Taking a Year Off From Social Media

TAKING A YEAR OFF FROM SOCIAL MEDIAHappy beautiful Mid-August Sunny Sunday everyone!

I will dive straight into what has been on my mind for quite some time now.

It all began with MySpace. Ahhhhh… the early days of social media .. The never ending hours of searching for the cutest background to update your profile with. The MySpace frenzy ended a few years later. Then my relationship with Facebook began in 2009, and Instagram I think 2012. Deleted my FB I had for 8 years this year (downloaded all my photos), and opened another account couple months later just to keep up with local news and stuff going on back home on the East Coast. Created Twitter twice and deleted it. Opened snapchat for one hour and deleted my account. I know… I’m all over the place. Like really woman??! Make up your mind.

Anyways, I’ve already taken a Social Media sabbatical in March of 2017 – June 2017 for FB at least.

Social Media has been a blessing and a curse in many ways to day the least. As I’m sure it has been to many people.

But, the time has come for me to say goodbye to FB and Instagram for the next 365 days . Or maybe forever. Who knows… Imma stick with one year for now. I will keep my two social media accounts open. I will not be logging in, replying to messages, any requests, and posting. If anyone needs to get a hold of me, you can get in touch with me through my CONTACT page via my blog.

These next 365 days I will be focusing on a few things and one of them being my blog/ writing and creating. I will be focusing on my mind, body and spirit and world in which I live in.

I could get into the many aspects, political and drama reasons as to way I am doing this, but I will not.

I want to live in the present, in the moment. This is all I have.

“Life can be found only in the present moment. The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life.”  -Thich Nhat Hanh-
