Getting back to what's important

On Sunday I threw a little bit of a fit and I shut down my Facebook account. I realized that if I did not check my Facebook a few times a day, then I would start to get anxiety about it. And I would read others posts and take them so seriously. I was being judgmental, emotional, irrational... It was making me a mess.

How did I get like that? How did social media become such a HUGE impact in my life? I would not talk to my friends for months because I can stalk their page and find out what is going on. I MISS my friends. I miss laughing with them, and joking around. I miss acting like a complete moron in public and having people laugh so hard they have coke come out their nose.  So I deactivated my Facebook for a while.

And good things started happening. My cousin called and we had a girls night. My Friends Ashley and Lacie and I had a girls night. I have not laughed so hard in a long time. And it was so great to see them again.

I have also got to spend more time with my hubby! We have laughed, talked, flirted... it has been great. I did not realize how much time social media was taking up in my life.

This might be lame of me.. but I have had withdraws. I do miss being able to log on and stalk my friends. I miss being able to post random crap for the world to see. Such as...  "wow.. on the way to work today, I saw a pink truck. I was a little jealous!"... Or.. "Its midnight and I just can't sleep... WHY!"...   "girls night... Ashley almost had her caramel shake come out of her nose.. it was awesome!" You know.. random crap like that... that no one cares about!!!   -- I honestly do miss it though.

I think I will be back on Facebook some time after the presidential election...  A month or so is just long enough to prove that I CAN break my addiction. And long enough to get all of the political posts over with.

In the mean time.. I am going to keep posting here. A little less than I used to, and I am going to keep kicking a$$ in the gym.

PS.. I am moving my weigh in days to Wednesday. I started a fitness challenge and we weigh in once a week every Wednesday. So, do not get your panties in a wad when you do not get to see what I came it at tomorrow. :) Your going to have to wait until the 17th.

Also... If you have not entered my give away... DO IT!!!!!

Pin It!

  1. You really struck a nerve with me with this post. I spend a crazy amount of time on social media sites - time that could be spent more productively. Maybe I'll join you in the Facebook hiatus!
