I’ve been unplugging lately… spending time away from the computer, cell phone, social media and TV. I’ve needed a break from all the “noise” and chatter that fills our daily lives. Noise that in essence adds nothing to my life and my desire to live creatively. The noise that pulls me away from the peace inside and drains me of vital energy like disturbing news headlines and social media overload. I have started paying more attention to how I am spending my moments. The precious nuggets of time I have been granted. I really don’t know when they will run out so it’s time to start making the absolute most of my time and cut out the things that bring nothing enriching to my life. I’ve resolved to spend my time learning new things, going back to basics and in the process I’ve discovered some cool new hobbies. I’ve started making artisan bread from scratch and I’m so happy with how the loaves have been turning out. Added bonus: Our house has been smelling like a bakery for the last week or two with the comforting scent of freshly baked bread wafting through the air. I’m also pretty excited that I’ve discovered a way to make gluten-free bread that tastes even better than its gluten containing counterpart. Here is the recipe if you are interested! I have more on my list of new things I want to try, and I encourage you to start your own list. Is there something you’ve always wanted to learn or do… get off FB and get cracking! Let me know how it goes!
Oh, love this Vanessa! I totally feel everything you’ve said and have totally stepped back from FB and most social media. And I’m reading more books and loving the time, it’s been like a gift!
