I did something extreme!
And it has nothing to do with these tiny little sketches......
I de-activated my Facebook account last night.
I know! Gasp!
You see I'd been noticing an addiction -
one of those addictions that's socially acceptable - no one really notices anything is wrong at all.
And as addictions do, it was encroaching on my "real life".
Subtly sucking time and energy away from what I really wanted.
Which is primarily spending more face to face time with my family and friends
(rather than messaging them online!)
AND more time painting, writing and generally being happier, more fulfilled.
That little internal voice kept tugging on my ear until I finally paid attention.....
"It's time to get outta social media. You'll be happier with less distractions - more action," it said.
And so, I did.
I'm currently going through "Facebook withdrawals".
Way stronger than the feelings I had when just on a short term "media fast".
It feels vaguely like I'm "missing out on something".
But I'm also feeling a growing glimmer of spaciousness.
(Insert oooh's and ah's.)
So never mind these somber-crooked-faced sketches -
Truth is I've been too lazy/distracted/busy to learn how to draw smiling faces!
But now, I just may find the time......
