Beware the bounce and happy
Beware sharing that aspect of personality as it arises
Only a few appreciate it
And it drains energy
Keep it inside
Bubble and break like a wave on the shore of a deserted beach
Yet the ocean continues
In all it’s glory
*I take many breaks from social media. I’ve learnt to. Social media (and I’m not talking about WordPress but rather Facebook, Instagram and those sorts of platforms) which are not designed for authentic sharing.
Or maybe humans are not designed for authentic sharing – who knows? Twenty years ago none of this existed and now we see mental health problems on a scale that has never before been witnessed.
Social media, its likes and follows and complex algorithms, it’s control and mechanisms are all designed for sales
And we are not merchandise
When I get happy and bouncy and excited about something I tend to bubble over and share it somewhere …
I’m so grateful to others that do this as I’ve picked up tips and inspiration and loads of information about all sorts of things from hiking to cooking to photography
However there is a caveat
These days I follow my feelings closely and if it feels good then I’m happy to share
When it stops feeling great and I need some head and heart space again I withdraw
And I take none of it seriously
A reminder to self and anyone else that needs to hear this – you are the ocean.
