They say all good things come to an end. I believe those good things use the pause button effectively. Meaning they take breaks and understand the reasons why those breaks are needed.
I say all that to say this. I’m taking a social media and marijuana cleanse. In other words I’m saying ‘fuck that shit for a little while, let me get back in focus.‘ I can’t remember the last time I’ve taken a break from either, but sometimes you have to notice what’s holding you back and just get rid of it before it’s too late.
I’ve been on social media since Friendster, a lot of y’all are looking confused, and I’ve made it to where we are today with Twitter and Snapchat and Facebook and *throws the rest of the list in rice.*
It’s been a journey to say the least. I’ve met some amazing people and I’ve also met some toxic people. I’ve met some people I still speak to today after 10-15 years and some people that will never see an emoji from me again. Life sucks. Cold world. Bundle up. But I will never regret the hours I spent talking to strangers and catfish from across the nation and beyond it’s borders. But I can say that time wasn’t used productively.
I’ve come to realize the relationships I’ve built benefited others more than it benefited me. As I said, I don’t regret it, but I don’t think I can continue down the same road. It’s not good for my personal growth or personal health. With that I’m not afraid to let it go and detach from it until it becomes a useful tool again. The new me understands it’s necessary so I’ll just write my thoughts here on this.
As far as the marijuana goes, it’s just something I knew for awhile I had to do. I enjoy smoking and yeah, fuck it I just may be ‘addicted.’ But truthfully it’s a financial thing more than a not taking care of shit I’m supposed to.
I remember growing up they said marijuana was a gateway drug and I’m happy to laugh in those stupid people’s faces. But it’s definitely not good for someone who is a habitual procrastinator. I tend to get lazy when I smoke and it’s never good for someone of the independent circuit. Plus, any hustler that’s really trying to make money knows you can’t have habits or you’ll forever be broke.
So today begins the preparation and tomorrow who knows. But those that follow my page will enjoy my 30 day journey with me. I’m not sure where it takes me. I’m not sure what’s at the end of all this. I’m not sure if the next 30 days will be hard or soft. But I’m following my intuition on this one. And I’m thankful y’all are along for the journey.
Until next time. ✌🏾 & ❤️.
