My Facebook Friends will definitely testify how active I am in Facebook, how many times I post photos of myself, what I am into, my activities and my circle of people hanging out with. My Instagram Friends will prove how crazy I am posting Instagram stories about everything I am doing in a daily basis and how conscious I am on how my Instagram Feed looks like. I am that kind of person, I don’t know how they call it but I live my life with people’s approval; likes, comments and reactions in social media.
Recently, I made a huge decision in my life. A decision to change. And a decision to TRULY LIVE. I deactivated my Facebook account and Instagram account, leaving only my Messenger Account for communication purposes with my close family but also minimize chatting with people that starts talking unnecessary topics, those up to no good.
It was so far the best decision I have done this year. A decision that REALLY and TRULY change my life’s views and ways. It gives me an outstanding feeling of peace and fulfillment. I am feeling that I am truly living now as a human being and not just a person who rely and depend her life from other’s opinion and point of you. This is it! This is life!
While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:
I wake up in the morning and start my day with a prayer, prepare myself to work, travel, and check only my phone whenever I reach the office. I became a different person, a person who look forward what can happen in her day and not on how people react on her posts. It is a relief! A different feeling of happiness.
Do I miss using those social media accounts? Do I miss the feeling of affirmation from other people? Do I miss the way I live my life before? The answer is a BIG NO! I even forget about it and I am not worrying or trying to get back. For now, I am satisfied on how I choose to live my life.
Lying in my bed in the evening, I see myself smiling, I am just starting, starting to live the life I deserve. A life surrounded with the right people, right decisions and rights choices. There is no definite word to define what I feel right now but one thing I am certain, this is how God wants me to grow as a person, a simpler life yet more productive and meaningful.
I have said a lot and this has been so lengthy now. I had drove in a rocky and tough road but it wasn’t too late, I had to make a U-turn to achieve the life God has planned for me. Still in journey of progressing to a better version of me. and I am excited what lies ahead. 😊
It had been so Peaceful, a different and indescribable kind of Peace.
