100 Days of Writing – Day Eighty-Two

It’s been a week since my hiatus from social media began and all is well….

The season of Lent began last Wednesday and since the point in time, I have visited any social media pages. I’ve done this before and it would seem this time around it’s been much easier to stay away from the temptation to scroll those pages.

I’ve found myself writing in my journal a lot more, which was to be expected. I used one whole journal for the month of February and have started yet another this week. I have found it would seem that my desire to write has increased with the reduction of time devoted to social media sites.

I started another interim teaching position the first full week of February and that too has been a good “distraction” to my addiction to spending hours each week on Facebook and the like. I have found quite a few new sites that I’ve been able to use with my students and of course, have also been planning lessons and grading student work.

I recently went through some major changes in my personal life just before the end of 2022 and that’s required a lot of soul-searching on my part. While social media sites many times give me a lot of inspiration and motivation, I have found multiple other sources that seem to fit the bill as well. I also have friends who are willing to share humorous and thoughtful memes with me and that’s been a help to keep my spirits and sense of humor alive and well.

So one week in, all is well. I will continue to branch out and am planning on starting back to my walking routine this next weekend. I also have visited quite a few antique malls and have rekindled my interest in antique advertising.

One last thing,,,,I’d always do my FB posts first thing when I got up in the morning. While it didn’t take a great deal of time, I have been able to use that five to ten minutes productively. I’ve started to practice a positive meditation that I actually look forward to each morning. And that’s gotta be a good thing.
