This being said, I am guilty of being on social media on my phone entirely too much. I can use the excuse that I am using it for promoting my Party Lite business or sharing pictures of wreaths & bouquets that I made. Or maybe even looking for a recipe for dinner. But we all know that I am just scrolling down looking at nonsense that people are plastering all over their walls.
An old friend from High School took a hiatus from social media for Lent. Such a good idea! Not sure I could go cold turkey, but something she said really stuck with me. She felt like she was being a bad influence on her niece with her phone always in her hand. It mad me think about all the times I have been just sitting on my phone when I could be being present with the people around me. I also thought about the fact that we know far more about people than we need to. It's great to see pictures of folks & how they and their families have grown. But fights & personal business need to stay between the people it involves.
In the next few months I am going to make an effort to cut our time on electronics.
For me, less time on Social Media & more blogging. And for my son, we will be cutting his time on video games & YouTube videos. This means more crafts & books. Luckily my son loves crafting as much as his momma. I try to have craft time at least once a week. For Christmas I stocked him up with paints, wooden sticks, paper, glue.
All the essentials for a good craft.
