...it has been quite the journey! A test of will. A fight with my ego. A necessity of finding balance. 39 days I completely stayed away from social media.
Day 1 was a relief, then the days that ensued plagued me with jealous intrigue and restlessness, two chararacterisitics that are not of my nature. My fear of being away was only in regards to my career. The need to be connected and relevant, a pure battle of ego. However, by the end of week one, I surrendered and trusted the process.
41 days have passed and I am surprised that I find absolutely no rush to jump back in. I feel more present than ever and am no longer reaching for my phone at any still moment. I am once again observing people around me. I am more aware of the little beautiful things that surround me, from a flower growing from a sidewalk to the observation of laughter between two people in a restaurant. It has made me more awake and grateful.
Despite it all, I carry no ill judgement towards social media. The truth is, the dysfunction of my use was rooted from me. I do understand the power of connection through Facebook and Instagram. It is always a joy to see what my friends and family are up to and I have gained precious friendships from social media itself. Personally speaking, I feel that we are all connected, with or without social media. Energetically, as one.
Here's to seeing you soon, I have missed you all.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #spiritual #faith #socialenvy #grace #believe #coexist #spirituality #trust #peace #calm #mind #soul #destiny #meditation #life #meditate #socialmedia #socialmediadetox #yellowstone #montana
