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
- 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.
