Believe it or not there was once a time when I thought tweet meant twat and Facebook meant you were a needy attention seeking wanker.
To be fair, some days these thoughts are proven true still to this day. However, I’m talking a fair few years ago when I’d literally roll my eyes at people talking about social media.
It was all relatively new and looking back I was in a place where my life wasn’t fulfilled, I didn’t have a purpose and was generally negative towards most new things.
I’d sit at my desk in the office at the 9-5 job I had, sniggering at the ‘losers’ putting their lives out online for the world to see. Getting involved with all the latest celebrity dribble that I gave zero shits about.
So what changed?
I became a Dad. Corben came along and fixed all the default negative sections of my life. He gave me a purpose which in turn refocused my life and changes were made putting me in a much better place in my life.
New things started to intrigue me, consuming became knowledge and sharing became connecting. My world changed.
My default setting for the last 6 years now has been to think, see and do positive things. This way of thinking is no joke, it’s no weird fandangled mythical nonsense, you become more positive in yourself and more positive things happen.
My huge u-turn on social media has surprised even me, but I’m so thankful that I was able to become more open minded and switch up my mindset.
What I want to know is your stories. Do you remember how you felt when social media first became popular, how long did it take for you to become wrapped up in it all?
