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...(and by this...I mean all of the things that you are substituting in your life for what you really need and what your heart really yearn for.....) all the artificial and fraudulent and phony (like doing the things you want to do instead of reading about other people doing those things....eating a piece of fruit instead of packaged junk food....breathing the air outside instead of staying stuck inside....letting yourself rest when you are tired instead of drinking an energy drink......taking time for the people you love instead of just thinking about it.........)..............and make room for what's real.
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!
