should it come as a shock that so many of us are affected by social media?
some are in so deeply that their homes are decaying and their hearts are breaking.
others have no other alternative to connecting with loved ones.
when i said it was heavy stuff, i meant it.
so after spending much of my weekend nursing my two little sickies back to health, sterilizing my house, throwing away snotty tissues, pleading that i do not catch the bug, and studying up on the "what to do about my disconnected life" question during nap times...
(yes both handsome and the little were sick and in constant need of snuggling the mrs.)
i have decided to take this blog in a little different direction.
once a week i will have a topic that is hot in our home...i.e. last weeks social networking whirlpool and our disintegrating relationship.
my hope is that we can gain perspective from each other and i can share things i am finding to remedy our relationship and help heal family life.
i will issue a challenge to myself and report back on my progress.
last wekk blake and i deleted facebook and all the social networking apps on our phones.
it felt so heroic.
i kid you not, we had the most wonderful weekend and we didn't even do anything.
we were better to each other and more involved in the now.
it felt AWESOME!
this week my challenge is kind of little, but i feel really excited about it.
i made this print to keep by my computer to remind me of my choices and if what i am doing is contributing to the harmony of my home.
it was inspired by this video i watched that was made by mormon messages.
it was made for the youth, but i think each of us can find it's applicable vices.
now i know not everyone who reads this blog is mormon.
some of you may not even know what the cuss i am talking about.
i am mormon and a lot of my feelings and thoughts will be based off of what i believe.
feel free to cater it to your life, or if you are unsure how it can relate to you,
we can figure out how it will best help you and your own life.
so that's it.
it is really easy.
i am just going to put this little sign by my computer and see what happens.
next week i wanna talk facebook.
i have been studying up some gems for you.
thanks for being a part of my changes!
