𝐘𝐔𝐏, 𝐈 𝐅𝐀𝐈𝐋𝐄𝐃...as some of you already know. I tried to take a social media break and I barely lasted 48 hours. I was honestly just overwhelmed with people (lol), but before I knew it, I was logged into my account doing research, posting promotional materials, gaining media contacts, and all kinds of stuff 😩. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ At first I was really disappointed in myself like “wow, you really can’t stay away from social media for two days?” Then, I realized 𝑯𝑶𝑾 I was using it and became proud of myself for recognizing it as a tool & not just a way to pass the time or check in on people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀𝑴𝒐𝒓𝒂𝒍 𝒐𝒇 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒚: Social media is a TOOL, and when you mute the noise (literally, mute people), and leverage it for productivity over anything else...you’ll find that maybe it doesn’t have to be such a toxic place after all...you just have to change how and why you’re using it.

Bouncing on the edge of the back seat of the truck, I peered over the drivers seat. The “oh shit” bar in one, white knuckled hand; my camera in the other. We were on his tail, trying not to lose him.
Above, the helicopter kept pressure on him so he wouldn’t find any holes in the brush or fence.
Cash sat by my side, bouncing along, as the truck rattled across the terrain; he was having the biggest time, while I – was a little worried, to say the least, for his safety.
Up ahead, the fence we were running the maverick along, dead-ended into the make-shift trap the cowboys had built, where we had already caught the momma cows and calves and loaded them into trailers earlier that morning.
Tighter and tighter, we kept the pressure on him so he wouldn’t have time to see the pens; nor have any second thoughts while the cowboys hid behind the trucks and trailers; which were now in plain sight of the bull.
From behind, we crowded him into the trap, and rushed to close the panel. Not like he couldn’t knock it down- which he later would...
The maverick stopped, and looked over at the cowboys who were emerging from their hiding places to see if he had loaded into the trailer; or not.
Likewise, the helicopter, crowded in- encroaching from the sky, hovering right over the bull in attempt to make him load.
And the bull, short of breath, and having never seen the likes of no cowboy before, much less a helicopter cowboy- turned away from the trailer to look around him, and ...perhaps, for the first time in his life, looked up into the sky.
II A friend of ours had me knock the dust off of this picture Saturday night; and I don’t think this’n ever made it to my feed before. Aside from old pictures, it is maybe the memories I love reminiscing on perhaps even more. But without pictures, some memories would be lost forever. Here it is; when a maverick looks up into the sky.
