That wonder that is technology these days is ensuring that we are in touch with everyone, no matter where we are or they may be. Apart from being with the people present in our lives physically, all our waking hours are spent with people virtually. Little do we realize that the ‘being in touch’ is more of an illusion as in doing so we are slowly losing touch with people, and most of of ourselves.
Our family, real life friends and life are often neglected while we are connected to people virtually. The barrage of information that comes to us from the internet is snowing us down and amount of things the media is subconsciously arm twisting us towards doing is nudging us towards following a herd mentality. The moment we think of doing otherwise the fear of being left out takes over.
When was the last time you paused to think what is it that YOU want? That you really, truly want? Are YOU making the choices you follow? Are YOU happy with the outcome of the choices?
Pause, step back and take a hold of yourself. Ask yourself what is it that you truly need, not what you want. Realize what are your strengths and what holds you back. Make a checklist of what makes you happy. Pen down what makes you feel alive.
In other words, get in touch with yourself. As only you know what you need and what you don’t. What are the things that make your spirit blossom and what does not allow it to grow. Knowing yourself is truly the beginning of all wisdom.
You can only fly higher when there is no weight of expectations holding you down. Shrug of what is not needed and soar.
Get back in touch with YOU and let YOU be your guide once again.
