“I withdraw from people and places from time to time, I need space from a world that is filled with millions of mouths that talk too much but never have anything to say.” ~Kaitlin Foster

DucksI never used to like being alone. Before I started loving myself, I filled my time with social media, movies, TV, the radio…anything to get away from who I truly was. What I didn’t know was that I was really hiding from finding my true self because I was afraid of what I would find. You can’t figure out who you are and what you want in your life if you don’t take time for solitude. You can never grow or learn if you don’t face your demons. If you let everyone dictate your life, then you will constantly be searching for meaning to your existence.

whisperThe more technology the world invents, the worse it gets. No wonder we all feel so drained at the end of the day. There’s no question to me anymore why we are all so easily influenced. It takes one ad to tell a child this is how they should think or be. Taking time out to just “be” is the best gift you can give yourself. Don’t get me wrong, I would be lost without technology just like everyone else, but I try to use it help instead of hinder myself. Invest in yourself, spend time alone, figure out what you want. This world needs true leaders, not just people who think they know everything because they follow the majority.
