It’s been getting more and more difficult lately for me to stomach social media. I used to not mind the constant barrage of garbage that streamed out at me. In fact, I used to chime in all the time with a bunch of my own opinions. But I have changed quite a bit and now I just don’t want to join the masses. I’m still on my social media sites, but it’s not like it was once upon a time for me.
I left Facebook for quite a while, and I wonder every day why on earth I rejoined. Most of the time, I just don’t see the point. There are a few groups I enjoy being a part of, but that’s it. I convince myself to stay because there are a few family members and friends that I know I will never hear from if I leave. I know this because I did leave and it was as if I ceased to exist. It’s sad. And I often wonder why I care when obviously taking time outside of Facebook is so hard for others… Ugh. But I do care… so I stay.
I recently purchased another Chic Sparrow traveler’s notebook. This time I got the Sidekick. I’ve seen so many people turn these things into wallets that I thought I would do it, too. I’d tried the wallet thing once before and didn’t like it, but I thought maybe now would be different since I have grown so much in my crafty abilities.
Have you ever felt like you lost who you were somehow? I’ve been going through that a bit lately. Actually, I’ve been going through that for quite some time now. I work so hard at being a mom and wife, but somewhere along the way I began forgetting to work on me. And I don’t just mean weight loss here. That seems to be a never ending battle for myself and for many other women. What I mean is that somewhere along the way I forgot to pursue the things that I’m passionate about… And eventually, somehow, somewhere along the way, I just forgot altogether what made me, well, me.
So I decided to do something about it. I’ve always loved journaling and I decided to join a group that was dedicated to helping women figure out just who they are outside of motherhood. A group that uses journaling to get to heart of who you are. I’m not promoting the group (not an affiliate, not getting paid) so I am not going to put any links or anything. I just wanted to come on my blog and share a little bit about something I enjoy that’s making a difference in my life.
