What do I mean by short? Well, at least for the rest of 2023, and what happens after that I don’t know. Maybe I’ll like it so much that I will take the whole month of January off, or the whole winter.
Now, I might be tempted to post a picture or two, but no more videos. No more five-minute sermons, no more blogs or personal confessions. I want to discover what life is like without the pressure to produce, every single day.
Taking a break also means that I won’t comment on, or like your posts. Chances are that I won’t even see them.
Now, where does all of this come from?
I came to this conclusion this morning. I woke up early, and picked up my phone and started doomscrolling. This is what I noticed: there was so much noise and very little substance.
I saw people trying to be funny but no one was laughing. I saw people laughing about things that weren’t funny.
I saw scenes of humiliation, I went to war with soldiers, I witnessed politicians talking instead of listening, people saying religion is a hoax, the election was stolen, a story about the five richest women in the world, a homeless person receiving money, colleagues patting themselves on the back, lives of the royal families, animals doing weird things, and “You won’t believe what happens next” videos, and lots and lots of folks selling stuff nobody needs.
And I said to myself: Am I part of this silly circus?
It’s just so much noise, and for what? Really!
If I can’t even bring myself to watch all this nonsense, let alone reward it with a like or a comment, what am I doing here? Am I expecting to get something I’m not even prepared to give?
I don’t want to contribute to people’s noise. I want to send a clear signal, and to gain clarity I’m going to need some time to reevaluate where I’m going with this. And I can’t listen to myself when I’m talking to you.
Does all of this sound familiar? Does it resonate with you? Do you feel the fatigue and the need to recharge?
Then perhaps you’d like to join me. If all of us do this together, we won’t miss each other that much.
Let’s leave 2023 quietly. Let’s not slam the door. Let’s tiptoe out and see each other on the other side with fresh ideas, a clean slate, and an openness to increasingly becoming the person we are meant to be.
Let’s create a quiet space and fill it with kind and warm waves of wonderfulness…
