oh hello blog. how you been boo? today marks three years with this little blog baby. it’s been a fun journey.
today i wanna chat a little about something i’ve been struggling with lately. & i hope it’s not a boring topic. i hope it’s relatable. & i hope some of you have some wise words of advice to give me. bc if we don’t do this together, what’s the point?!
i often tell people i have a/d/d/. i have never been diagnosed, but i believe i get distracted easily. i honestly wonder how someone can carry a conversation with me for more than two minutes without me interrupting or literally walking away in the middle of it.
well, i must deal with the a/d/d/. & what better day to tackle this than on the first day of december?! & ps btw – it was 70 degrees in maryland today. hashtag blessed. am i right? haha
so i’m stripping the distractions. right now – i’m heaving into insta & fb. they are my little thumb magnets. i get bored. tap tap. i get sad. like like. i get jealous. block block. the struggle is real, y’all. i have always believed in the power of social connections – they are deep & shallow, powerful & powerless, sincere & fake, oh gosh – it’s a double edged sword. i have yet to figure out the right balance for me, myself & i, but i often take month long breaks.
that’s what starts today. the goal? well, the ultimate goal is that i train this a/d/d/ heart & mind to seek jesus in the moments i seek distraction. sometimes it’s less work & much more fun to check up on the lives of my friends than to talk to god about the current issue in my life. am i right? tell me i’m right.
do i think this social media hiatus will cure me from wanting a little r&r from real life problems every once & awhile? of course not, silly. i’m being realistic. but i love recalibrating my life. this is super managable too – it’s not life or death – it’s just a little vacation from all the noise. & there is certainly a ton of noise in december, isn’t there? sike, who am i kidding – every month is noisy. every single month.
this beautiful song popped up in my youtube subs tonight & i laughed at how perfect the lyrics are. i hope you love it as much as me. xo thanks for reading you beautiful people.
