On January 3rd I made a bargain with the Divine and so ended my social media addiction to posting and sharing my artwork and life (except on my BLOG!)
I found myself way to caught up in getting "likes", attention and comments on what I shared; mostly my art. I don't want my work to be influenced by "likes". It takes me out of myself and into caring waaay too much about what others think of me and my work. This is dangerous territory. One can lose oneself too easily by going down this rabbit hole. And I wanted myself back; my quiet spaces, my fumbling artistic explorations, my intuition, my spirit, my self.
Since quitting social media posting, time has expanded and the pressure has lifted. I still paint at least one painting-a-day but no longer share it every day. I thought I'd lose my commitment because I was no longer being accountable to "My PUBLIC". HA! I'm still accountable to ME. And my public can wait until I'm ready to share.
So thank you DIVINE for forcing my hand and coming through for me once again when I needed you.
Want to try this yourself? Simply ask the Divine, your HIgher Power, your higher self, or whatever, for help and then JUST...STOP...POSTING. Could be for a day, a week, a month, and see how it feels. Journal about it. Be with YOU for a change, it's lovely here.
