Discomfort

Day 62 of walking

I wrote a long post about social media and why I removed myself from the fray, but I deleted it before hitting publish. I decided John F. Kennedy explained it better when he said that “[t]oo often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”

Never did I imagine missing the days of cloud pictures and latte art, but I here I sit, longing for a heavily filtered cumulus. The world needs foamy leaves, decaf, stat. (And critical thinking skills.)

Last week, after scrolling past my 341st #shepersisted tattoo, I wished out loud for a way to share my walk pictures without having to deal with Instagram. “If only there was a way for me to write without the hassle of social media,” I lamented.

It took me a few minutes to remember blogging existed. So much for my critique of everyone else’s critical thinking skills.

I’m back to blogging regularly, which I’m so happy about. I’ll be posting my walk pictures Monday through Friday. My hope is that once I get back into the routine of writing again, I’ll do more of that, too. I’m rusty!

  1. Glad to have you back. I prefer blogs (call me old fashioned) as they are longer and more thought out. You can be intentional about reading them as well…they hit your inbox and you can enjoy them. I know it’s still social media, but it seems slower. 🙂

    Plus I enjoy your writing. 🙂

  2. Yippee! You’re back!! It has taken me far too long to realise, but my afternoon is now going to be 100 times more enjoyable as I catch up on what I have missed from you 🙂
