Reunite with Facebook?

Orlando Motivational Speaker
Learning how to surrender is key to a joyful life. i’ve surrendered to the FOMO (fear of missing out) and haven’t kept up on Facebook.

Reunite with Facebook?

A year ago i stopped posting to my personal Facebook.

Why?

Too much that doesn’t feel right about it.

So will i reunite with personal Facebook after a year’s absence?

Not sure.

One side says, steer clear of the emotional distractions.

The other side says go back to being “social”.

What if i could be social, but on personal terms with individuals using texts and calls?

What if a few text groups were created?

To my eyes, i see too much immaturity, competition, anger, distraction, and score keeping.

Would you use Facebook if the like button was removed and comments were disabled?

If there were no “affirmations” to compare yourself to, would you use Facebook?

Do you find yourself wishing your life could be as exciting or vibrant as some of your friends?

Do you wish some of your other friends would stop whining and complaining?

Do your friends posts lift you up and help propel you to your dreams?

Do you really want everyone in your friend group to know all the things you post?

How many times a day do you look at Facebook?

Some days it doesn’t happen in the morning

10 grade XC runner
Three days ago he had multiple reasons to quit, but he finished anyway.

 

Some days it doesn’t happen in the morning; writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts every day.

Everyday for 7.3 years.

Normally, all five are written before sunrise.

On those days when the pressure of a busy schedule is higher and the duration is long, i’m tempted to finally make an exception to the not missing a single day part.

But i don’t succumb.

Ever.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Please don't tell me

When to accept defeat and when to dig in?

Their devotion is remarkable.

 

When to accept defeat and when to dig in?

Surrender is fundamental to spirituality.

Surrender is also intense and difficult.

i remember surrendering to God’s will. If He didn’t want me to become a dad (the thing i came to realize i wanted more than anything in the whole world) than i would move forward without the dream of being a dad.

Is giving up the same as surrender? Or are they the same things, just different looking?

If we lose our ability to walk, and require 24/7 nursing care, and we’ve been blessed with nine decades of life, would it be easy to abandon hope and faith?

Prayers Please

Praying is a lonely activity

Pray anywhere, anytime. Pray everywhere, all the time.

 

Praying is a lonely activity.

But only if we expect or hope for recognition.

At what level of being overwhelmed can we walk away?

Disney Leadership Speakers

 

(photo: We could walk, or take the Monorail? Or maybe a bus?)

At what level of being overwhelmed can we walk away?

Be careful. Tomorrow will come, and we will be faced with responsibility for our actions.

There is something about preparing early every morning for the day – which in theory could be our last – and watching the darkness change to light.

Could this daily routine be similar to the same excitement as going to Disney World?

Only one person in charge of this.
