The Peace And Quiet Of Broken Social Media

“Being connected to everything has disconnected us from ourselves and the preciousness of this present moment.” 
~ L.M. Browning

Hello, Lovelies!

I had a wonderful day yesterday, although apparently I should have been in melt-down. 😊 Facebook was down for most of the day for many business users, or at least most of the functionality was, and the same went for Instagram and WhatsApp.

I should have been stressed. My blog post didn’t cross-post to Facebook. My Instagram post didn’t load. My team and I couldn’t post or comment. Messenger went kind of crazy too.

Apparently this is a disaster!!!

Oh well.

Instead, I took myself for a walk through the laneways of Adelaide and stopped for good chai. I talked to people, read the paper, and made notes in my journal. Later a girlfriend came to pick me up for lunch and deliver me to my conference venue and we talked, shopped and hung out.

It was lovely.

I worked on a new deck of oracle cards and a book about card reading spreads that we are creating for you.

My phone wasn’t constantly pinging me with messages and updates. My crazy inboxes couldn’t load anything else into themselves. Instead I had static and quiet.

I’d forgotten how much I love that unplugged space.

It’s also made me more determined to create more of that in my life.

How about you? Do you get enough unplugged time?

There’s a whole world beyond our screens. And as much as I am grateful for having the world in my pocket and connectivity at my fingertips I find the here-and-now most satisfying too.

Biggest hugs to you, Nicole ❤ xx

  1. Well I didn’t notice it being down either ! However, I’ve never use it while I away from home, or busy. And Yay for prioritising more “you” time through your day. It is so worth it, as are you xx

  2. I’m not on FB but know how bereft I feel when I leave my mobile phone at home. And we are not the ones who grew up with this connectivity!
    Looks like being away from the farm is giving you a very busy week of different experiences and realisations.
    Please don’t wear yourself out, and eat up at any opportunity, Adelaide is rich with great food options. As you know! 😉

  3. Around oct 2018 I had a week of no internet because my charger for my tablet broke.. The first couple of days were really hard but after that I really enjoyed not being connected… I know that If I wasn’t part of YOM then I wouldn’t be on social media…
