Singing is one of my greatest passions. I was inspired to post a personal mission statment on Instagram, the day of the great Aretha Franklin’s passing. May she rest in peace. This post required my practicing what I teach; leaning into my discomfort.
Learning how to use social media as a marketing tool for both my day and night job, has been an interesting journey. Research has shown us negative effects social media can on an individual’s well-being, if they are not mindful of their intentions and of their attachments. I have been aware since the beginning, which has created a tentativeness in sharing too much of myself. What is too much and how do we keep our ego in check when using social media to market ourselves? The ego is a complicated aspect of our personality and it requires on-going supervision so as not to become unruly and controlling. Therefore, I’ve relied on my value system to guide me in my journey of posting. My values are the path I walk upon and keep my aligned with my truth. They support me unfailingly, in fulfilling my purpose on this earth, which can only be accomplished when I am being true to myself, living with integrity from the inside out.
Below is the post I shared; my truth… May it inspire you to speak yours….
