Over a week ago I deleted social media from my phone and walked away. It felt good and I felt inspired again. I began creating instead of stalling. Social media is so highly curated and can be so distracting that a time out is needed some times. I wanted to reevaluate why I use this tool and it's purpose, but also the direction I want it to go. I don't want to just throw a post up for the sake of posting. I want it to be intentional and I don't want to be noise in your feed. I've come to realize that if you're following me, and as I follow others, it's because hopefully you find my content engaging or interesting in some way, it piques your curiosity. As such, I want to keep within the integrity of that but I also want it to be real. An extension of who I am, not just some version of what I could be. As I evolve, what I post will too but I don't want it scattered. Already I've noticed a theme that I want to incorporate for the next year and it's being Intentional. This is part of it. Intentional with my posts, engaging with my community, who I follow, my why's, how I use social media and so on. Social media should be fun and social and not overwhelming. As we segue into Autumn, this makes for the perfect time to slow down and reevaluate how I can provide value and show up purposefully in the world.
