I spend a lot of time scrolling. I scroll through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more. Sometimes I'm looking to see what my friends are doing, but a lot of time is spent just mindlessly scrolling. Working in social media, scrolling is a part of my daily life for each client. But personally? I need to stop scrolling and start doing. (Or at least reduce the scrolling.)
Don't get me wrong: many of my good friends I know through blogging or social media. It's an essential form of communication for us. And for me, I find a lot of inspiration from scrolling sometimes. But procrastinating life by endless scrolling is a waste. Also a waste? Comparing yourself to the random person from middle school that you're friends with on Facebook. That's some bullshit.
This past week I got to spend some time with friends in Pigeon Forge, TN. I spent a good amount of time there scrolling social media for work, but the amount of time I spent on mindless personal scrolling was greatly reduced for a few days. And it was lovely.
Typically not a nature fan, but it was gorgeous:
Yep, didn't re-apply sunscreen enough!
Walking up a hill at a 20 degree incline? Bun killer!
Are you a scroller?
