Notice

I have a number of friends that have decided to abstain from social media for Lent.

There are varying degrees of sacrifice with this Lenten promise. Each individual involved in this fast will have some events becoming more difficult to NOTICE. The biggest sacrifice for many is changing a habit that may perceive keeps them connected to others.

The key component on fasting from social media is what are we not getting to NOTICE. Is everything on social media worth NOTICING?

I realize in today’s society that getting NOTICED can become a dominant theme. Google “How to get NOTICED on Social Media” and the results are staggering. Everybody has an explanation on how to appear to be interesting.

I am convinced that my friends that are doing a fast from Social Media are going to experience or NOTICE some great things in their lives. They are going to stop being consumed by trying to be interesting and start being interested in other priorities.

I suspect they are going to NOTICE the following

* They are going to NOTICE or listen to their authentic inner voice not the noise of social media. Social Media’s danger is comparing our self to others for self-worth.

*They are going to NOTICE habits they had with Social Media that upon reflection may not be habits they want.

*I suspect they are going to NOTICE they sleep better at night.

*Since they are not NOTICING others they may eliminate a comparison mindset which when removed leads us to a path to becoming authentic.

Each of my friends that is fasting from social media is impacting me. My challenge is I want them to NOTICE me bragging on them for their choice. I will tell them when I see them face to face.

I love the indirect connection that Lenten fasting made by friends has on me. Their choice has made me realize that I need to utilize a more personal communication strategy with friends.
