Would you like to own and take care of 6-8 houses? Or how about one house with 6 bathrooms?
Social Media is like owning a house with too many bathrooms and not having a cleaning lady.
Let's just think about the bathroom...
Time spent there can be relaxing, soothing and bubbly.
It can make you look at yourself.
You can leave your crap there.
You can hide the real you behind makeup.
You can leave there feeling good about yourself or not measuring up.
The bathroom (social media) can be about being real or covering up.
Face it. It can stink.
I guess my house has 6 bathrooms.
However, I keep the door closed on the Google+ and Pinterest bathrooms, making an occasional visit throughout the year. (I must visit my daughter-in-law's wish list when her birthday is near. And I have no idea what I should do with Google+ but add a link to my blog posts as I publish them.)
If I look closely at my FB bathroom I see 5 toilets there and several (unnecessary) urinals. So many groups I attempt to keep up with…. Yours my even have Twitter or Tumbler...
This just happens to be where I am right now.
Social media has been an escape for me. An escape from reality.
It's also where I've gone to refuel. Instead of to the One who created me.
I've allowed other people's opinions to fulfill me.
However, on the other hand... The beauty of the work of other artists soooo inspires me and shows me beauty through their eyes I would not see otherwise.
It's all about balance and knowing when to quit.
