"When your life is on course with its purpose,
you are your most powerful."
~ Tony Robbins
I recently took a break from facebook (and still am, indefinitely) because I felt like I was bombarded with so much mental monkey chatter that I couldn't hear my own thoughts. Social networking can be fun and entertaining but I noticed I was procrastinating on my dreams. I'd argue that the very vehicle that's suppose to make us feel connected will ultimately make us lonelier in the end, if we don't cultivate a sense of self or act upon our inner calling. Must our self-worth be subject to how many "likes" we received in a day? What about logging into our own lives? What about nurturing our souls? What about cultivating relationships with real human beings?
This break is helping me focus, truly focus, on what matters most. I need to put my energy in pursuing the important stuff. I deserve a life that's valuable and meaningful. We all do :). Let's organize, de-clutter, simplify and be wise with our time. I personally want to be more proactive, not reactive. And I believe that there's a healthy, authentic way to live a creative life (that doesn't require me to constantly check my phone or computer).
As a wife, mom, and artist, I have numerous unfinished projects on my plate. One of them was to finally finish a special art journaling project. Enjoy a peak into the artist heart. My artist heart.
