I know…I’ve been MIA from posting my inner thoughts since June…JUNE, PEOPLE!
I got completely wrapped up in wedding plans; working to pay for those plans and then coaching my group of cheerleaders in between all the craziness life brings.
I finally have a moment to breathe!! And then life starts back when the New Year kicks in and it’s a never ending cycle.
I did want to pause for a moment and reflect. Not necessarily on the past “year” just because it’s now 2018 but just in general. Something that stuck out to me just last night was this:
Society nowadays stays so wrapped up in social media and how you appear to others on every platform the internet provides. Myself included.
I post quite often. About cheer, hair, Casey and anything else that I think “oh I have to show everyone this!” I love to use those outlets to brag on Casey and the many things he does for me. I genuinely feel he’s the best thing I’ll ever have in my life.
But I really had to stop and ask myself:
“When’s the last time you actually told Casey face to face you love and appreciate him? Not using social media to do it, using your words and verbally telling him?”
It really was almost like a slap in the face; a huge wake up call!
I think so many people get so wrapped up in the game of “who’s doing what”, using social media platforms to keep an eye on everyone else, we forget to look at ourselves and what’s going on in our own lives.
Take the time to express how you feel to others: face to face; write a letter; make a phone call. Step back from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and really communicate with people.
Time is short-don’t waste it with your face stuck in the internet. Come up for some fresh air every once in a while!
