Do you feel empowered after you scroll the interwebs? Or, do you feel overwhelmed, a bit bummed, or maybe even “behind?”
When we scroll through Instagram, Fb etc it is easy to compare our “work in progress” with someone else’s filtered and curated end product. I am not saying that what they post isn’t authentic or worthy. I too love a good filter and don’t post when my website crashes or when I totally miss a deadline. But, that’s actually my point. We all tend to post the best version of whatever is happening. But, it’s easy to forget that those pics and posts are the best versions of that person’s day, it may or may not be reality and it causes us to feel like we are behind in the race. That we aren’t “doing it.”
I try to create more than I consume. Not because I want to bombard people with beautiful pictures. That’s not it at all! But, what I mean is, that I try not to consume more of others ‘stuff’ than I can create of my own.
And, by creating I don’t mean post more on social!
I create blogs to help others, I create webinars, I journal, workout or film videos to help others. The more I create to help others with their questions or needs the better I feel. I don’t want you to create for the sake of being busy. I hope you can find ways to create that shares your gifts and helps others.
How do you feel after you scrolled through IG for 30 min? Do you feel like you can take on the world? If you do that’s awesome. But, if you feel whelmed or worse then make a deal with yourself this week to create more than you consume!
I can’t wait to see what you create this week.
