As most of you know, I've mentioned my media detox several times in the past few weeks and during those weeks I've been slowly weaning myself off of t.v., in fact, I weaned myself all the way down to only the shows that I had dvr'd which is huge for me because I am a total news whore and I feel, or felt, I must know what's going on in this crazy world at all times. I just like to be informed! And I admit there were some slight
CONFESSION: I will be purchasing ALL seasons of "Castle" available for later viewing. - What can I say? He's hot.
In the meantime. I do have one media detox complete with the termination of my personal Facebook page. However, I am keeping my 'Magical Mystical MiMi' Facebook Fan Page up and running so everyone is welcome to visit me there or here! I would love that! And if you my beloved bloggee pals have not gone to my Facebook Fan Page and hit the "like" button please feel free to do so now. Go ahead, I'll wait.
Bottom line is, I know my blog and my Facebook Fan Page aren't the instant gratification like on a personal Facebook page but it's most definitely more in sync with the changes I am making in my own, real personal life which is anything but instant gratification. For me, now is a time to stop and smell the proverbial roses. A time for strolling, not running. For writing, creating, enjoying and loving life. Self discovery and being true to me.
I have set some inspiring, creative and amazing goals for myself and I knew I wasn't going to be able to reach them with the static of all things media going on in the background. News 24/7, most of it just sad. Non sensical drama, time wasting on games til the wee hours of the morn, or worse, tending to the illusions of plants/crops, baking gardens and shops. No. It had to end.
I have exchanged the illusions for the real and tangible. The time wasting for counting every moment and making every moment count.
I love all of my Facebook friends dearly and I hope that they will stay in touch visiting my Facebook page and blog often, as I will be visiting with them.
So... HUGE detox success and honestly, I am feeling no withdrawals this time and that simply tells me that this time, is the right time.
