Don’t Quit Social Media

2017-01-17-1484680456-6848554-yxvkh7n8asojacobwalti.jpg

I’m back!

I spent nearly half a year without Facebook (had access to Facebook Messenger), Linkedin, Twitter and other social networks. No media as well, except financial outlets for work reasons. In other words, all this time I lived in digital abstinence and isolation.

The result? You tell me. I didn’t experience a bliss or found a deeper meaning of life. My happiness dropped, productivity stayed flat at best. I lost touch with reality and couldn’t separate my work from my personal life. I lost connection with my friends, motivation, and aspirations.

We all know it, but this experience drilled it into me once and for all: Humans are just wired to connect. Yet, in this technology-driven, globalized word, we interact in person less.

Social media and messaging apps won’t replace face-to-face interaction, but you want it or not, now that’s the way it is. It’s the new means of communication that will only take a bigger part of our lives as we move forward in this age. You have to embrace it.

The problem is not the medium but its addictive and toxic nature. For some reason – I’m sure scientists have already answered that – people get hooked on this thing really bad.

There’s also a lot of noise out there. The bulk of information is worthless and emotionally harmful. The intent behind most updates is just a self-seeking cry for recognition, praise, support, admiration, validation, which adds no value to your life.

But there are also people who broadcast beautiful things. Thoughts that inspire and challenge your perspective. Successes that drive competition in a positive way. Conversations that lead change. Personalities that put a smile on your face.

Why should I and you miss out on all of this?

We don’t quit the world because there are bad people out there. We ignore and avoid them. People on social media are the same, the medium is just different.

Isolation is no answer, that’s my main takeaway here. I’m sorry but that’s all I’ve got. There’s no point to quit social media entirely, just on principle. Just because some people say stupid things. That’s selfish, stupid, and adds no value.

Instead, mute the toxic noise in your feed and follow people who push you forward as a lover, a founder, a father, a human being or whoever you strive to be. Oh, and don’t engage in social networks during your peak productivity hours and you’ll be fine.

Social media gives you easy access. It’s you choice what and how much to take from it.

Kourtney Kardashian And Scott Disick Don’t Know How To Quit Each Other

Kris Jenner has clearly been working overtime.

It looks like Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are back together after more than a year apart, E! News reports. 

Over the past few months, the two have tested the boundaries of amicable separation, jetting off to Mexico in November and grabbing lunch in public together more times than Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. 

“They are back together and giving their relationship a try again,” a source told the media outlet. “Scott’s mellowed out a lot and hasn’t been partying.”

According to the same E! source, their children were the reason for reconciling because they “both want to make it work for them and their kids.”

The longtime couple split back in July 2015 after nine years together. Kardashian and Disick had been dating since 2006 and share three children, Mason, 6, Penelope, 4 and Reign, who will turn 2 in December.

The breakup was reportedly triggered by Disick’s long-simmering substance abuse issues ― he reentered rehab right before and a couple months after their separation ― and rumors that the reality star was unfaithful to Kardashian. 

Despite these hurdles, Disick has maintained a regular presence on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” He accompanied the family on a trip to Vail earlier this year and can often be seen playing the doting dad on the family’s reality show. 

“The idea of having my family together is amazing, but it’s not the way things ended up. They may end up there. I’m not sure,” Kourtney told Cosmopolitan in October. “To me, it’s in God’s hands. If it’s meant to be, then things will line up.”

The two are reportedly now living together in the family’s home, despite Disick purchasing his own bachelor abode in the same neighborhood this past January. 

And all was right in Calabasas.

Fake Ruth Bader Ginsburg Won’t Quit Under President Trump In ‘SNL’ Skit

Saturday Night Live” imagined what life will be like for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following Donald Trump’s presidential election victory.

Kate McKinnon as the 83-year-old liberal justice told “Weekend Update” host Colin Jost that she’d previously had it all figured out. After Hillary Clinton’s election win, she’d planned to retire in the Dominican Republic.

But Trump’s win had now put paid to her plans, and she vowed to never step down ― over fears the president-elect would usher in an ultra-conservative replacement.

“You can’t get rid of me,” she shouted.

“The bench is now my porch. I’m going to sit on it all day and scream, ‘No! Get out of my yard,’” McKinnon as Ginsburg later said, before adding, “I’m eating an apple a day to keep Ben Carson away.”

This Woman Quit Her Corporate Job To Fulfill Her Lifelong Passion For Cakes

Late last year, baker Nikki Lee of the Sydney, Australia cake shop Unbirthday took a leap of faith and left her corporate sales job in order to pursue her passion for sweets full-time.

