Unplugged and Unbothered

Ugh!

Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing people succeed and be happy, but I am T I R E D of seeing it on Facebook and Instagram. I’m completely fed up with seeing so many people experiencing alluring phases of life that I don’t feel I’m even close to experiencing myself. Let’s be crystal clear, I am in no way, shape or form a HATER, but I am overwhelmed. I feel like I am being overloaded with images from my peers of where I should be at this point in life.

Now I can’t point the blame solely at my peers because honestly, I know I’m overdue for a complete social media B R E A K. This break is tremendously needed because I have a strong desire to get reconnect with God and become more centered on His purpose for my life. Although, I feel like I am developing well, I still feel like I have a long way to go.

So, I’ve decided that I will be taking some time to UNPLUG from social media with the primary goal of getting closer to God. Social media has become such a huge distraction from my goals, but going into 2017 I want to put an end to that.

In order to sustain my sanity, I have to just take a break. The plan is to spend as much of my free time as possible becoming more intimate with God.

I need this break!

**Disclaimer: Please do not take it P E R S O N A L, if you do not hear from me for a little while. I just HAVE to eliminate some distractions from my life in order to make it to the next level God is taking me to. Know that this is something I need to do. If you don’t hear from me, please know that I still love you! There are no harsh feelings.**

My Gratitude Journal

 

Whoa,

2016 is really almost over. Where did the year go? I have had some new experiences this year, but I want to experience more in the coming year.

Beginning today, December 1st, I have decided to add something new to my bedtime routine, which is to just keep a written record of five things I am grateful for in that moment.

Every night before I go to sleep I will write in the journal by my bed five different things I am grateful for. The depth of my details concerning what I’m grateful for may vary depending on my mood.

So, the idea behind this new ritual is to set aside a specific time everyday to quietly reflect on the days events and my current position in life to just focus on the good in my life.

Sometimes life can get so frustrating that it is easy to overlook all the positive things happening in my life.

I want to show God appreciation for every blessing in my life and I want to constantly remind myself of all my blessings.

With Love,
