This world is really confusing. In this world, it seems the
only special moments are the social media worthy ones. They
are moments when you know people will be like 'wow' after
they see your photos during their routinely scroll. Maybe its
appears a lie to me because I've never really shared
something on social media that bought me 'wow's. Yes, moments
like that are a lie. Two things make them a lie:
- can't you live completely in that moment, getting all the
grace, love and joy it brings, than trying to use it as tool
to appear better and awesome?
- And FYI, the special moments aren't the social media worthy
ones. They are moments when passion marries love and they
produce blissful babies; that is, every moment is special if
lived mindfully with the whole heart poured into it.
Okay, fine. I'm kind of introverted so it affects my interest
in social media a bit. But the main reason I shrinked away
from social media? Jealousy. And there's no way you'll walk
up to me, convince me that you've never felt a twinge of
jealousy towards anyone after more than a year of seriously
exploring the hills and valleys of FB. I simply won't believe
you, bae. It just won't happen.
* I have the right to be happy. * Remember the phrase from
part1 ? There will be times when social media will do that to
you- it will rock you, letting the wind blow your cradle and
you'll end up falling hard.
In this journey, let's try not to rip away the things that
bring us happiness. Social media- I can't explain it. But I
know its disadvantage. It rips my happiness from my hands. I
don't want to let it go. Just want learn how to 'be', to
learn how to live mindfully in each moment, getting the
happiness its results bring. That's what I want to do. Each
and every moment; I want it to be special. I'll find bliss
when I use passion to teach love a few tricks of action. It
will be wonderful on its own, not for the likes on facebook,
or the followers on instagram(wait o, do I even have
instagram account? Shey, this is serious. Anyways). Wonderful
on its own...

Lovely Bae, its our journey_together_happiness part2 (on social media and moments)
#reviews We all think of, wish for yesterday, all the good times we had. Maybe yesterday isn't what we need. This book has taught me so...
Dear You, Sitting there in front of the secretary getting inquiries about the institution, I knew I could tell her my heart- my dream's...
I have sat here for days, right on this white chair, my elbow leaning on this white table, fingers tingling, willing myself to write to you...
Lovely Bae, This world is really confusing. In this world, it seems the only special moments are the social media worthy ...
