What a week 😍 As you'll probably have noticed, I have been super quite on social media since being in Vegas. Initially, it was a result of my phone breaking- and after the initial panic, and trying to use Daniel's phone to keep up with our travels on Snapchat, I took it as a sign of a (much) needed digital detox 😁 Here's a few things I learned:
- Being present with family and friends is LIFE. No beeps, no flashing notifications, no distractions- just good old-fashioned chats without loosing attention & saying 'what' every 5 seconds.
- It reinforced what I want to use social media for- to educate really. Followers mean nothing in the grand scheme of things (not being ungrateful here!) but even though there were no/minimal posts, business actually continued to boom. And it was really nice to know that we've created a business that isn't reliant on selfies, followers and snaps of food!
- I also learned that there are somethings worth keeping sacred. I never share family/friends on any platform and I was actually about to share a video of my Mam at the airport when she got the surprise of her life- and then it dawned on me- these precious moment's should be kept just that 👌
- We've been to Vegas 3 times in 12 month's and it's the first time I've seen the Bellagio watershow with my eyes and not through a phone screen 🙈 How bad is that!
I was time-rich for the first time in a longggg time. I was more efficient with work, more attentive to Daniel and my family, and trained harder with more intensity- although I am always pretty good to leave my phone down with training. I realised how much shit I tended to post- do people really benefit of seeing a Starbucks coffee and a pic of my laptop?! Nope!
I have 100's of Snaps to reply too ,which I will always make time for but going forward, and I will continue to share lots of info here and there but the 'wherever you are, be all there' mantra is coming with me ❤
Disconnect to reconnect ❤❤❤
