Brief Intermission...

To be honest, the world has been so heavy to me even more so lately. With the political mess, constant bad news being reported (both online and off), overwhelming social media consumption, and people using me as their constant vent-piece -- I needed a break. I decided to take one, and to take my own advice mentioned in a previous blog post from 2016. This past Sunday, I removed my social media apps from my phone indefinitely. It's definitely helping, not constantly seeing everyone else's life and trying to keep up with hundreds of people on a daily basis.

My childhood and adolescent years were internet free. Times were a bit slower. I miss that. The internet wasn't even a thing until I was mid-way through college, so I've lived half my life without all of the additional noise. To be honest, most days I'm still not used to it. I need breaks, time to process thoughts before I'm presented with the next thing. I admire people who can go without any online presence whatsoever - I know a few. Who knows, maybe one day, I can do the same.

Until then... I'm enjoying my quiet time and quality time with my husband, my son, and the rest of my close family and friends. I'm focusing on them, and being present instead of having my face in my phone, missing priceless moments. I may even have time to update this blog a little more, get more creative ideas. What I do know, is - I am definitely looking forward to learning what God wants to reveal to me in this season. :)
