So last week, if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you may have noticed I went MIA. That’s because I decided to see what my life would be like with out social media. A one week social media fast.
Honestly it was a bit stressful since I use Facebook to run my business, but it was also peace to my mind. There was no advertisements, making me think I NEEDED stuff, I really don’t need. There was no politics. There was no debates and opinions. There was just me,living life with my family and close friends, without unnecessary drama (for the most part).
The one thing that hit me the hardest, was how much time I had! I had time to get my house clean, and read, and relax! I even shampooed my living room rug! My kids are growing up so fast and I realized that I don’t have the time to enjoy them as much as I should, because I get sucked into life on Facebook…..BAD! I mean, we had time to build a blanket fort that took up half my living room for two whole days!
We did crazy, weird fun things like dress up poor Rascal in Karl’s pajamas.
We ate a lot of bread and butter
Sometimes we don’t realize how beautiful life is, because we have our heads stuck in a bucket, to get that last little bit of tasty alfalfa dust.
It was nice that winter finally came, and we had time to enjoy taking the kids sledding on Luigi’s homemade duck tape sled.
I love catching moments of my kids playing together and bonding over ings like wooden chairs and the movie Cars. They are the sweetest thing in my life and I cannot, will not afford to miss out on watching them, because of social media. I do get addicted to Facebook, I admit that, and this past week has shown me what kind of impact it has on my life and my family’s life. So here’s to skipping out and living a REAL life, better.
