I am almost half-way through my social media rehab and I am loving it more than I ever thought I would. I thought it would be harder…I thought I would miss things more….I thought I would miss OUT more. What I have found is what I’ve been missing all along…..what I was looking for that seemed to be hiding, but really it was right in front of me. Things that are REAL, things that matter, things that will still matter in 100 years or 1,000 years, things that fill me with joy and make my soul sing deep-down happy songs.
I have a LONG blog post planned about those things, but today’s not the day for it. (Soon, I promise.) Today I have a wish for you….my wish is that you will be able push away all the fakes…all the counterfeits…all the artificial and fraudulent and phony (and by this I mean going outside for a walk instead of reading about it….eating a piece of fruit instead of junk food….hugging someone in person instead of intending to….taking a nap for energy instead of drinking an energy drink…letting yourself BE EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE instead of trying to force yourself to be someone else…)………and make room for what’s real. (because the real stuff is where it’s at, my friends!)
My wish is that you find some of the same incredible things that I’ve found…things that are so simple, you’ll be amazed that they make you feel like you’re treating yourself to something special. Things like:
Soulful, meaningful conversation.
Spending time doing something you really REALLY love to do….for the sake of really REALLY enjoying it!
Making someone laugh…really…hard.
Taking a little time to PLAY!
Spending time with people who really get you…who support you…who lift you up…and being that person for them too.
If you do it right, a treat can REALLY feel like a treat.
So there it is, dearies….there’s my wish. Do something nice for yourself today. Love the girl inside you and treat her to something real and lasting today.
Love you all so much!
