Nowadays, it is not always easy to completely disconnect from social media and simply focus on simple daily tasks.
For those who follow the blog (I have the guts to think that is a lot of people LOL), you must have realized that since I went to the exchange program, little or nothing I posted here on the blog and on my Youtube channel.
No, I did not abandon one of my coziest spot (besides my bed of course).
While I was doing the exchange program, I wanted to focus 100% on my purpose, without the pressure of having to post everything that I’ve been living, simply, because I´ve realized that I wanted to immerse in my mission, which was to connect with other people from various parts of Africa and a cultural exchange with the Americans, and not having the pressure of having to post every day or weeks.
This disconnection took a huge emotional weight, after all, we know that in this era of instagrams and facebooks, those who do not post are not noticed, and consequently, are forgotten (they said). With that, I came back to connect with my real essence when I created the blog, which was simply to create a sharing tool, so that I could show you some of what I like and be genuinely connected.
It is important to realize that sometimes it is necessary to disconnect some of the pressures that we put ourselves and to take advantage of small moments. That’s what I did.
I am in a stage of self-discipline, where I try every day not to let social networks command who I am, but rather the opposite. I tried to do small things I was not doing, such as reading a book, running or walking for a few minutes to enjoy nature, start a TV Show and finish it, be with friends and not worry about posting and just living. It’s amazing how it changes our state of mind in minutes and our mind opens to new things.
I came back, firmer and more connected than ever.
