Hello, I took a must needed break from social media through the summer. I am back and want to share why I took the break and what I learned. It was around my birthday in May. My life was stressful and I was not intentional in my actions. I just reacted to everything. Mindfulness wasn’t in my actions. I was reacting day to day to people, events, and news from my head not my heart. So, I had to stop.
During the summer I took time to reevaluate my life. I started therapy and began writing in my journal again. I learned that I was such a people pleaser and codependent that my life was absorbed with others needs. My needs were not even known to me.
So, I began looking at what my heart needed and wanted. I found that I needed to be by the ocean and I hadn’t been lately.
I also became aware that I wasn’t stopping and noticing the beauty around me.
I spent time with family and friends.
I also began writing again and hope one day to have a biographical fiction to publish.
I learned from this hiatus from social media and my unintentional life that I miss a great deal when I react instead of being present and let my heart lead me. When I do that I can appreciate so much in my life every day.
I will be writing here more but I will make sure it is all from my heart not my head. As Gary Zukav said, “The longest journey we will make is from our head to our heart.”
