I wonder what I missed…

I tried to write this post six days ago and found that I really had no motivation.  I have had a couple people in my life bring it up over the last week so I thought maybe now is the time.

My social media vacation is over, and like any vacation, I don’t really want it to end.  What is so great about this vacation is that it doesn’t have to end; I can just keep on doing everything I am doing and not telling the whole internet about it. Mmmmmm.  Bliss. Continue reading

Time to Turn It Off

I read a post on The Art of Simple a few days back about a book that is about to come out called “Finding Spiritual Whitespace,” and it got me to thinking… I could use some more whitespace in my life.  I have so much that clamors for my attention all the time and it leaves me feeling sapped of mental and physical energy.  I read a lot of different things about having and doing less in order to live more, and I really love the idea of that.  However, sometimes it seems like there just really isn’t much more I can excise from my life.

Then it hit me: SOCIAL MEDIA.  Continue reading

Today is the last day of the 30 Days of Thanks.  I’ve never participated in this and I don’t know anything about its origin, but my experience of it was to post something I was thankful for every day in November.  I got involved because I just happened to see a post by a friend on November 1st and I thought that it sounded like a fun challenge.  I had no idea what a journey it would be.

“Like” Me on Facebook

Borrowed from depositphotos.com

So I realized today, by way of How To Ruin A Toddler’s Day, that if I am to garner any followers on Facebook, I need to tell people about it!  Here it is: find me on Facebook and give me a “like” at www.facebook.com/MathairFiona or you can click “like” in the box on the right-hand side of your screen.  You can also feel free to follow me on Twitter: @MeghanDF.  You’ll get more updates there, so it’s really up to you how involved in my life you want to be.  Hahaha.

If you do choose to “like” me on Facebook, make sure to share my page with your friends!

Recovering Shut-Down Addict

I consider myself to be an activist.  Not really in the true sense of the word.  The root is clearly “active” and I am not the chain-myself-to-a-tree type.  I am much more of a passive activist (passactivist?).  I like to have conversations with people about their beliefs and lead by example.  Some would argue that if I’m going to make any real change in the world that I need to be out holding the picket sign and gathering signatures on a petition.  Sure, those people are necessary, but that’s not how I work to change the world.  The other side may call me lazy, but I believe that my approach may be less abrasive and more likely to garner sympathy from my “opponents”.
