It’s sometimes difficult to stop and journal your life in social media.
I’ve been looking through my photos and cataloging them from my phone. There’s quite a “few” food images (over a hundred), gemstone pics (over a hundred) of new jewelry, nature pics I captured and yet haven’t posted. I’ve been wrapped up in doing that I haven’t had the time to share! Even right now, I’m heading out the door to get in some Yoga in the park and river swim! Yesterday at the gym I was reveling in how easy my burpees are compared to a year (years) ago! At this very moment, I feel guilt of not being ‘on time’ by writing this (smile) I just want to get ‘there’ and experience the water, the sun, take in the breath and energy of wherever I choose to be in the moment. I choose to be present!
So how does this translate into social media? There are two very different contrasting sides to me, one demands complete privacy and autonomy, while the other side wants to snapshot, click and capture every moment of life, the key is balance. Which I am most definitely seeking and embodying. I’ve heard and seen serious YouTuber Influencers speak on this subject and express how they are torn between the world of Social Media and their personal lives. There followers are in the high thousands and millions so I cant even imagine the pressure they must feel and yet I can relate on a much smaller scale.
In fact, I just finished (wrapping up) my International Business course which I got an A! My next class is Social Media and this very subject will be discussed and explored (at least by me)! Nevertheless, we must press on and I want to express extreme gratitude, love, and thankfulness.
Have a Beautiful, Bountiful, Beast Summer!
