You know what I hate? Looking back on a memory and thinking, I could have experienced more. Yes, I know regret is a bitch and I shouldn’t think about what if’s, and I try not to. Though I am only human (I know, hard to believe).
But this all dwindles down to the fact that I spent too much time on my phone during jaw-dropping, insanely fantastic, once-in-a-lifetime occurrences. I was so concerned with showing my followers what I was experiencing that I didn’t fully experience it myself.
If I could afford glasses that framed my face perfectly & recorded all my sacred thoughts and everything I saw, then I wouldn’t be in this debacle. But since I’m not Steve Jobs (RIP) & I don’t have the means to invent such a gift, I am stuck between two worlds. One where I show you everything I am experiencing & take you on this magical journey with me & two, where I turn off my phone & go off the grid. Where is the perfect line & how do I balance myself, my backpack & my iPhone on it?
After a two-month digital detox I am still a long way from figuring out this question, so bare with me as a get my bearings & try to find a healthy balance.
During my digital detox, I took a break from social media, my phone & my blog, but I didn’t take a break from writing. How could I? Writing is how I stay sane. Well, along with alcohol (just kidding, Dad).
I still wrote about every adventure I went on these past couple months, but this time I am going to focus on only sharing things that I am passionate & excited about. Not things that I think other’s will find interesting (no offense).
I will be updating my blog over the next week because I’M BACK.
