Pleasant Walks, Social Detox

Social Media Detox: Day 3

Going on a walk without my smart phone was interesting. I found myself having little worries, like wondering if my daughter’s mother was going to drop her off at my place while I was away, and I wouldn’t be there, and she’d have no way to contact me.

It was all okay, though. The weather was pleasant and I got a little bit of gentle exercise in.

I had the day off, and it was nice to get everything done on my to-do list.

What I did today

  • Write novel 90 mins
  • Music/Songwriting
  • Went on a walk without my phone
  • Worked on pitches for my freelance writing gig
  • Spent time with my daughter

Something interesting I read today

“It was my fear of failure that first kept me from attempting the Master Work. Now, I’m beginning what I could have started ten years ago. But I’m happy at least that I didn’t wait twenty years.” -The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

Something interesting I learned today

There is a movement toward creating happiness. We create more happiness in the world by first knowing who we are, what we want, and then taking active steps toward achieving a life with meaning; we then share our own happiness with others.
