For 2018, I decided to not partake in social media as my resolution. I am not sure why we do resolutions but if there is ever a good time to really dedicate yourself to something moral and challenging, its in the new year.It is more rewarding, more joyful, more meaningful, more freeing than you could’ve ever imagined.
Most of the time people want to better themselves and make resolutions as fitness goals, which is a great thing to do when it’s needed but year after year it turns into a self confidence issue. So that is part of the reason I jumped into the ice cold water of no social media. NO Facebook, no Instagram, no Twitter, no snapchat stories, nada. Refraining from social media has been like the polar bear swim at church camp; you get up early, you are tired and cold, you just want to do what’s warm, known and comfortable, but you get up anyway because you have a slight hope it’ll be fun and rewarding. GUESS WHAT? It is more rewarding, more joyful, more meaningful, more freeing than you could’ve ever imagined. The water is actually better than being outside.
So with my intentions to go on and on about how the ways social media is bad, how I had a great year without it but also was challenged. I don’t think I will. I think I’ll let you decide if this is something that speaks to your heart.Happy New Years and Cheers to all the perfectly imperfect, not-social-media worthy moments, memories, and pictures of 2018.
I hope for a fruitful 2019. My New Years Resolution? Read the entire bible from start to finish. oh, and wash my produce…What will your resolution be?
