nesslikestodress As I've stepped into classes for my major in Communication, I've realized how much as a society we have lost the ability to connect and really listen to others in midst of the irony of being connected in every social way ( i.e. Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, and the list goes on.) I definitely do not consider myself a social media addict, let alone concerned of how many followers and friends I have, but I wonder how much of a day I stare scrolling at screen and when I am in a class, at work, with a friend, even by myself walking into a store, how often am I truly seeking to connect with people? Do I look people in the eye, do I smile, do I enjoy the beauty of where I live? So I have decided for Lent, I am going to disconnect from social media to reconnect with myself, my surroundings, others, and Christ. Wherever I am, I want to be all there and not thinking of the mental escape of scrolling. I want to wake up to the Bible, not my Instagram feed. I want to sit at a coffee shop by myself and just be present and use my five senses.
I want to enjoy the beauty of the beach and not feel obligated to take a picture thinking that that will capture the memory better than simply sitting and taking in the moment. I want to be physically engaged when catching up with a friend over lunch. I want to be awake to what God is doing as it's written in Romans 13. My exception to this challenge is that I will only be posting on the Facebook/ Instagram for the youth group I work with, my personal social "medium" has now been defined to being intentional with others and myself.
I encourage you all to think about how you can reconnect as well, because I'm so excited to see what I learn and experience! ️ out friends & followers
