The day has just started. Welcome the day with email and social media.
The middle of the day strikes, still stuck on pings and whatnot, keeping up with the tide of notifications, hoping for some magic.
My ‘getting away’ started since micro-dozes of the same old stuff has finally reached a saturation point. I’m sure this isn’t only me. Finally, I was happy to let go.
I believe social media can be insidious if we allow it to. It can breed the ‘perfect’ life and create a phantom of always trying to keep up with what everyone’s doing, trying to impress no more than ourselves, or trying to appear a little bit more alive than we already are.
I’m not saying we don’t use it all. I’m happy that we have such incredible means to communicate.
I’m just wondering that maybe before we scroll to oblivion or click that post button, we can do ourselves a favor by asking:
Is this valuable?
Maybe if we consider more often, we can truly connect. Or maybe staying quiet can create more satisfaction.
Our feelings of enjoyment, indulgence, or gratitude don’t equate to posting or likes. Owning the feeling in itself is magic. Bask on what’s amazing to you without the need to capture everything at every moment. Take it all in for yourself because you can. Enjoy the sunset, the breeze, the food, the people.
Celebrate your consciousness.
And just be.
