Well, I’m not sure about better than ever but it is a start!
I know it has been quite a while since I have written and shared on this blog but this last month I also chose to disconnect from the social media world. I deleted Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat from my phone.
I found I was spending too much of my “down” time just scrolling through my different feeds. When I realized this, I was upset with myself because I know life is more then looking at my phone.
Our world is so involved in social media and while I understand it is a way to connect, stay in the know and to grow businesses it’s overwhelming. Throughout this month I have paid attention to when I have been around friends and family. Noticing that when silence occurs the phone’s come out even if you just looked at it two minutes ago.
From this social media hiatus I was also able to spend quality time relaxing, creating memories with those closest to me and celebrating some really large milestones happening in the lives around me. I also spent less time thinking negative thoughts and being hard on myself for not being, looking, acting like anyone else.
While I appreciate social media and will continue to use it and share my story and be in contact with the world I will continue to work and limit its use in my life. This hiatus has also helped me come up with new ideas to write about and has helped make decisions on how I want to move this blog forward. I don’t know that I will post as consistently but my new goal is to share a new post at least once a month.
I look forward to reconnecting with everyone!
