Journaling Life

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.

Somewhere Along the Way

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.

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.
