About a year qgo, my relationship status with social media changed to "it's complicated" after noticing that the more that I used social media (Facebook and Instagram in particular), the worse I felt emotionally. Thus began the process of trying to extricate Facebook from my life. If you found your way here, you know what a difficult and frustrating process that can be.
The summer after graduating college I lived with Rick, Andrew, and Gill in a Saratoga Springs house (four-walled structure) with an indoor hot tub. Andrew reminded me today that "there was originally one in every room, but that wasn't up to code. You'd pay for a hot tub, a bottle of cheap champagne, and maybe some company if you didn't bring your own."
In life and in the water, there are moments we face fear or pain or both. Spiritual growth is the decision we make in the moment to acknowledge our pain, breath through it, and let the waves carry us back to shore.
