Chasing Social Media Happiness

There was a time that I felt anxious about my social media presence. Moments I’ve found myself in a state of anguish, depression and feeling like I’m not worthy enough. After spending some time talking with my close family and friends (even making trips to see the doctor), I realize that part of the problem was taking a lot of things I’ve seen on social media to heart.

So I decided to go on a social media break to help reconnect with myself. It was a rough journey in getting back to the state of things. When I’ve reentered back in the social media scene, I was able to look at the platforms with a clearer picture and mindset. I no longer feel tied to comparing myself with larger followings or going after verified check makes for the sake of making myself look good.

Social media can be a good place to connect and share your thoughts, if done correctly.

I want you to know that it’s okay to take social media breaks. If you need to focus on your health, please do so. That’s more important than getting likes and comments. You can’t take social currency to the grave.

How do you cope with seeing negative reactions on social media? Would love to hear your thoughts.

Namaste,

Soup of the Day

I know it’s cheesy, but I couldn’t help making this comic 😆 you can tell that I’m not a huge fan of Mondays.

I try my best to breathe and make a list on what needs to be taken care of. I find that having something in order makes me feel like I have my crap together.

How do you stay sane on Mondays? Would love to hear your thoughts 💭

Namaste,

Happy December

Happy December, fam. We are at the last month of the year. Can’t believe that 2018 has been filled with exciting and life changing moments for me.

Speaking of exciting – I found my stash of Prismacolor Markers while cleaning my office. I’ve bought them about two – three years ago and quite surprised that it hasn’t dried out! I felt pretty giddy and decided to find my stationary heavy stock paper and did a quick sketch of my chubby cow standing next to a holly plant.

These were the markers I’ve used to create my little artwork. I’m hoping to incorporate some more traditional art on my page. I had to keep reminding myself that there’s no copy and paste function when making the circles round 😅 oh, how far we’ve come with technology these days…

What are your plans to make December memorable? Would love to hear your thoughts 💭

Namaste,

-D.
