I have been waiting for the right moment or time to sit down and start this blog… there never seems to be the “right” time. I am going to make a concerted effort to refrain from wasting so much of my time on social media. Not because I think that there is anything “wrong” with social media, in fact, I think that it’s a wonderful thing. For me, I waste too much time. So I have pared down my “friends” list and I have revamped my posts. I want to make sure what I am sharing is helpful, inspiring or at the very least informative. I started using social media to keep up with and share my life with my friends and family who I don’t get to see every day. My husband and I have moved away from our family and social media makes it SO easy to share our lives and the lives of our children but somewhere between my desire to stay connected to the people that mean so much to me I have also accepted friends requests from social contacts, business contacts, people I used to know from high school, middle school and even elementary school. Even though it’s interesting to see what everyone is up to and to connect with people who I used to share my life with- it’s all become a little overwhelming and a huge time and energy black hole.
I have spent the last week being ill, taking care of my ill children and husband and tending to my home. It has also given me a great opportunity to reflect on a lot of aspects of my life. Sitting up at 2AM in the morning, rocking a baby that is struggling to breath gives you a new perspective. Although I have always said that my family comes first in my life, I have come to a place where that rings more true than it ever has. So there are changes to be made… this blog is one of them. Welcome.
