This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 8/13/2016:
This is my social media strategy.
I had someone email me yesterday saying their biggest struggle in running their online business is staying on top of their social media presence on every platform, especially when the number of important platforms seems to be ever-expanding with updates (I’m looking at you, Instagram Stories.) And I get it. I feel the pressure too. Should I be doing more? Should I have captured that on camera? Could I be turning this [excursion, art project, business hack, thought I’m having] into a post?
The only way I’ve been able to stay sane with it all is two-fold:
1) Remembering that staying PRESENT in my life in a value I hold dear and
2) Making peace with the fact that if I’m being fully present, some moments may go UN-publicized and that’s okay.
My mantra to remind myself of this has become “living takes priority over posting.” For me that doesn’t necessarily mean that I won’t post something or won’t pause to share moments of my life (I honestly love that!) but the second I start to feel like I’m trying to bend my life around posting content, I gently nudge myself to return back to my priority: living.
This means avoiding things like: pulling myself out of my art flow just to document the process; dipping out of quality time with Jason to share what we’re doing; feeling guilty if I go dark for a few days. I think navigating the waters of social media is different for every person, but at least for me, less posting oftentimes means more living and more creating. 😃
