Dreaming of Adventure

Wow, I have really been sucking at NOURISH + RECEIVE.

I guess it’s the positive and happy lessons that are the hardest to learn.

After months of ever-increasing gross income, I have totally psyched myself out. My gross income is not doing so hot.

And self-care, pff, I have been doing so poorly.

But yesterday, Sunday, March 12, I had an idea that hit me hard, but I knew it was the right thing.

I have to decrease my social media usage.

This is hard for me, basically because there is so much that my hubs and I cannot do. Often times, we just veg in front of our laptops all day. Super not good and so not nourishing.

So I decided to do a Sunday Social Media Fast. I did have to go on Facebook for a little bit, but I really made a conscious effort to stay off.

And it was incredible.

I didn’t stay off of my computer, because let’s be real, BABY STEPS.

But at least I didn’t binge on Facebook or Instagram all day.

What I did do was EXPLORE.

When I look back at all of my happiest moments in life, it was when I was travelling. Going on an airplane for the first time at 14. Seeing Times Square all lit up. Seeing the ocean for the first time at the age 19. Going to England. Eating at a mountain top restaurant in Athens, Greece, watching the lights sparkling in the night as my fellow pilgrims drank champagne and laughed as the night breeze flowed around us. Road-tripping with my husband.

Travel is my bliss.

Glastonbury Tor in Glastonbury, England, first trip outside of the US.

Seeing the ocean for the first time in Panama City Beach, FL.

My happiest times have been when I’m traveling, exploring, expanding my mind and experiences.

So yesterday, when I stayed off of social media for most of the day, we dreamed about where our next adventure would take us.

Some of Randall’s injuries are slowly getting better, but still, we have no ETA of when he will be better. BUT the hope that the world is big and wide and full of things to explore fills our hearts with so much joy.

So I guess the point of this post is just to say, never stop dreaming, never stop exploring, never lose your sense of wonder, follow your bliss.

And sometimes, you just need to stay the F off of Facebook.
