Coming soon ...

In the event that you are one of the few that have been led to my blog - thanks! I have currently unpublished my posts because I want to take some time to look over the past 9 years of writing and really drill down what it is I want to be, when I grow up. 

PS. This may take a while.

If you want to reach out to me - please do so, I love to meet new people.

You can reach me at elizagoodwin@gmail.com
Please put in the subject: Mind of Elizabeth blog reader, so I can easily know that it's not spam.

All the Best,
Elizabeth

Let the New Year Begin ... Emptying Myself


I came across this quote during my meditation a month back and it immediately struck a cord. Have you ever heard, seen,  or read something that was like being reunited with a long lost friend? This was like being reacquainted to the core of my soul. And I know it is a huge part in my new journey. Here is to the emptiness of everything.

Going UNsocial for a year... Will this be social (media) suicide?


What in the hell am I thinking right? Why would ANYONE want to go UNsocial, as I like to call it? Or commit social media suicide? 

I have been teetering on this idea for some time. I love being social, thinking I am contributing to some length in my friends daily humor and life, but when it is all said and done.... after I dropped from 300+ "friends" to 160.... I asked myself, "Did I somehow "miss out" on something bigger? Or is this somehow just apart of some narcissistic personality disorder and even the 160 friends are just aquaintances, randomly "liking" or adding a "comment" here and there. 

Don't get me wrong, I think we all have great intentions... the same idea that we are gaining something magnificent, saving time by sharing our lives with our friends, saving time because we can post our every thought; which by the way... some things are better not posted! 

But where is this information going? Are we truly gaining something by someone's "like" or "comment" or losing with a lack thereof? Is this going to define me or add to my social ranking? The answer is NO! In fact, I think it is somehow sucking my time and energy from me... And personally, I feel that with all the "friends" I have on Facebook and so forth; that as I sit alone many nights, that I truly do not have any friends. 

This isn't in any way to create sympathy or pity. It is simply how I feel and it is fact. My phone barely ever rings, but HEY! You "liked" my post, so you must like me right? 

So I am going UNsocial, I am committing social media suicide and I if I can foresee the future... I think I am going to come out on the other side JUST FINE! 

Want to keep in touch? Great! I still have email and a phone... so I am not going total backwoods here!!
