Somehow with all the apps that are designed for convenience, for example a parking app to find an available street parking spot in the surrounding 6 blocks, life seems to be more complicated now than ever before. If we continually tell us this then it actually becomes true. One of those temporary truths – but at least true for us in the moment. Yes we have social media always tugging at your sleeve. And there is also your phone constantly nudging you to steal your energy. There is always something popping up. If we are to get stuff done and learn or grow or wonder we need to resist the phone/internet/social media tentacles. Resistance is not futile- Resistance is CRUCIAL! Resist the fleeting to accept and digest you in the moment.
We resist anything by making something more important. So take the time to have a short mental list at the ready for you to use as resistance. A list of things that are more important than checking your Facebook again. Important things have more energetic leverage.
So make important things important!!
Things like your love of self whatever in the world that means – but give it some time. If you repeat it without being interrupted by your phone then you receive some ideas. You have to build resistance – so you have to repeat yourself – your petition for self love.
Things like your love of nature.
Things like your growing belief in your life passion(purpose …?).
