Social media... It's a funny one, isn’t it? I personally have a love/hate relationship with it and every now and again I get what I like to call the Insta ick…
It can be easy to become disillusioned with the whole idea of it. Which at times I feel is moving away from it's true purpose. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a great platform for self-development, and the building of connections. Yet in the same breath, it can also be a tool for social nepotism and manipulation of figures.
I won't lie, for a little while I became frustrated with it all. I wondered if it was really worth it. But then I thought about... it and I realised that through all the games there is good. I have a truly amazing community of genuine people on here and you are the ones that I really wish to focus on.
The one thing I do love about my time away is that it’s given me the time and space to get clear... At the very core of me, I am here with a purpose... one that has only strengthened in that time.
It's finally become clear that I must do my best to help others find true purpose and meaning in their lives. I think at the back of my mind, I have always known this but suddenly things have become much more obvious! I now find myself wondering how I didn't see this so clearly before? The whole concept of artful living really is about existing in core alignment with one’s true purpose in life. So, I may have been gone for a little while… sometimes you need the break… I think it's healthy after all … But I’m back now. Back with a clearer message and a newfound passion and respect for what I do. I realise that I may sound a little full of it, but that is really not my intention. I’ve never been in a position where I have been able to say that I RESPECT the work that do! LOVE yes… but respect no…. For some reason, I’ve never really been that sure… because I've never really been that clear. The more I step into my own purpose I realise that true confidence does indeed arise from knowing. I wonder how many of you have taken a break from Instagram in the past? Did you find the time off helped you reconnect and get clearer on your creative path? Comments below please!
