52promisestome #4 OFFLINE
it is actually kinda absurd how much we (i :) are online. check email. check business email. check webshop mail. check Etsy messages. go to facebook. instagram.youtube. twitter. pinterest. news sites. and back to instagram it is. watching a few stories and before you know it, 1 or maybe 2 hours have passed by. the book you wanted to read still lies untouched. 4 Flow Magazines, on a pile, not read. "had no time yet" is what i tell myself.
or that crochet project i started months ago and wanted to finish it months ago too. and it's just such a shame. you are not getting anywhere by keep going online. sure, sometimes it's nice to see what your friends are up to, what fellow-entrepeneurs (hello :) are doing. but more times than most i feel empty and feel so much better when i put down my phone. go artjournal, read, crochet, draw. play games. build a barbie dollhouse with Sanne. thinking up plans and ideas together how we can make it beautiful. so this is such a nice promise to myself: BE AND DO MORE OFFLINE. put that thing down, pancake! be conscious of what you are doing. don't pick up my smartphone without thinking. put a timer on. FREE MYSELF.
and are you ready to join in? here's the list for January, this week i'll show you the words for February too! it's easy, just follow me on Instagram, and let me know that you are joining. use the hashtags #52promisestome and i'll watch your every move. that sounded more creepy than i meant. haha.
