Be present. Make love. Make that tea or coffee that you crave. Avoid small talk, but embrace conversation. Buy a plant, water it. Make your bed. Make someone else’s bed. Have a smart mouth, and a quick wit. Run. Make art. Create. Swim in the ocean. Swim in the rain. Take chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Learn. Listen. Know your worth. Love fiercely. Forgive quickly. Let go of what doesn’t make you happy. Grow.
Really tired of the selfie lifestyle and attention that is given to those that always crave it on here, instead of growing in the real world. I’m trying not to be so present on social media, and more present with the individuals I am lucky enough to have around me.
I have had a public profile on this platform, and I must say, the attention craved was confirmed every, single second.... from complete and utter strangers. Not from anyone who truly loved and appreciated the true details.
I’m not signing off Facebook forever, but I am trying to be less introvertingly present (yes, I just made up that word/phrase), and more concerned about reforming, shaping and developing my person-to-person skills, that I believe will become more valuable than this not-so-reality social check-in online.
Someday, I hope you all do the same. Value the ones that want to look directly into your eyes, who are curious on how you are truly feeling, because they do care how you are doing, in this very rough world.
If you need me, you already have my #. If you text me, and I ask who you are, it’s only because I had a fear of placing your name into my contacts (that I have had since 14). #just #be #present #always #listen #learn #love #appreciate #motivate #love #fierce #sundayfunday #thoughts #feels #moment
