Sorry I haven’t written in a while. Los and I decided to do a little social media fast to help us focus and spend more time with God.
Let me just say… WOW!
Not having the mindless scrolling everyday taking up your time… so much more opened up. It was as if my mind was clear for the first time in a while. I didn’t realize how consumed and programed we are to just open our phones every time we get a little bored. Think about it…
As soon as we have to do any little bit of waiting what do we do? Grab our phones… waiting in line to pay… phone. Waiting in an elevator… Phone. Lounging around at home… Phone.
We aren’t giving our minds the chance to just RELAX. Once we started the fast it quickly turned in more than just no social media… We didn’t really have our phones at all! It strangely felt like freedom… but why? When did we make these gadgets and “things" like chains? Don’t get me wrong… there is a lot of good that comes out of our gadgets and phones and what not. I wouldn’t be writing to you now if we didn’t have it… But I think we could all use a healthier balance. We get so consumed with the things that don’t matter. Scrolling and comparing and then judging ourselves according to what we are seeing on our screens!
One thing I struggle with (Los always gets on to me about it and I have been working on it lol…) is putting myself down. I think we all naturally are our toughest critics… but we have to remember who we are in God’s eyes! Not through "worldly" eyes. I know it’s easier said than done. But we just have to remind ourselves that most of what we see on tv/movies/internet/magazines AREN”T real!!! So Why compare yourself to something that isn’t real?!
Okay, enough of that! Lol… I am literally typing all of this while eating rice krizzle treats (Fruity pebble rice crispy treats). They are most definitely NOT on my healthy foods list!
I have been trying to be a little bit more clean with my eating. It isn’t for diet purposes… I just want a lifestyle change of putting “good” things into my body that are beneficial… not things that could hurt me. I used to eat so much candy! Sugar is really not great for your body. lol One day I just woke up and decided “You know what? I don’t need to eat this stuff.” I have so much more energy! I don’t have the crazy sugar crashes anymore. Don’t get me wrong… I still have my little treats here and there… but it is so different from the way I used to live!
So what’s up guys? Are there things you WANT me to write about? I usually just write about what’s on my mind… but if there are any questions that you guys have… I could always try to incorporate it into our blogs :)
Love you mucho and I will be sure to write more later!
