New art – “Sunshine on a foggy day” – January 13, 2013
So I took a break from Facebook today.
I realized as I read through the posts that appeared on my page that many of them just weren’t doing it for me.
I was getting annoyed by some,
bored by some,
and one even made me angry.
Yes, there were a few lovely ones that made me smile or nod in agreement,
but for the most part,
the posts on Facebook today made me feel anything but joyful.
I spend a lot of time on Facebook everyday.
I think I am looking for ways to feel connected to others, as I spend a lot of time alone.
But if I go to a pretty hollow place to find connection, doesn’t that mean that the connections I make are pretty hollow too ?
Well, it felt like that today.
So I stepped away.
I am not writing any lines in the sand or anything but I am taking today to try and find more meaningful connections…
My stepping away from Facebook made me think about my blog too.
I have gained so much from having this place to share bits of myself, my art and to give myself and others positive messages about life in general.
I love my blog and I am very proud of it.
And I love my Blogland friends so much !
I do miss the days when there was a lot more comments going back and forth or the days when the comments were a lot richer.
Facebook has taken some of that away, I know. Instant gratification and in the moment stuff is pretty powerful.
All of that said, I will continue to write and share here, and visit my blog friends at their Blogland homes.
And as for Facebook, we shall see. But a scaling back is definitely in order !
Happy Monday, Beautiful Ones !
I hope you have an awesomely full week !
