Are you a bot or a human?

Technology makes it easier than ever to replace true action, engagement, and connection with things like “hashtag self-care” or “button-click advocacy.” Too many people limit their self-care to simply sharing motivational memes on Facebook … and then wonder why their lives aren’t changing for the better.

Why vote or help in your community when you can simply “like” the page of your favorite politician? (And I apply this to all political parties).

Why head to church when you can watch a thirty-second video of your favorite preacher on Facebook?

For many people, button-pushing has replaced engagement, connection, and community. It’s also replaced good, old-fashioned action.

Stop being a bot.

Stop merely posting about change and wishing it would happen. Make it happen.

A hashtag or GIF won’t save your life or the world around you, but getting your ass off the couch and living intentionally just might.
