well well well, believe it or not, i'm giving in...
i am going on a social media cleanse!!
okay, with the exception of my blog, because that would be completely outrageous!
i was thinking this morning, and it literally made me sick how much time i spend a day on SM
(instagram, face book, twitter, etc.)
i tried calculating it to come up with  approximate hours spent each day.
the numbers literally made me cringe.....eeee
there are those who use it to "stay connected" per say, and the there are those who have an addiction.
i fall under the addiction category, no doubt!
isn't it crazy to think that just 20 years ago, all of most people had to stay connected was a land line?
i honestly cannot imagine it being like that today..so crazy how far the world has come since then.
it's disgusting really....
i find that it actually really stresses me out to keep up with all of it anyway....
i've decided if i start to see a change in the way i feel without it, i'm permanently giving it up.
that is HUGE for me....really though.
so i came across this quote  from Elder Jeffrey R Holland the other day,
this is completely irrelevant to this topic, but i fell in love with it. so i have to share it
"i plead with you not to dwell on days now gone. the past is to be learned from but not lived in. we look back to claim the embers from glowing experiences, but not the ashes. faith is for the future. faith builds on the past, but never longs to stay there. faith trusts that God has great things in store for each of us, and that Christ truly is the high priest of good things to come. the future holds everything for us. keep your eyes on your dreams, however distant and far away."
--Jeffrey R Holland 
what a good guy...love that so much. it's so comforting.
anyway, i hope you all have had a wonderful tuesday. till next time,
xoxo demi
