Sometimes we forget how much work goes into those all those carefully stage managed facebook posts, instagrams, and twitter updates. Your friend’s life looks fabulous because he spends a lot of time cultivating that impression. Few people post the negative things that are happening. And no one likes to brag about how boring and blase their life is.
This weekend I am unplugging and stepping away from all that. Instead of working too many hours, stressing over life, and tsking myself for all the things I am not doing, I will be swimming, reading books, hanging out with family, and cleaning my house to get my life back in order. Ok, that last one may be a lie. But what I am not going to be doing is obsessively sitting on my phone, checking email, and obsessing over the internet. Which is good since I will be at a house without internet reception! Happy 4th of July!
I’m grateful for some time off!