It wasn’t that she was unhappy at her previous job. In fact, Lee worked for a great company, respected her managers and valued the integrity of the work. But she wasn’t wholly satisfied.
2014-05-07-oPRETTYUNBIRTHDAYCAKE5705714.jpg
“Although I was happy in my job and doing all the things that ticked ‘success’ boxes, I knew I would always be settling for the easy path if I didn’t choose to bake,” she told The Huffington Post in an email. “I would have these beautiful, styled pictures of cakes and desserts cut out from magazines and pinned to my cubicle walls at work, reminding me that what I was ultimately working towards was having the time and space to be able to get into my baking.”

In April, Lee’s fiancé Thomas posted a photo of one of her confections to Reddit, writing, “Fiancé who quit her job to follow her dream just completed her first wedding cake commission.” The photo of the wedding cake (see right) garnered more than 2,500 upvotes on the site, and one commenter called it “the prettiest cake I’ve seen.”

How’s that for validation? Lee opened up to HuffPost Weddings recently about her life-changing decision.

What was the moment that you finally decided to quit your job and start Unbirthday? Was there one specific event that pushed you over the edge?

I have always been a big believer in pursuing personal passions, whether it be in your career or as a hobby. You could say “The Moment” came when I did my yearly evaluation of my life, something that I do in September around my birthday every year. I give themes to each year — for example, my 30th year was the “Year of Full Engagement”. Thirty-one was the “Year of Learning and Practice”.

I decided my 32nd year would be the “Year of Wholeheartedness.” I took the time to question what this meant for me, and what it would look like if I was living my life “wholeheartedly”. I decided it was important to immerse myself in doing things that I truly loved. Cake-creating was one of those things that I knew I had to do if I was really honest with myself. I also felt strongly that I was at a crossroads in my life — that I could stick to corporate work and climb the ladder, or I could let that idea of myself go and explore my creative side. I also saw this year as a small window of time where I had no major financial obligations in the form of a mortgage or any children that were relying on me, so I could afford to focus my energies on this process.

How long had you been dreaming of pursuing baking full-time?

Since I was a kid! Unbirthday is me as an adult fulfilling what I wanted to do as a child. I remember not wanting dolls or dresses for Christmas, but would dream of the day I would own my own cake mixer.

2014-05-07-rMINIMERENGUElarge5705714.jpg

What role did your fiancé play in your decision? Was he supportive?

Thomas just proposed last week! He was a true supporter of me and still is to this day. He posted my photos on Reddit as a surprise. He keeps me grounded every day, but still pushes me to fly. He continually checks in with me to see how everything is going, always encouraging me forward. He’s happy to be my taste tester for new creations, and actually volunteers to clean up the kitchen while I work. A girl couldn’t ask for more in a partner!

How did other people in your life (friends, family) react when you told them that you quit your job?

They were supportive and are also used to me making these kinds of life-changing decisions. I dropped out of university when I was 19 to start my own graphic design business. My parents freaked out, and in hindsight, I understand why! I was young and overly confident, thinking I was invincible in my twenties. But that was the time in my life to do some invaluable learning and pick up some fantastic life skills that I wouldn’t have learned if I went down a more conventional path.

2014-05-07-rREDDITCAKElarge5705714.jpg

What was your biggest fear about going out on your own?

The most difficult thing was sharing something that was quite personal to me with others. This surprised me a lot, as my last role required me to make cold calls to prospective clients and sell them things. I know a lot of people would rather die than do that, but I loved it and found it easy. With Unbirthday, yes, I am selling cakes, but it is also a form of personal and creative expression which I initially felt quite self-conscious about showing others.

The other hard part was letting go of how I identified myself professionally. I went from being a corporate business development manager to a baker. It made me realize how much we identify and judge people based on what is written on their business cards. Shedding my old identity was hard, but it kept me true to my intentions.

I believe everyone has got their own version of “Unbirthday” somewhere, bubbling away under the surface. I just wanted to make sure that I was able to tell myself that I had given my dreams a real chance, regardless of what the outcome would be. One of my favorite sayings is, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” This is my mantra for life and Unbirthday.

2014-05-07-rFLOWERCAKESLICElarge5705714.jpg

What does your typical day look like since you started Unbirthday?

I wake up early when I can, and do a round of tai chi training with my father (both my parents are tai chi instructors). Then, I’ll either be fulfilling orders or experimenting with new ideas for cakes. I work from my kitchen at home, so it’s quite relaxing with very little pressure.

Was leaving your other job worth the risk?

Yes, without a doubt. It’s one of those things that I can check off my life’s to-do list — nothing more satisfying than that!
