Hola! I know this probably seems insignificant, but today was day 1 of me-disconnecting from social media. Late last night I posted 3 posts on my Instagram account, since I knew I'd be taking a break. With that being said, today was a success. I was very productive. Deleting my social media apps on my phone was a good idea--though there were times today when I thought about checking just to see how many likes I received, but I didn't.
Instead of always reaching for my phone--today I reached for paintbrushes, oil pastels, watercolors, pencils and paper. I had been working on this for a while, but couldn't find the means to finish. This is the final product(picture above). I think I'll call it: Visioning Balance. If you can't tell, it's an eyeball with the yin yang symbol--and daytime/nighttime skies. Lately, I've been really looking for a sense of balance. Things won't always be balanced, but I must remember, one cannot have the light without the dark, the ups without the downs and so on. I'm learning to maintain balance and calmness in certain areas of my life. I don't know exactly where I'm headed in life at the moment, but I know that my patience will help me and guide me. I can only hope for the best, but I'm also prepared for the worst.
