Digital Detox // 5 Things I Learned from Stepping away from Social Media for a Week

August 28, 2018

I am so excited to be partnering on this sponsored post with Workman Publishing on another special release by Flow Magazine. Flow is a magazine that takes its time, celebrating creativity, imperfection, and life’s little pleasures.  In a time when other print media is focusing their energies on their digital properties, Flow Magazine is finding success by fully embracing the physical qualities of paper.

Creativity Takes Courage is the newest book released by the co-founders and creative directors of Flow Magazine, Irene Smit and Astrid Van der Hults.  It is available now, and only $21.95!

It is a practical and hands-on guide to stretch your creative muscles and dare to focus on the pleasure of the process!  The book is organized around a series of twelve “dares” that are intended to break you out of your usual habits and approach to creating by giving you a fresh perspective and leave your comfort zone.  A few of the “dares” in the book are: dare to be quiet, dare to be mindful, dare to try something new, dare to be alone, and one that particularly stood out to me was number 9, dare to go offline.

Inspirational Book with Quotes

Now who doesn’t love to celebrate love of all kinds!  I once read that love is making space in your life for someone else.  As I have gotten older, I have found that the definition of love has changed for me a lot over the years as I have continued on my journey.  Love for me as a mother, and wife and women in my community with friendships is much different than what I used to see it as in the past.  A huge part of love and a great way to show love is to offer service.  For me this is one of the truest forms of love, and something that I have been making a conscience effort to make a priority in my life.  I wanted to share a few ideas and ways to serve and show love that I have enjoyed doing over the years.
