This week I became a little down due to all the negativity arising in news stories across social media platforms. There are a plethora of deep-seated issues coming up to heal right now, both on the micro and macro levels. Sometimes it can all become too much to handle. We as humans aren’t wired to take in this much negativity without being dragged down ourselves.
So I’m doing a #SocialEnlightenment experiment. I unsubscribed this morning from a number of channels, unfollowed those I no longer resonate with – and am going to do a 30-day social media cleanse. I’ll use the time to dedicate to my goals, my loved ones, and to manifesting what I’d like to see happen in the world. It will be interesting to see how I shift in these 30 days. It’s my prediction that, just like when I said “sayonara” to watching TV, I’ll have much better ability to focus on all the good things happening in this world.
I’m looking forward to this time because it will allow me more ability to shape my life rather than be shaped by outside events. We all have immense power inside us to shift into whatever version of ourselves we want to be, and to use this shift to help uplift lives. And we all deserve some time away to create something better!
I’ll keep you posted throughout the 30 days to let you know how stepping back is helping me “step up” into something better.
