Today is the 8th day of my social media fast. Thus far, I believe its has been a remarkable journey. I feel so detached and uncluttered mentality. I’ve had time to think about some of the things I want to accomplish, how I definitely want to make changes regarding my career. I’m at a plateau with my career, I see that as long as I’m working for someone else, they will not see my value and to me that’s not acceptable. I am overworked and underpaid and that’s not fair. Its time for me to stretch my wings and fly. I have an MBA, yet its not being used. I can do so much more than what I’m doing. I’m hindering myself by being there. I haven’t grown and I’m sitting on my gifts. I’m thankful that my bills are being paid and that’s good and all, but I want more. Its time for me to make my exit soon.
Also, I have learned that some of the friends I have been associating with are really not my friends. I am realizing everyone cannot run the race with you, when its time to go on the 5th mile, some people cannot proceed ahead. Although, I have been friends with these people for years, I have grown and I have changed for the better. This journey called life teaches you lessons and once you’ve learned from that experience, its okay to move on to the next phase.
I hope to continue to learn and grow during this fast.
