I was doing so well writing a blog. I was all consistent and everything. I am not sure where it fell to shit, but there ya go. It has been a while, but now I am back baby! It is 2019! Crazy to think the holidays are behind us, and we are well into January.
I had company for almost three weeks during Christmas, and it felt like I just dropped off the face of the world. I didn't do a whole lot in my business including scrolling Facebook. I think it has lost the appeal it once had. So I find myself with a lot of time to fill doing something else.
Funny how such little things like Facebook can suck the time away. How much time are you on Facebook or any other social media site for that matter? A lot I bet. We say there isn't enough time in the day to do this or that (exercise, prepare healthy meals, read, unwind), but then we scroll and scroll and scroll some more on social media. And you know what? Sometimes scrolling makes you feel bad or you begin comparing yourself to others. I mean look at all the posts. They show people's selfies depicting these lives that are in all honesty, probably not half as awesome as they are portrayed. It is madness really.
I have set the intention to not be on Facebook as much. I post my wares, then I hop right on off. I might do a live, and interact a bit, but that is it. And guess what? I feel pretty okay. I don't feel like I am missing anything at all. I actually have been practicing my Spanish on a cool app. I have been writing more, dreaming bigger for myself and other stuff.
I am not telling you to get off social media. Not at all. If you love it, and it fills you up ; have at it. But if you find that you are using the 'ol "I don't have enough time in my day" excuse, maybe take a look at where you are allowing your time and energy to be sucked.
Have a good one! Talk soon.
