie is over the ocean,
Oh, bring my back my Bonnie to me' 🎼🎤 Not that I have a Bonnie. Nor is he over the sea. But this song came to mind when I took a picture of this beautiful path down to the ocean.
Have I recently been to the sea?
Is this a picture taken when I last have been at the sea?
No, not really.
What is it then?
It's a picture, hanging in my bedroom. I have actually never been at this exact path down to the sea. Nor do I know where it is.
Then why do you post it?
1. because I like looking at this picture and imagining myself going down that path, feeling the sand between my toes, feeling the wind in my hair, closing my eyes, enjoying the sun on my face and the salty smell of the ocean, listening to the sound of the waves coming in to the shore.
2. because I needed to remind myself that not everything I see on Instagram is real. We tend to post only the bright sides of our lives because who wants to see is upset or sad? Some of the bright side might not even be real. Imagine I would have just leave this picture here with the caption 'throwback to last summer holiday' - it would have taken some effort so find out that this is actually a picture anyone can buy on Amazon.
Ok, all I wanna say is this: question things! Don't take everything you see as an unfiltered truth! Filter!
But first and foremost: live your own life and set your own standards of happiness and gratitude! 🙌
