Unplug.

Every now and then, one must disengage from social media. Unplug from television, Facebook, words with friends, Twitter and any other form of media that seems to momentarily take over our lives. Let Facebook tell it and everyone’s life is perfect. Everyone has the best family, the best job, the best social life. Well I am sorry. My life is imperfect and I have problems that I am not willing to share on my status or tweet to 2153 “friends”. Unplugging has done me well though. I am no longer consumed in checking my “status” and focused more on my physical activity and my literary musings. At a certain point, it can all become too much — causing overload and exhaustion. Unplug for a little while…it feels really good.
