Social Media is everywhere these days! Not that it's all a bad thing, but it can quickly turn that way if you allow it.
The problem with social media isn't really social media itself, but how we let social media control our lives.
Many of us start to let social media consume us, obsessed with being "liked" by others.
We get so caught up in the numbers.......
How many followers do I have?
How many likes did this picture get?
Did anyone retweet my genius thought?!
It can quickly take over our thoughts and becomes an unrealistic measure of our worth.
I recently discovered Essena O'Neill....She was what they say "internet famous", a social media star.
Recently Essena quit social media....why?!.....because it started to take over her life. Obsessed with being perfect online, she was missing out on real life. So......she decided to quit and become a game changer.
I gotta say.....I am very impressed by this young women. She is taking a stand and is determined to make the world a better place, be present in her life and not worry about how much she is being "liked" by others.
We can all learn from Essena! Not that we all have to quit social media, but we need to stop letting it consume us. Be present in the wonderful life we have and know that our worth is measured way more than numbers.
One thing that breaks my heart is when people don't see their own strength.
I'm sure it's a common problem for most people and honestly, I sometimes have a hard time with it too.
But.... we are all stronger than we think.
We can accomplish far more than what we think we are capable of......
We've all seen it in movies and shows, or read about it in books... the classic fairytale love story. Two people that were made for each other. They would do anything for each other and no matter what life throws at them, they seem to handle everything together with grace.
If only it were that simple........
You can say you're sorry, but once words are spoken they can never be taken back.
Words are powerful!
Everyone has an opinion.... and with today's age, full of social media everyone has something to say and a platform to say it on.
The problem is not voicing your opinion (unless it's done disrespectfully.) The problem I see is that many people these days do not take the time to be aware of who is around them and how their words can affect others.
It’s no secret that I do not like to have a lot of things in our home.
We normally go through our house about 2 times a year and get rid of things we don’t use anymore… and yet I still feel like we have too much.
We don’t spend a lot of money on things, we don’t spend much on birthdays or Christmas or even anniversaries….
Instead we choose to spend our money on.....
I feel like as parents we are always second guessing ourselves.
"I'm I doing enough?"
"I'm I teaching them well?"
"I'm I going to raise them to be good people."
There are normally constant questions on what and how we are doing as parents.
Be very aware with who you are giving your time and attention to, because they will rub off on you….. make sure it’s for the better.....
Alright, fellow mama bear…. I see you and I want you to know that you are doing a great job!
I know that you are so very thankful for the little blessings in your life, but I can also see how much pressure you are putting on yourself. But, I’m here to tell you that you are doing a great job!.....
Let’s all be super honest here for a minute……
it’s not always relaxing having little ones in the house. Of course little kiddos are a huge blessing, but not all blessings are easy…. or calm……. or quiet.
Even the most relaxing of people can get more stressed with little humans running around and not listening.
So if you are a fellow Mama Bear and you are needing a little bit of advice or encouragement to get through the day…
Here are my top 3 tips to relax more with little ones in the home.............
Have you ever found yourself sitting in your home trying your best to relax only to find yourself continually stressed and anxious?
I know that we all have busy lives and we all have tons of things on our plate, but did you ever think that it could actually be your home that is stressing you out?!.......
When I stopped feeling sorry for myself, I became stronger......
