Good morning friends, I have a confession to make. Just like you I’m always a work in progress. But, there are times when I have to relearn my own lessons that I teach everyday.
This week I’ve been doing lots of self reflection and I’ve decided that it was necessary to make some changes to my social media.
I want to feel good when I get online, not drained and annoyed by my feed and the people in it.
You see, when I started my online business and my blog, my goal was to create a lot of followers in order to pre sell my book and to sell the shit out my anti aging products.
But now almost 5 years later it’s time to start over again. I found that my Facebook was full of people that I never talk to and that bring absolutely no joy to my life. It felt like high school all over again and I didn’t like school the first time I went.
I forgot what it felt like to enjoy my feed because I got caught up in a popularity contest of followers. In the beginning I hired an online social media coach to grow. And I’ll never forget what he said to me. He said “Tavia, you know what your good at, your really good at being yourself, but this is the internet and you have to do things differently!”
Even though I hated what he was saying, I thought that maybe he was right so I listened for a while.
But as it turns out, by doing things his way I ended up with a lot of nonsense that wasn’t for me. Recently I decided it was time to take my life and my social media back.
I deleted a good 500 people yesterday that I never talk to and it felt good to reclaim my space for new energy.
Even though I’m the teacher, I’m also always the student. My gift is being able to be myself in a world that wants you to fit in and conform.
And even I need to learn to get past my own BS someday.
