Eh this post isn’t really necessary, but typing my thoughts out and some self-manifestation seems to always help me more than I realize. I feel it’s time to refocus and recharge on what’s important for the next month or so. I haven’t published anything on here in so long because I’ve been so all over the place. Lots of overtime at work in the lovely world of nursing, back in college full time as I work on my goal of one day working in counseling/psychotherapy for children, moving from apartment to a home, focusing on building myself up again, working on healing and acceptance and navigating this world as an orphan of sorts, overcoming some mental health hurdles, learning to be grateful for what I do have, and spending whatever time I can with those who have been there through every high, low, busy, and lazy point in my life. I have such a love/hate relationship with social media due to the time I allow it to take away from me.
I have decided to attempt at least a month free of socials for a little mental health restart or a refresher, if you will.
*fingers crossed that I last longer than just a few days off. Every other time I’ve attempted this I have failed miserably lmao*
Maybe posting this and being honest with the world will make me more determined to reach this goal???
I don’t expect to be a brand new person at the end of this little no social media experiment, but I do think it will help open my eyes to certain aspects of my life, and hopefully help me focus on the things in life that do matter and things that need to be worked on.
I really do believe we get so soaked into social media, because it is visually this fun and flawless land of make believe and play time. The perfect life. The perfect body. The perfect family. Perfect magazine worthy photos of perfect trips.
Why though? Perhaps we don’t want to focus on the negative or stressful parts of our lives (which ultimately makes them even more of an issue over time).
Or maybe we secretly strive for this “perfection” that we view for hours each day… Hell, we view it so much, I am starting to believe that we forget perfection is not only unachievable, but unrealistic.
per·fec·tion/pərˈfekSH(ə)n/Learn to pronouncenoun
- the condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects.
If you think about it, life is all about flaws and defects. Life is ultimately an adventure of learning how to face, understand, or accept those flaws or defects mentioned in that definition. This is how we learn, and this is how we grow.
Anyways, wish me luck 🍀
