Life Is Beautiful

Anti-Social Media Challenge

"Life Outside Internet Is Equally Amazing", Rohit Sood.

No matter how old we get, we always try to sleep once again as we wake up. Similarly, I did the same thrice today morning until I called my friend to wish her good morning. To my surprise, she was also struggling to wake up from bed and therefore, was in a similar situation as I was. We both encouraged each other to get off from bed and prepare ourselves to have breakfast.

In addition, I have an habit to check all my social media notifications as I wake up in the morning. However, considering the fact that I removed all such Applications from my mobile on September 30, 2017, it was quite challenging for me to resist myself from checking the notifications or messages if any. Surprisingly, I was able to control my urge to check the social media networking sites, rather opened the "Flipboard" to read some articles of my interests. While flipping through various stories, I came across an article which discussed the Writer's Block in detail and how to avoid it. It focused on '45 Ideas given by 45 Bloggers on how to keep ideas flowing in our mind for new blog posts'
In summary, most of them suggested to use Quora, Notepad, Reading, Writing, Schedule Posts, etc. It was quite useful article and much better than the notifications I might have checked on Social Media.

One of the hilarious situations was when I was having my mother's mobile in my hand and I saw Instagram Icon in it and for a moment, I decided to open her Instagram and search for my name to check how many followers I got. Within a span of second, I put that thought away stating to my mind, "What's the use of going away from social media if you are still concerned about it?"

Things I Learned Today:
  1. Before you make any prejudgment about someone, just tell them how you feel. You will be surprised to realize how wrong you might have been.
  2. It's not how much you get in return but how much you give, makes the whole difference.
  3. It feels amazing when you finish the task assigned to you.
  4. I don't know whether being too much expressive is good or bad but as long as you are expressing in front of the right person, it does not matter at all.

To put it in a nutshell, I was able to spend another day without social media and I still don't have any regrets because I am getting connected to people who matter to me.
