What happens when we’re drawn to the wrong light?
Chained to my phone…
Email! Slack! Social media!
Uncontrollably checking it
Responding to work inquiries minute by minute
Second by second
If it causes me anxiety and stress
Why do I continue to do it?
What am I distracting myself from?
I feel tight in my shoulders and my uterus
All the time
Holding on so tight
That takes me away from feeling empty
From being with myself
What happens if I let go?
Like REALLY let go
Does that mean something about my worth?
If I’m not available, am I forgotten?
If I’m not connected, will I be left out?
If I’m not adding value in every moment, do I have none?
What would happen if I placed more intention on my actions
Break free from this dependence on distraction
Be open to creativity
Fill myself with nourishment
Rather than intense micro-moments of “connection” through technology
When I’m always on my phone, I’m blocking out the present moment
Unaware of what’s happening around me
Buried in a deep distraction
Instead of looking for the real light
The true essence of life
Through connection to people and nature
Allowing it to wash over me
Fill me with love
Why am I drawn to a screen that lights up
Instead of using my own light to connect
