21 women with inspiring photos on Instagram – SCN Encourager

Every time I scroll through this listing on Mashable, I learn something new.

I better not wait much longer to learn more about Instagram!

Now, I’ll admit, at first I just kept opening up this article whenever I thought Cindy or one of our daughters might stroll by and notice what was on the screen of my laptop.

See? Ol’ dad cares about something other than sports, after all.

That was the plan.

But while my scheme failed miserably with them, the visuals in this recent Mashable article kept grabbing my attention.

And the brief captions which accompanied every photo added to their appeal.

They look so cozy… I couldn’t help wondering if they were conspiring against Barack in some way; the way wives and daughters are prone to do.

Poor guy.

I know the feeling.

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 8.00.04 PMThis photo of a fire taken by a proud female U.S. Park Service Firefighter stung me by its intensity.

I can’t imagine how the parents of this brave woman must feel.

The worries I have for my girls seem stupid in comparison.

I can see why the writer at Mashable wrote the headline that she did.

Inspiring and amazing sums it up well.

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 8.01.08 PMThis photo of a young woman “risking it all” by going up the side of a mountain also got me thinking.

If she was one of my daughters, this kind of hobby would probably have me buying Maalox by the barrel.

I could only hope that she wouldn’t ask me to “risk it all” myself by climbing just a few feet ahead of her to capture a good photo for her Facebook wall.

These are three of the 21 photos in the Mashable collection.

You’ll get a kick out of them, no doubt… particularly #14… which is totally do-able for you, me, and every other school communicator (even if you’re a guy!).

Obviously, if you’re a parent of a daughter, you’ll attach your own emotions the photos you connect with.

It can’t be helped.

I’m just glad that if my own daughters craved similar thrill-seeking adventures, I wouldn’t have to traipse about after them camera in hand.

Thank goodness we live in the “era of the selfie.”
