admit I am a mobile phone and social media addict.
admit that I am constantly looking at my phone or laptop for the
latest notification, message, emoji, ‘liked’ post, friend
acceptance, or email, when I am driving, working, eating,
exercising, hiking, talking with friends, sitting on the porcelain
throne, walking through an airport, and pretty much ALL THE TIME. I
am probably using my cell phone in my sleep!
admit that my ‘less than excellent’ belief in my gifts, talents, and
self have led to ridiculous amounts of time seeking validation through
technology instead of believing that God loves me for who I am.
admit that I can erroneously interpret the tone of someone’s written
words or their lack of response as them not liking me instead of
believing that I am perfect just the way I am.
am sorry for all the people who I have hurt through my technological
based communication, whether it was a misplaced emoji, a failure to
respond, an untimely response, a ‘like’ when I didn’t even really
look at the full post, a lousy video I created, a grainy image, or
just plain lack of constant activity on social media.
believe I have the power to resist my constant connection to my
phone and laptop.
know deep inside that my existence and goodness cannot be truly
measured or acknowledged by the number of messages, emails,
‘friends,’ or ‘likes’ that I receive on a daily basis.
believe that if I significantly reduce my reliance on and use of
technology, the true Spirit of, and desire for, my connection to
you, to our collective conscious, to our community, to our precious
earth, and to my higher self, will be more meaningful, stronger, and
I trust and believe that my beauty, love, goodness,
imperfections, purpose, and light will be shown by the Universe when
they are meant to known.
am ready to replace all the time I am using technology with writing,
meditation, real face-to-face
communication, being in nature, golfing, and exchanging lots of hugs
(and doing these activities without a phone or laptop nearby).
will continue to seek improvement in my conscious contact with God, the Universe, and people, by not using technology for more than 1 hour a day, which
means my writing will be done in free-hand, the old fashioned way.
am ready to let go and let be.
feels good already!
