An Unplanned Social Media Cleanse

A week ago, I published a blog column addressing the simple fact that it's okay to be human. What I didn't know at the time was that I needed (and probably wanted) a break from anything that had to do with online stuff. That included a vacation from blogging.

So, here we are. I haven't published a blog column in a week. Just typing that gives me a prickly feeling up (or down) my spine.

In the 5 1/2 years since I started this blog, I don't think that's ever happened.


For the first time in 5 1/2 years, I took a break from writing and publishing a blog column. 


I didn't just take a break from this blog.

I also took a rather large break from social media in general.

I honestly posted the bare minimum.

And, I didn't scroll through my newsfeed or keep up on the latest news.


Let's face it, there is an abundance of negativity and arguing, and bullying.

I needed a break.

A vacation.

It felt good.

No, it felt amazing.

So amazing that I'm not going to wait 5 1/2 years to take another one.
