As some of you may already know, I have been taking a break from all social media for going on three weeks now. Only after that break began did I unceremoniously decide that I will be extending the break until I have completed a number of important, personal projects that I have put aside for far too long.
One of the most profound results of this break so far has been the amount of personal capacity I have regained to focus my attention on things that I choose to, rather than have my attention constantly highjacked and pointed toward things that are not under my control. All too often, those uncontrolled things ultimately prove themselves to be unhelpful or distracting, whereas the ideas and information I am encountering under the command of my own attention prove to be much more relevant in my quest to be the person I desire to be.
That being said, during this season of reflection and renewal, I have decided that one exception I will be making to this "total fast" from social media is my decision to occasionally post a few things here on my website that I have found to be deeply meaningful for one reason or another. With the help of my wife, these posts will also be shared on my social media feeds, purely for the sake of connecting all of you, my friends, to what I consider to be important information. With her support, I will be able to share these findings with all of you while remaining absent from the platforms myself.
Thanks to each and every one of you who have reached out privately to show your love, friendship, and support to me since this break began. You are all treasures to me. I look forward to having lots to say upon my return and, in the meantime, I hope you find the things that I may share here to be challenging, helpful, and life-affirming.

With all my love,
